The chain will NOT last the life of the engine. Most of the time the chain guide is what needs to be serviced. If you have the service records on the car and it has not been done then do it as soon as possible. Either way you may want to think about replacing it. With the timing chain they will also change the seals.

Hi, it is a timing chain. You can find the specs review in below link indicating it uses a timing chain.

1.3 L I4; 1.5 L I4; 1.6 L I4; 1.8 L I4; 2.0 L I4; 2.3 L I4; 1.4 L Diesel I4 ill guess, ( (die roll)
2.3 L below.

all answers, USA cars, this a USA forum. so.....
ever heard of the FSM the oem factory service manual?

is the chain making noises? if yes, the guide is bad, most chains fail due to that (as a true cause)
the FSM is here , just $4 to look , so ????
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1178-2003-aerio-service-manual.aspx

the clone is Alldata.com DIY, log in and read like we do.
google alldtata.com , bingo....

now the 2.3L (just the first half, ill let you pay $4 like we do)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove engine assembly from vehicle.
  3. Remove oil pan.
  4. Remove cylinder head cover.
  5. Remove timing chain cover as follows:
    • Remove crankshaft pulley bolt. To lock crankshaft pulley, use special tool 09917-68221 (camshaft pulley holder).
    • Remove crankshaft pulley. To remove crankshaft pulley, use special tools 09944-36011 and 09926-58010 (steering wheel remover and bearing puller attachment).
    • Remove A/C compressor bracket.
    • Remove alternator belt idler pulley, water pump pulley and alternator belt tensioner.
    • Remove timing chain cover bolts and nut.
    • For reinstallation of timing chain, turn crankshaft so that timing marks on cylinder head and lower crankcase match with those on sprockets as shown in figure.
    • Remove second timing chain as follows:
      • Turn crankshaft to meet following conditions.
        • Key (I) on crankshaft is positioned as shown.
        • Arrow mark on idler sprocket (II) points upward.
        • Marks on sprockets (III) match with marks on cylinder head. Note that this step must be followed for reinstallation of timing chain.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner adjuster No.2 and gasket. To remove them, slacken second timing chain by turning intake camshaft counterclockwise a little while pushing back pad.
      • Remove intake and exhaust camshaft timing sprocket bolts. To remove them, fit a spanner to hexagonal part at the center of camshaft to hold it stationary.
      • Remove camshaft timing sprockets and second timing chain.
      • warning
      • After second timing chain is removed, never turn intake camshaft, exhaust camshaft and crankshaft independently more than such an extent as shown. If turned, interference may occur between piston and valves and valves themselves, and parts related to piston and valves may be damaged.
      • Remove timing chain guide No.1.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner adjuster No.1.
      • Remove timing chain tensioner.

Timing chain 2006 aerio


timing chains are not maintenance/wear items, they are not anticipated to fail because they don't suffer degradation from heat and fluids like rubber belts do

Does a 2002 Aerio have a timing chain or a belt?


Also known as a Liana in some markets, this may have either a "G" series or a "J" series motor in it. This can be checked by finding the engine number - either G16B123456 or J18A123456. The G series is belt driven, while the J series is chain driven (2 chains).
