I've heard many say change the tensioner and while the cover is off may as well swap it out I suppose; however, I would say to listen to the pitch of your engine before and after the job. My mechanic did the job using some tool that let the tensioner slip and when they re installed the pump the chain was to tight. On a side note, my tensioner was still looking great after 170k, knock on wood. To give the dealer props though, after I took the car back complaining of the different engine pitch, they told me if I bought the tensioner they would install and re tighten the chain for free so I was very pleased.
