Chain Ticking

I think I have a ticking coming from my timing chain. Its an 05 base coupe with 86,000 mi. Is there a recommended service and how do I do it?

First, figure out where the noise is coming from it could also be the other chain. Changing the tensionner is not a bad idea though.

That sure sounds like timing chain is flopping around. Don't wait until it jumps a cog. If your not sure about doing this, take it to your friendly neighbourhood mechanic. This would be a good preventive maintenance. Check if you have the new version of chain tensioner or still have the old. New one has a bump in the middle of the bolt head.

Nothing if you do it yourself, maybe $50 at a shop plus purchase price of the tensioner.
