Answers :

This engine uses a timing chain, chains require no replacement unless the engine is being repaired or the chain or spockets fail
Of course, if your timing gears or chain fail, the engine will suffer significant damage, with valves hitting pistons and bending. Broken rocker arms and even lifters jammed into the head can be a very expensive repair.
\015\012Timing chains on these engines probably should be replaced around the 200K miles mark - when a mechanic replaces the valve cover gaskets he should take a light and inspect the chain guides. If they have significant wear they should be replaced.
\015\012Excessive chain noise and plastic bits in the engine oil are also signs of an impending chain failure, but you won't have much warning.
