First you need to understand that your engine does not have valve covers. if you remove the ignation coil pack cover you will see to very thin covers this are not valve covers they are camshaft covers and if you unbolt them you will be removing the camshaft towers and this is not a good thing, do not unbolt them unless you are planing on replacing the timming chain because you will need to remove it to remove this covers, if you have an oil leak at the top of the engine it is most likely not the canshaft towers but is the oil sinding unit it is located under the coil cover at the back of the cylinder head....good luck

I have a 2000 Cavalier Z24 that leaks oil bad. The oil drips off of the bottom of the engine between the oil pan and transmission. I also noticed some oil at the top where the upper cooling hose is.


With this age of engine, the most likely cause is plugged up drain holes in the head. This allows the oil that goes to the cam and valve mechanism to be retained under the valve cover and present a challenge to the old valve cover gaskets,. Recommend you remove the valve cover, make sure the oil drain holes are clear and replace the valve cover gasket.

How to replace a timing chain 2000 chevy cavalier


I am familiar with that vehicle but generally with timing chain replacement, the engine needs full access for pulley and cover removal and in some cases the cylinder head requires removal.
Generally timing chains last so that they only need replacement at engine overhaul and it is not an economic proposition to have to replace a chain unless some relative degree of engine work is also required at that time. 

Engine timing chains generally have a tensioner on them which maintains tension, but some chains can wear significantly and cause timing cover to be "ground away" because of "slop".

If the engine is making the noisy rattle of the timing chain against the cover etc, I would schedule a top overhaul (head, machine, test and valve grind) with the chain replacement dependent on mileage with the degree of action.

Some simple simplex timing chains (type of chain similar to motor bike chain) may be replaced without dismantling the engines but I would expect your chain would be a "duplex" dual sprocket type, these are most common. 
These chains are not generally expensive but replacing them can involve a fair amount of work. 

Good Luck and hope this helps, Others will have different ideas.

Need the a/c service port valve ( the one with blue cap)


You can buy the valve and cap at any professional auto parts store like NAPA. The bigger question is how you're going to replace it if the system is filled with refrigerant. Your best bet is to find a shop that has the special tool that can replace a valve core without having to evacuate the system. That'll cost less than removing all the refrigerant and refilling.
