SOURCE: Slightly adjusting the timing chain on a 98 Chevy

Your playing with fire to try to adjust something thats not designed to be adjusted even the hi dollar fancy racing teams are very careful going any from the factory specs as they have dynos and scopes and way more money to spend than me and you. No stock engine being used as a daily driver should be changed unless it's back to standard. Your stepping into deep **** unless you have deep pockets to deal withblown mototers and other bad stories. I know them and I can write them

2002 chevy malibu engine 3.4 interference motor or not?

The 2002 Chevrolet Malibu has the 3.1mfi engine which is not an interference engine. It has a timing chain and not a belt. It is an o.v.h. system with two valves per cylinder. I have replaced timing chains and have had the heads checked, with no damage to the valves.

Lifters/car not starting

Do you have the 2.2 liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine, the 3.5 liter V6, or the 3.9 liter V6 engine? If you have the 2.2 liter engine, there may be a camshaft/timing chain issue if you skipped a tooth when you put the chain back on the cams. If it's a 3.5 or a 3.9 liter V6, you may have incorrectly installed the push rods back into the engine. 3.5 liter intake push rods are approx 5 3/4" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6" long.
The 3.9 liter intake push rods are approx 5.81" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6.1" long. If you mix the two lengths up when you put them back in the engine, you're going to have problems.

Where is the water pump located on a 1998 chevy malibu 4 cyl?

It is located at the rear of the engine between the timing cover and exhaust manifold. You will have to remove the manifold to ge to pump. It runs off the timing chain. It would be a wise decision to take to an experienced mechanic.

1999 chevy malibu

That engine does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and therefore much easier to work with as it can only go on a certain way, the primary focus being getting the dots on the timing chain sprockets lined up properly.

I believe, with the engine at Top Dead Center on cylinder #1, the dots will be facing each other. That is to say, the do on the cam sprocket will be facing the dot on the crank sprocket.
