1996 pontiac 2.2 not overhead cam turns over and will hit but no power changed throttle pos sensor and coil packs spark plugs cranck sensor still wont start when it quit heard a little clank noise on...


I would start by checking the compression of the cylinders. If one or more is low than the timing chain has probably jumped and there is a possibility of bent valves.

Yes timing is everything with motors if the cylinder isn't firing at the right time all u are doing is filling the cylinder with raw fuel and dumping it into exhaust un burned it can eventually ruin you're catalytic converters also, get it professionally timed you're truck will run like a champ, unles u already caused damage.

1999 mountaineer timing chain snapped i want to know is it worth fixing or better to replace whole motor i have a decent price for a used motor


YOU CAN REPLACE THE TIMING CHAIN AND GEARS, OR CHANGE ENGINES! CHECK THE PRICE OF THE TIMING CHAIN AND GEARS, AND GASKETS! THEN COMPARE TO COST TO CHANGING THE ENGINE!

Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.
