Does timing chain on 2005 Chevy Equinox need to be replaced and if so when?

A: Does timing chain on 2005 Chevy equinox need to be replaced??

I guess I am confusing timing "chains" with timing "belts?" I recall several years ago a timing "belt" broke on my Nissan Maxima resulting in damage to engine. This begs three additional questions: 1] Clarification: Does my '05 Equinox have a "chain" instead of a "belt?" 2] What is difference between the two ("belts" and "chains"); and 3] If a "chain" breaks, am I facing potential damage to engine? Thanks for your patience! I am a novice! Tom Platt
