SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: chain broke

If the engine is running ok, leave it be. If you plan on keeping the vehicle for a long time and no ther issues exist with the performance, you may want to replace the chain, but you'll have to replace other parts as well. Cam shaft gear, crankshaft gear and chain should be replaced at the same time, gaskets, front seal, oil pan gaskets to name a few. Its a big job. I don't know the history of your engine, but I'm sure other parts will need replacing before the chain. Just a thought.

SOURCE: how to set timing chain and sprokets on 1997 chevy

Line up the hole in the cam sprocket with the mark on the crank. if your facing the motor front, the keyway will be on your right, with the hole another 90 degrees around. I recommend using a ruler to create a line from the center of the crank hole to the top of the cam sprocket.

Timing on a chevy venture were the belt at


Chevy Venture has a timing chain, not a belt. It is a very involved job to replace. If you have never done a timing chain before you may want to consider having it done proffesionally.

How do I replace a timing chain in an 1997 chevy caviller


Hi there,

Generally, in "chain" driven engines, it is not neccessary to change the timing chain unless it is seriously stretched or broken (only timing/cam "belts" require interval changing).

However, if you are experiencing the symptom of chain "rattle", then I would first reccommend you change to the correct grade of engine oil, then secondly, change the chain "tensioner".
