When replacing the tensioners for the timing chain, at the mileage of 99,000, should the chain be replaced? Are there any other parts during this work which is being done in conjunction with cam shaft senor replacement that I should address?

Since your going to be messing with the chain, check the wear and replace it if it is 50% of the allowable or if its less of the allowable slack.

If I were you I would just replace it no matter how worn due to the fact that it takes time to measure slack, and while you have it off why not replace the chain.

Just check the wear and replace as needed, you problably wont have to replace it but I would.
