Question about Cars & Trucks
TIMING CHAIN REPLACEMENT AND NOW RAN FINE FOR ONE DAY AND THEN MADE FUNNY NOISE ,LOSS POWER AND DIED NOW WONT START BACK UP , JUST SPINS OVER
I would pull the timing cover off and check if anything came loose. Check the tensioner, check timing marks for still being true. Turn the engine a few revolutions by hand to see if all looks good.

Hi Sarah, It would seem to me that either the tensioner or a bolt has come loose on the timing assembly. Unfortunately if something like that happens and the chain jumps, the valves would loose synchronization with the crankshaft and pistons, meaning there could have been collision between them, thereby causing damage to the valves and possibly to the pistons. To solve the problem will mean dismantling and checking the timing mark alignment against the relevant match marks. I am suspecting that you will find that they no longer align and will need realignment. (meaning you'll need to do the previous job over) and when completed carry out a compression test. If after assembly and carrying out that test the compression is very low, the valves will probably have been bent. You will need to remove the cylinder head and carry out rehabilitation. Unfortunately the only way to inspect piston, con-rod and crankshaft damage is a complete dismantling. Regards John

Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)
