    talking to the guys working on it they said yes it did jump time and they do not know if it is lined up right between cam and crank gears. and also what to do from there. They are getting ready to also do a compression check on it. thanks for all the help

  • angiebaby075 Jan 31, 2009

    Thanks you have all been very helpfull, They are doing a compression check, they want to know if the check comes back negitive with no compression, does this indicate a bent valve?

  • angiebaby075 Jan 31, 2009

    they did replace the timing chain and gears after it jumped time, they are doing compression check now. I hope we get good news with that

Hi Angiebaby,
It seems the timming chain gave away!...you may have probabely been hearing it kinda grind before it snaped!
I am just guiding you the basics of going about it as am not fully conversant with 2001 olmobile alero, as we dont have Amercan Cars in our country, but the engines works in the same principles.
You have to identify as to how to get about to the timming chain inside the engine.
Do you have its workshop manual?
Well simply, all you have to do is to remove the crankshaft pulley, the water pump, the alternator needs to be losen to get the belt/belts out of the way and the alternator can be swang aside.
You will have to remove the top cover or the valve cover on the cylinder head, there you will thn come to the rokers and the tappets...check them for any damage to the valves as when the timming-chain snaped , the pistons in any one or two cylnders mayhve hit the valves thus bending them.
If all is well , all you have to do is remove the broken timming chain and its adjuster and guide...i.e. if the chain hasn't fallen into the sump.
If it has thn theres an additional job of pulling out the sump.
On replacing the timming chain its wise to check the sprokets or rather the timming geras both on the crankshaft and the camshaft for any wear!
its better you get an Overhaul gasket set too...just incase.
If the valves are damaged then you will have to bring down the cylinder head and replace the damaged valves and its guides and reaching to there you may as well do the top overhauls i.e. valve seat exming and valve lapping too.
GOOD -LUCK!

    there is a mark on crank gear that will line up in between two gears on cam gear it won't hert to move either one to get them to line up.

  • ccn7 Jan 31, 2009

    if it jumped time and they did not put a new chain and gear in, it may not show any compression. because everything is out of sink. yes it could have bent some valves and it won't have any compression if thats the case.

    Let me know good or bad.

My front passenger door of my 2001 oldmobile alero was racked how do i remove it to replace it


Open the door. Locate the hinges when the door meets the frame. Unbolt the hinges from the frame. Set the new door in place and install the bolts in the hinges, but just lightly snug them. Adjust the door up or down as necessary to get the door latch to line up with the post on the frame. Once everything is aligned correctly, tighten the hinge bolts securely, and you are done.

2001 old alero turns over will not start


Hello;
Are you getting fuel? When you turn the ignition switch to on , does the pump energize? If not make sure the relay is ok. If you have fuel, make certain the timing is exactly correct. Go back through the steps if you are not sure it is right. Also make sure all your sensors are hooked up and working. Hope this helps. Rate me high, please. I can be requested as well if you need further assistance.
Thanks;
