Timing chains cannot be fixed, only replaced if too much slack from wear. You will have to pull off the timing chain cover to investigate. If it does need replacing, put the engine at top dead center (tdc) of the compression stroke of number one cylinder-that is zero degrees on the timing scale. before you begin removing anything.

Timing chain 2 7


Your engine will seized and your car will come to a halt. You won't be able to drive it. Of course getting a timing chain replaced before it does damages to the engine is a good idea. Otherwise, it will cost you a lot more to fix if the chain does break.

How do I know that I need the timing chain fixed?


either your car won't start, or if it does it will backfire and sputter. Then check your timing when the timing mark gets dead center on the flywheel, your number one piston should be at the top of its stroke, you can pull the plugs and check this with a pencil inserted in the spark plug hole!

2oo2 cavalier timing chain broke need to know how to fix it??


With a new motor most likley. When a timing chains break pistons tend to collide with valves which can punch holes in the pistons or bend/ break valves. Usually at this point it is more economical to replace the engine than to actually fix it.

yes you must remove the timing chain cover, timing chain, timing chain case, and exhaust manifold, takes about 6 hrs to change, I know I got the same motor and car, good luck and have fun, also you will need to buy a gasket set for the timing chain
