Just the guide is probably making the noise. So either a new guide or a new chain. I would start with guide first, unless chain looks loose or cruddy

Replacing the timing chain is done around 100,000 miles, but can last as long as 200,000.
Sounds like something may be on its way out, and a rattle does indicate a chain. Not all oil pumps use chains...many use gears to spin the oil.
Most people know when it needs replacement when they are calling for a tow truck.
It could be your water pump as well. It is hard to tell where the sound comes from sometimes. A stethescope may help pin-point the sound to the part.

SOURCE: 92 voyager oil pump replacement.
The Oil Pump is behind the Crankshaft Sprocket which does involve the Timing Chain.
You will have to remove the: Timing Chain Cover, Timing Chain and Crankshaft Sprocket to gain access.
Let me know if this helped...

Testimonial: "great advice, and obviously knows how to fix and maintain cars."
The warranty company is wrong, the oil pump is in the bottom of the engine, inside the oil pan. The timing chain is behind a cover on the front of the engine. An extra hour to r&r the timng chain is reasonable. My question would be, "why in the world does my 4 year old $40,000 truck need a new oil pump and timing chain already.

The best way is to pull the motor out. The timing chain cover needs to come off of the front of the motor (behind the water pump) and this can be done with the motor in the car. The problem comes when you try to put the cover back on. There is a seal that fits in a groove on the bottom of the timing cover. The seal will not let the cover go back into place without damaging the seal. The oil pan needs to be dropped down and then the timing cover goes into place. The oil pan goes on after the timing cover is in place. Any other way will result in premature failure of the timing cover to oil pan seal. If you have enough room under the car and can remove the oil pan, that will work also. I hope this helps.
