If it is an interferrance engine the valves and pistons will clash and do severe damage. If a chain is bad, the starter will spin the engine very fast because there is less compression.

Chang timing chain on a 2002 chevy blazer 4.3 v6 engine


Are you saying that after changing the chain is it doing this? If so, you probably have the crankshaft 180 degrees out of sync with the cam. If not, the chain tensioner may have broken and the chain jumped time.

1990 Chevy s10 won't start, have replaced plugs, wires, timing chain, fuel pump,distributor, starting fluid nothing helps


Have you checked for a broken timing chain, that would be the next step. Make sure number one cylinder is up on compression stroke when the timing mark is on 0 degrees BTDC on the crank pulley. Pull the plug and feel the pressure as it nears TDC.

2001 saturn l200 will not start even though starter turns engine over.will the engine sound different during turnover if the timing chain is broken?


if the timing chain is broken it will sound different like there is no compression also this is an interference engine i think meaning the valves will hit the pistons if the timing is not correct,like in a broken chain or belt.you should check to see if you have spark at the plugs and if the motor is getting fuel.if not then each system will have to be checked out depending which is not working.

Driveing along and engine quit running. tried to start but would not. keep cranking and fuel came out of airfilter.


I hate to give bad news, I have forgotten when Chevy started putting Coil packs on that particular vehicle. If it has a Distributor pull the distributor cap and crank the motor over while you are watching the rotor assembly. If it doesn't turn the Timing Chain Broke. If it has a coil pack, pull one of the Valve Covers and crank the motor while watching the valves. If the valves don't cycle the the Timing chain is broken. Now, assuming the timing chain hasn't broken then you need to check the fuel pump.

The motor turns over but will not start. It is getting fire and gas.


this leads to either a timing belt or timing chain,depending on if the engine has been replaced.you did'nt specify what engine so i will give you my diagnostic. either a timing belts broken,or a timing chains broken.if you have fuel,and you have fire,at the same time, the engine has to be out of time. so sometings slipped,more than likely,a belt,timing.

I have an 1995 f150 4.9 4x4. It will not start. it will just keep cranking and cranking. I have spark, I have tried starting fluid and still will not start. I do not know what to check next ????


timings off or timing belt broken slipped remove oil cap try and see if valves are moving.Try removing a couple plugs spray in some gas/starting fluid and replace plugs kinda quickly and attempt to start should fire. if it does exhaust valves are dumping fuel before compression stoke timing issue

Rattle in front of engine when running. Was told may be timing chain? 160,000+ miles no service history


I had a nasty 'rattle' in the front of my engine on an older truck of mine (around 190,000 miles) and it was the timing chain. The guide for the chain had broken and caused my timing chain to rub against the front cover and start eating it's way out (the rattle). Got it fixed, new chain and replaced the front cover as well and everything is fine. Good luck, I hope this helps.

'94 Nissan Altima rattles


Hi there,
you will need new upper timing chain and sprockets. Common problem on altima your year. Nissan has TSB for it. First they had us remove the upper timing chain guide, but after that, they had us replace all top chain components.
