If it has a 4 cyl. engine, the timing chain should be replaced at 30,000 miles. If it is a V6, the timing belt should be replaced at 60,000 miles.

What is a way that i can get more horsepower out of my 95 jeep grand cherokee 6 cylinder? It has a lot of miles and i haul a 4 wheeler with it quite a bit and its to the point where it will barley pull it...

Putting a r/v cam in sometimes will help a bit. An r/v cam will not really give you more HP, but will move the torque curve of your engine to a more usable rpm range. Believe it or not, most of the gain you will see isn't from the cam but is from changing the timing chain which in a high mile engine is likely worn. Most engines benefit from advancing the cam a few degrees (they actually sell kits for doing that) when installing. As a chain wears, it actually retards cam phasing.
Changing anything usually is a trade-off. Moving the rpm range of the cam will add low end response but will take away high end performance. If you do not generally run the engine up to 5,000 rpm, you may not notice that though.
Changing the intake, adding headers or adding a "performance chip" all have some benefits but never really give you the "advertised" increase. As far as those chips go, they generally work up around 4-5,000 rpm's and don't add much to everyday driving (read: worthless).
In reality, the most reliable way to restore lost power in a high mile engine is to do a total rebuild or find a compatible engine with lower miles. There is no "bolt on" cure for internal wear and though the Jeep engine is a tough reliable old bird, they do wear!

Does the '94 camry wagon have a timing belt or chain? It's a 4 cylinder.

1994 2.2 liter 4 cylinder is a timing belt, it should be changed every 90,000 miles under moderate driving conditions, under severe driving conditions (stop and go traffic, etc.) it should be changed every 60,000 miles

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee with 141K miles on it. When do I have the timing chain changed?

Depending upon which engine you have and how hard you run it and how often it's serviced (and what kind of oil you use) Most chains will go about 160-180 thousand miles before they stretch enough to put the valve timing out of phase enough to be very noticeable. I don't remember if Jeep ever used a nylon toothed cam gear except for the older ones with GM v6 engines. If you don't have a nylon gear, I have never seen a chain actually break, usually after it stretches, it rides up on the gear teeth and shears them off. That won't happen with a steel gear.(Check with dealer parts dept...they should know what is in there) Therefore, it's likely that either way you have about twenty thousand miles left before you need to worry much about it.

1995 nissan pickup 4 cylinder timing chain - 256k miles

Most definetly yes. It should run you around 500 dollars. If you timing belt breaks it will destroy your valves and head.

Should you replace the timing chain in a 1995 2wd pickup and if so how often

timing chains in most cases never need be repalced for the life of the engine, timing belts on the other hand last about 60,000-100,000 miles.

1995 jeep cherokee timing

You don't have to touch the distributor while doing a timing chain. You didn't mention engine size but in this case it applys to all engines. You will find fairly good instructions in haynes manual for this job.

Timing chain maintenance

It's actaully a timing belt, not a chain. But the mileage recommendation i believe is 60,000 or 90,000 miles.
