The 4.0 liter SOHC , V6 , has ( 3 ) timing chains and the 5.0 liter V8 has ( 1 ) timing chain , if that's what you are asking ?
The timing chain can not be repaired, it must be replaced. To do this you must disassemble the front of the engine. The fan, belt, dampener, water pump and timing chain cover must be removed to gain access to the chain.
