98 isuzu hambre 2.2 how to tell if timing chain is broke

The Isuzu, S10, is better name,...the wiki , is scary if read on this car.
sure the cam stops turning, and engine dies.
the GM 2.2L engine is OHV, chain,
the Suzuki 2.2L DOHC is belt drive !!! not chain.
The engine lost all spark can be cam dead.
remove the CMP cam sensor crank engine see it dead?
wont turn or is jumping oddly>? (slack chain)

the online FSM shows this as GM engine,
lost spark works like this.
if sparks gone.
the CMP and CKP sensors feed the PCm
the PCM then fires the ICM driver ignitors
to 2 coils
2 wasted spark coils.
do not mix the 4 HV wires or engine will not run
the firing order is PCM hard coded
to 1,3,4,2.
but fires them in PAIRS, called wasted spark.

short answer
engine will not start but cranks
spark gone all 4
spark timing all wrong (a timing light sees this easy)
look at cam, see it not turn
look at cam ,see it acts odd, jumping crazy.

Pickup issue

Hi, if I can help I will, The timing chain has most likely broke.If this model is a interference engine,then it may have bent some valves.First thing to check would be to see if the cam is turning.May be the valve cover has a oil cap ,if so,take oil cap off and see if the rocker arms are moving when you turn the engine over.If not you may have to take the valve cover off to see.If I can help you with anything else let me

Isuzu Hombre pickup, 2.2L Vortec, Won't Start.

You need four things for an engine to run. 1. fuel 2. spark 3. compression 4. timing (spark at the right time. By your post it seems you have fuel and spark and you probably have compression unless you blew a head gasket. That leaves the timing. Check the timing and/or the timing belt or chain whichever you have.

Excessive throttle pressure can cause this. Input to the trans is controlled by the computer, but influenced by speed sensors and throttle position sensors. It could be in the valve body as well so you will want to get someone with proper equipment to check it. If you get an expensive estimate, get a second opinion.
