I don't know what "timming" or "minic" means, but (from context) I'm assuming you think that you are having some kind of a a TIMING chain problem.
The timing chain simply goes around the crank shaft sprocket and around the cam gear, turning the cam shaft. If it is in place, your vehicle will run. If it breaks, the vehicle will not run. If it is loose, your vehicle may run rough, but there will be an obvious rattling noise coming out of the timing chain cover at the front of the engine, as it moves the tensioner aroundr.
That's about it for a timing chain. There is nothing else to it.
Hope that answers your question!
Now if you have an actual SYMPTOM you'd like diagnosed, try again.... and use spell check :)

these trucks are equipped with an electric vent door motor known as a vent actuator. I believe the actuator that controls this vent is located behind the dash on the driver side.

The best and easiest way would be to go to an auto parts store and get a Haynes owners manual, that would also answer future questions on maintenance and other problems in the trouble shooting section.

It's inside the IP. There are resistors in it that seems to drop out all the time. I haven't figured out if it is a bad solder joint or from heat. But I fix them all the time. They are about 3/8 inch long X 1/16 inch in diameter. Dark brown in color. Located on the top of the board on both left and right sides. They do fall off. So be carefull when you open up the IP. They are hard o find on dark carpet.

More then likely the switch is bad. This is one of the most common failures, even if all the other switches work, doesn't mean that one switch couldn't be bad. Start testing power is you can

Remove the Transmission pan. It is the larger one of the 4 solenoids, it is the rearward one of the set of solenoids. Usually a black color and round like a small pepper shaker. If you are replacing this one, you really should replace them all. This governor pressure sensor, when if fails, usually causes the transmission to start off in 2nd gear and then upshift to other gears is delayed and harsh.
