    last week bought 98 4cyl, 4x4...133,000miles. Looks great, no leaks, runs great. Has new belts, tires etc from previous owner...unfortunately, he has no idea if timing chain was ever changed as he has only put 10,000 on it himself. Should I just drive and service normally, or should I have a mechanic stick a new chain in to be on safe side?
