Timing chain chain on 2.5

Would anyone please either point at or do a writeup on 2.5L timing chain change. All discussions I found are ending up in dead leads - "... Some guy sometime ago did a weirdo..." etc. I might be blind or stupid, or both, but for love or money I couldn't find it. I have 169k on my engine and it sounds like a crappy tuned up diesel. I figure tensioner and guide are gone but still not sure about chain. Thanks a bunch in advance.

Pretty easy to do but watch out for the Hanes manual it says 20 pins between marks when,from doing mine, it's really 15 pins ! Take a picture before you take it apart so you know for sure ! If it's off at all it will run like crap like GaryK said.

The tensioner can be a bear to change you have to drop the oil pan or you can just remove c clip from the bracket and put new tensioner on the old bracket is what we did

Are you sure is the timing chain and tensioner making the noise and not a lifter.

wow this is really old original post! Ox has a point; might be play in the chain or a lifter maybe going.... double check play, alignment and components, no brainer, if it is already opened.
Better pray over it!

what is the expected life of the 2.5 timing chain? Guess I am just not aware.....I figured timing chains were pretty much an engine life thing. I thought only the timing belts needed to be changed.
