How to tell if the timing chain jumped in a 89 Cavalier Z24 2.8 V 6?

Chains don't jump very often. IF it did then it would be enough to not allow the engine to run. The issue is most likely a worn chain or gears. This will result in back fire, hard to start and sluggish behavior.

Fault code P2106

is it the ecotec engine fitted 1.8 or 2.0./2.2l or the diesel 1.7 engine.. how long have you not used the air con for. not using it for a long time you can damage the pump the flown sensor. even the temperature sensor. but if the engine is trying to stall with the ac on then the pump may have a fault. ac should be run for 10min once a week no matter the weather. stops you having problems later.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier, 1st problem when stopped at a red light with a/c on the temp. goes up and a/c starts to blow warm air and car runs sluggish. Like it wants to stall. When driving everything...

first problem is simply your radiator cooling fans (there tow of them) are not working my be due to a fuse and/or relay those fans are turning with ac on even if your car is cold and turns when radiator gots hot even if ac is off
so when your car is hot open the hood and just take a look are they running or not they just in front of radiator
