SOURCE: timing chain setting
Your camshaft and your crankshaft have marks on them. Your timing chain also has marks on it. The timing marks MUST ALL line up at the same time before you move your internal parts. The easiest way to do this is to take out your spark plugs and after tou get the chain, chain tensioner and chain damper on, turn the engine with a wrench watch the marks. The number 1 cylinder should be at tdc.

Yes, you can change it yourself and yes that is a reasonable estimate on the labor.
That being said, let me explain. The timing chain is a very important part. It controls the timing of the intake and exhaust valves opening and closing at the right time in relation to the pistons moving up and down in the cylinders. If you make a very small mistake in changing the timing chain, you will cause major engine damage. On top of that, it is not very easy to get to in the first place.
I would recommend getting a second opinion from another dealership, but if you are asking this question then I would recommend having a professional do the work. It is likely to be less expensive in the long run.

all you need to do is just back up on the chain and it will give you the space you need to remove thw water pump you may all so need to first see is you have water in your oil if not then it not you pump can you tell what color your oil is ?

It's a pain to get out I just did mine belt and water pump it took about 3 times as long as I thought.
Make sure all the bolts are loose, make sure you have removed the tranmission mount as it gives you more room to move the engine. It's suggest you take the exhaust off as well as you can damage it if you jack the engine up too high. Lossen the bolts on the motor mount across from that plate, you will not be able to remove the motor mount but you can spin it allowing you to get that big plate out.
