well if you know its making noise from the timing chain then its probably time to replace the chain and chain tensionors and chain guides, the tensioners and, guides are more likely to make that type of noise but if you havent replaced the chains it would be a good idea to do it all at once
These usually have timing belts, if the water pump isn't making nose, leaking or dragging, put it back on. If it does have a timing chain in it, put new timing gears and guides in it as well, easier to do while you already have it apart. Check your power steering pump to make sure it is not leaking or the bearing isn't dragging, if so replace. Replace the thermostat while you have it apart. Check all hoses and belts to see if they need to be replaced while your at it, you will have most of them off anyway. Definitely check the serpentine belt that runs everything on the front of the motor, if it is cracked or worn, replace. Better to do it now rather than along the side of the road. Hope this helps you.
On both sides of the chain, right above the crankshaft, there are two guides. The chain runs over these guides, the tenion is adjusted by moving one of the guides in more to press on the chain tighter.
your intrepid doesnt have a timing belt it has a chain. there are major problems with these engines, theres a big one with the chain jumping due to a tensioner breaking or a guide,heres a diagram for the chain setup.this is a very important setup make sure you use correct sprokets in the right place and also if it jumped timing il bet you may have some bent valves,
