Default Timing chain fail

Hello Dodge people,
Im new on this forum, and I'm i have also just bought my first Dodge not so long ago. (Im also from Norway, so if my writing is bad, thats why

I have a question, its the question that brought me here in the first place, so i hope some of you have a good answer to me

I have a dodge ram srt-10, 2004. And i just had the 10.000miles service, and when the mechanics tryed to start the car to drive it out of the workshop, it would´t start. They told me that the tentioner for the time chain had failed, and that it was a manufacturer foult on the tentioner, so now they try to find out how much that is damaged.. So my question is, is it possible that the tentioner has failed? And what are the chances for that the engine is very damaged, or is the viper V10 engine a non interference engine? Have anyone heard of the problem before? Is it a known weakness on this model?
