I've not replaced my timing chain tensioner, but the manuals share warnings regarding its installation. If you'd like to see that information, please send a p/m with an email address and I will send it to you.

You may not be able to know this. Go to GM.com and contact customer service to determine whether or not any update of the timing system was performed according to their records.

No. You may want to take a look at the spark plug boots and coiled wire contacts between the spark plugs and the coil packs. If you see any cracks replace the worn item, or items.
