Think it has a chain. Have ALL timing componets replaced. Too much lobor involved to have to do it again later if another original part fails!

The tensioner is hydraulic; Can not tighten, when it leaks, it needs to be replaced. As far as replacing the timing belt, if you have at 60,000 or more miles on it, probably good idea. It's always better to be safe then sorry.
