The timing chain is not a maintaince item like a timing belt. So there is not set number. Yopu change it when you hear it knocking or slapping around.

no, but they have to push in the timing chain tensioner in order to clear the water **** gear. It could be that there is air traped in the tensioner which should bleed out by it-self after running awhile.Or the chain was noisy before but you could not hear it because the water pump was possibly making more noise than the timing chain.

YOU NEED A REPAIR MANUAL.BECAUSE THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF PARTS YOU HAVE TO REMOVE TO GET TO THE TIMING CHAIN.YOU NEED PHOTOS TOO SEE HOW TO SET TIMING MARKS ON CAM SPROCKET AND CRANK SPROCKET.

Not necessarily. You should at least consider it if you are close to a major service milestone (90k, 120k, etc.). It is a lot of work to change the timing chain (belt), but you have to do some of the work anyway to replace the water pump.
