I have a 4cyl/2.7L 1999 Toyota Tacoma w/a little over 82K miles on it. I believe I have a timing chain, not timing belt on it? And was wondering, if it is a timing chain, whether or not I need to replace it and when (ie: mileage)?

What ^^^^ He said. I have never seen an actual chain go. It is always the guides which i believe they improved for the 2.7 from the 22r

I kinda disagree. Chains get streched out over time and need to be replaced. I had to replace one on my old 22RE. It got to the point where the chain had worn into the side and was mixing anti-freeze w/ the engine oil and vice versa. This was around 170k miles though.

That's the guide problem Ike talks about:
