HI,
Ok, you will need the timing chain kit, which will include the timing chain, timing chain tensioner and guides, and timing chain cover gasket. You will need the valve cover gasket as the valve cover has to come off for the repair. You will need the oil pump chain kit that includes the chain, tensioner and guides. Finally, you will need new oil, oil filter, and coolant.
There are no timing marks for this engine. You have to use a special tool kit for the crankshaft and camshafts to lock them in place. You can rent or buy this kit from Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, or O'Reillys
