It has a timing chain. The timing chain which is not a timing belt usually does not get changed because it is much stronger to with stand the engines torgue not like the belt which has to replaced every 50 to 60 thousand miles so timing chains do not have to be replaced unless there is something internally that is giving the chain some problems but usually not in most cases.

The 2001 cavalier definitely has a timing chain on all trims on both the 2.2 and 2.4 liter engines. Hope this helps.

How can I tell if my timing belt broke on a 2001 pt cruiser lights and radio work new battery 2 weeks ago


Your car has an interference engine, which means if the timing belt is broken, the pistons will strike the valves. If your engine turns over and there is no noise of internal metal-to-metal contact, your timing belt is not broken. If your engine does not turn over, and you suspect the timing belt may be broken, remove the valve cover and SLOWLY rotate the crankshaft a few degrees by hand, watching if the camshaft rotates. If the camshaft rotates, the timing belt is not broken.
You provided no information on why you think the timing belt may be broken, although you refer to having good electrical power. Does the starter engage? If not, it has nothing to do with the timing belt. Does the starter engage but the engine doesn't start? If so, timing is way down on the list of things to check. After checking spark, fuel delivery, compression, etc.

Replaced fuel pump now timing chain is broken. is that normal?


Sounds like bad luck...changing the fuel pump will have not have an adverse effect on the timing chain. Although timing chains are are way more reliable than timing belts, they still do break. Scott
