Its not the easiest Gm ever gave us. you have to remove the oil pan to get the front cover off and there is also a balance shaft that tends to make more noise after you do the timing chain. A lot of technicians end having to do it twice because of the noise after.

Your vehicle has a timing chain, not a belt. There is no regular maintenance interval on the chain. If it starts to clatter at idle, it may be time to replace, otherwise, do not be concerned
