Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
Bought the car, driving it home, it died in the snow storm. Towed to garage, telling me it jumped time and damaged possibly 2 valves. they pulled the plugs, nasty and sludgy. No blue smoke when I tried it out before buying though. Checked compression, none at all in 1, tiny bit in 1, normal in other two. Going to have head taken apart Sat. What do I need to look for? It turns over. I have spark, just won't start. Could it be as simple as replacing 2 valves, setting time, new plugs and resetting theft?
If it is a 2.2 yes. Start with pulling of the timing cover and checking the timing chain. It doesn't take long to get off.
