Yes. Stop Guessing And Properly Diagnose The Problem.

Is this a 2.7L or 3.2L engine?

What makes you say, " . . . now it looks as if it might be the timming chain."?

Correction: I Should Have Asked If It Was A 2.7L Or 3.5L Engine. Sorry!

Check spark, put an ignition timer on it and make sure the light does flash while cranking. You can also pull a plug out and see if it smells like gas while cranking to confirm you;re getting gas. If that fails, you will need to look in the head for obivous problems and check the timing of the valves against the Crankshaft pulley (which will indicate a timing problem)
