Actually I believe the engine is a "in line 4" or staight 4. If this is the case the timing belt is actually a chain. Doesn't really need changing. But I've heard of the tensioner and plastic guides do get worn. My 98 Cav is over 220,000 clicks and I still have the original. Just an added footnote, if you change the chain you should change the water pump too.
