Default water pump and timing belt

I have 175K miles on my 2004 Saturn Ion with 2.2 L DOCH ECOTECH ENGINE.

Need to replace water pump should I replace the timing belt/ Chain too?

You can. It would certainly make sense while you are in there.

2006 you make me wonder about some of your answers.

Get the proper tool to hold the water pump drive gear and you won't have to disturb the chain. Unlike a Quad4 you can change a water pump without pulling the engine, it simply bolts on to the back of the timing cover and the special tool holds the gear while your replacing the pump. You do not have to replace the chain while replacing a water pump.

pay attention, I said you CAN not you HAVE TO. at the mileage they have on their car, it's not a bad idea to replace it.
