2005 Pontiac Sunfire Question: Timing Chain or Belt

 

Question

Which does my car have?
What is an estimate on getting it replaced?
When should I get it replaced? Currently 85000 miles
I have seen suggestions on some sites that tensioners and other items related to the timing chain should be replaced as well. Is this accurate and what should I ask for if I want to do this right?

    The 2.2L 4 Cylinder engine on your vehicle has a Timing Chain. There is not scheduled maintenance interval to replace it unless there is something wrong with the chain and/or timing components.
