97 chevy cavalier z2.4, my car wont start up. It trys to start it makes that swirling sound. i just had a new water pump put in, tune up, oil change, and radiator plush. No check anything lights are on....


Who did the water pump replacement? Replacing the water pump required the removal of the timing chain. If, during the removal and replacement of the timing chain, the camshaft sprockets were not doweled into place, they would need to be rotated to regain proper timing. If the crankshaft was not properly positioned when this was done, or was rotated too far or in the wrong direction, severe damage to the valves and pistons would have occurred. This would result in no compression and the vehicle not starting. I would pull the plugs and do a compression check before anything else. If the compression test fails, you need to pull the engine apart and prepare for some hefty expense for repairs.

Hi guys I need some help with the drive shaft for a 97 cavalier z22 2.2engine. I decided I was going to change the timing chain this weekend after hearing a noise for some time and came to the...


Timing Chain and Gears REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 2.2L Engine Fig. 1: The timing marks on the sprockets should be in alignment. If not, turn the crankshaft until the marks are aligned 91113p63.jpg
Fig. 2: The timing chain tensioner is retained by a Torx head bolt (1) and a regular hex head bolt (2) 91113p58.jpg
Fig. 3: Unfasten the camshaft sprocket bolt 91113p59.jpg
Fig. 4: Remove the camshaft sprocket and the timing chain at the same time . . . 91113p60.jpg
Fig. 5: . . . then remove the tensioner assembly 91113p61.jpg
Fig. 6: Compress the tensioner spring and insert a cotter pin or nail in the hole provided to hold the tensioner in position 91113p62.jpg
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the front cover as previously detailed.
  3. Place the No. 1 piston at TDC of the compression stroke so that the marks on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets are in alignment (see illustration).
  4. Loosen the timing chain tensioner nut as far as possible without actually removing it.
  5. Remove the camshaft sprocket bolts and remove the sprocket and chain together. If the sprocket does not slide from the camshaft easily, a light blow with a soft mallet at the lower edge of the sprocket will dislodge it.
  6. Using a suitable gear puller, remove the crankshaft sprocket. To install:
  7. Press the crankshaft sprocket back onto the crankshaft.
  8. Install the timing chain over the camshaft sprocket and then around the crankshaft sprocket. Make sure that the marks on the two sprockets are in alignment (see illustration). Lubricate the thrust surface with Molykote® or its equivalent.
  9. Align the dowel in the camshaft with the dowel hole in the sprocket and then install the sprocket onto the camshaft. Use the mounting bolts to draw the sprocket onto the camshaft and then tighten to 66–68 ft. lbs. (91–95 Nm).
  10. Lubricate the timing chain with clean engine oil. Tighten the chain tensioner.
  11. Installation of the remaining components is in the reverse order of removal. Fig. 7: Exploded view of the timing chain and sprockets — 2.2L OHV engine 87953107.gif
