Are you sure it's timing chain and not timing belt? Because when I looked, and as you can see in the photos i took, i see a belt but I'm not sure if that's the serpentine/drive belt or timing belt.
That is the serpentine belt... This engine uses a timing chain..

It has a tranny filter? I have the same mileage and all i did was a drain & fill. Are you saying i gotta change the filter too or is the filter just a screen that the mechanic washes off?
Took my ia to Mazda specific repair shop and asked for transmission service. I asked if they recommend me replace the transmission filter and after draining transmission fluid, they said fluid looks fairly clean. No need to service transmission filter...

Work done.

Drain and replace automatic transmission fluid. 3 quarts used.

Side note: instead of Mazda specific fz automatic transmission fluid. They used Liquid moly top tech 1800. Which I am a bit disappointed in since.

I did and continue to not notice any issues so far. Feels the same to be honest. But to be safe. I plan on servicing next drain and fill myself using atf fz or ravenol fz
