If you have a chain, there's no call to replace it. Different auto manufactures call for different belt replacement intervals between 60,000 and 90, 000 miles.

As far as determing if u have a chain or a belt with the aid of a service manual, on most cars, if you look at the front end of the engine and see a plastic cover on the side, it usually is a belt.
