SOURCE: 1998 Chevy Tahoe will not

You need to check to make sure the injectors are pulsing. Hook up a test light to the injectors and crank the engine over to see if the are pulsing to get fuel to the engine. If not you could have a power or ground issue or if that is ok most likely an ignition module problem in the distributor.

Also, I suggets check the fuel pressure when the engine is cold and turning the starter..these must have no less than 60psi... I would think the fuel pump is pulling too many amps and it will not have the 60psi it needs to start.

Other possibiliti, it sounds like the passlock computer is bad or going bad. A bypass wold work, but you need to read a value. Even hough the auto learning one are easy, there is no guarentee that it would solve your problem. When you put the key in ignition, turn it on (not to crank) dos the security light start flashing? If so, you need to either wait 15 minutes or wait with the key oon until it stops flashing. Once it stops flashing, try to start again. You should get to try it 2 times before the passlock will lock up again.

Turn key to start position for 10 minutes and it will reset passlock. Or, once you're tired of being stranded for 10 min every 6 weeks or so, try the following:

Here's the "fix" for '99 tahoe. Took the cover off the steering column, unplugged the sensor from the cylinder *while* the car was running. it's a 3 wire plug red w/ white, orange w/black and yellow. From then on, the car will always start and ignore the sensor. The only negative is the security light stays on. Replacing the BCM only postpones it from happening again if the problem is the resistance in the ignition lock cylinder. Check out the following links: gm-passlock-ii-system

Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke

Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

Broke timing belt

If the timing belt broke, your car won't run. Fortunately, it's not too expensive to replace, and as long as you are at it, may as well replace the water pump. Usually they have to dismount that in order to get at the timing belt. Generally that is that case, but it all depends on how each car is set up.

Timing chain

bent push rods could have been caused when the chain broke and not from the chain been replaced wrong or the timing out.

if the engine was running when the chain broke the cam would have stopped leaving all the valves in the same positon as the mometum of the fly wheel continued to turn the pistons in the cylendars could hav come up and hitting the valves and bending the push rods. and or damaging the cylendar head.

recommend removing the head and have it checked for damage, as well as replacing the bent push rods, and cylendar gaskit. once the head is checked and the valves are seated well. then replace and follow instructions in the set up for the pistons and cam prior to replacing the chain and setting the timing.

I hope this was helpful.

Timing Belt broke at red light what other issues should I be concerned about for a timing belt change

The one main issue after a timing chain failure is to make sure that you don't have any bent valves. If after you replace your timing chain, you notice the car stumbling, misfiring or any sort of condition that it didn't do prior to the chain breaking, then the valves are most likely bent.

What is timing cover and if this goes do you need to replace timing chain and water pump

engine with 3.3 liters and 3.8 liters are equiped with timing chain.
the timing chain cover is the cover that cover and protect the chain
it must be seal because there is oil that come from the oil pan to lubricate the chain.
normally the cover does not go bad unless the chain broke or some thing hits it.
the water pump is out side and not involed in the timing chain or it cover

Turns over but won't fire

well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine

Broke timing chain in a 3.8 1995 mustang

The timing chain is not a cause for whole engine replacement. If the guy is willing to do it for 150 plus parts and guarentee's it to run right afterwards Id say go for it. 150 Plus parts is a good deal for something like this.
