    I dont think the chain ever needs changing, the belt on the other hand is 60,000 miles or 5 years, if you are thinking of doing the belt yourself then be careful it is a bitch of a job and not for the feint hearted. If changing the belt do the water pump at same time along with the belt tensioner etc. Good luck
