What are simne problems you will have if your timing chain needs to be replaced?

If your timing chain needs to be replaced, your S10 will throw a DTC codes that will indicate an issue with your timing. Most common issue is that, it's not the timing chain, but the worm gear to your distributor.
Gm has issue that the worm gear's were soft and tend to wear out causing the timing to be off. You can not set or check the timing on your Vortec without a Tech2 scanner to check the timing. The PCM self adjust for any timing issues from the inputs from the crank, cam and knock sensor.
If your have issues with your 4.3 vortec, most likely. It's going to be a bad SCPI issues of the injectors being dirty with carbon build or it's gone way to bad to be cleaned and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Died while driving an won't restart

Sounds like the timing chain let go on you. You have fuel, you have fire, nothing really left, but to, get them to meet at the right time. Take the distributor cap off, turn the engine over, and if the rotor don't move, then you will know the chain went. It is possible that the chain could've jumped a tooth or two also, but I'm almost possitive that it broke. I sincerely hope that I could help. Good luck and best wishes.
