Please tell me what tools i need to change my timming chain on my 97 monte carlo

Mote carlo chevrolet I have a 97 3.1V6 I was being heated and the thermostat quiete you to put the water directly, but it seems that carrying off a rubber gasket or something like that for the thermostat...

These 3.1 V-6s have an issue with the intake gaskets leaking. Look at the front and back of the engine to see if there is water coming out there. The repair takes about 3-4 hours(professionally) and the better part of a day if you doing automotive as a hobby. If you determine that the gaskets are whats causing the leak, let me know and I will send you instructions on how to repair the problem.

Knocking noise when turning left in the front end on 98 mote carlo

Check the front wheel bearing, it is probably worn. Could be a ball joint. Grab the front wheel and pull back and forth, if it moves in and out...something is worn.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.

This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood
If not:
To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack.
Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow
Good Luck
