No thats not true
there is a way to change the chain with out all the work.
there is a tool and you have to connect the new chain to the old and turn the engine over until the new chain is wrapped up and back through.
then you just connect the chain back together at the end.
its that simple with the chain install tool.
it keeps all the links a wheel teeth in the same order without disturbing the timing.
if the timing has been disturbed then the whool front of the engine and the car needs to come off.
the radiator support braket comes off in the center opening the whool front end to service the engine block.
you will not need to remove the engine to service the timing chain tensioner and or chain if it has jumped timing or the incorrect service has been performed disturbing the timing.
the ac condesor and the rad fans and the rad all need to bee removed to gain access to the front engine block.allways be very careful when doing service on these cars and never force nothing.all so before you try to turn the belt adjuster screw you must allways release the tensioner bolt in the center or you will i promise distroy the belt tensioner.

hope this helps

19981500 silverado code p1345,i am being told this means i need a new timing chain is this correct


if the distributor is tight no slop in shaft movement up and down ok side to side tight then you need to check dist calabration its actually a cam sensor in the distributor if you hook up a scan tool to it and look at the cam position it will show how far its out it should be -2 or 0 at 1000 rpms you can adjust some by turning the base of the distributor if the timmig chain gets to sloppy you wont get to the correct specs. hope this helps

I have a 2003 gmc envoy and was told the camshaft sensor was bad due to the timing chain starting to go out. The shop has quoted me $1700 to fix the timing chain. This vehicle books out at $5300 and I am...


there is no EASY way. I would suspect the cam position sensor, cam actuator or cam phaser first. what is the trouble code number? A shop should be able to actuate the phaser to see if its working or not. The cam phaser actuator can clog with sludge or debris, check and clean the screen. its at the passenger side of the head, you may have to take the PS pump to remove it. Be sure you are using 5W30 motor oil.

Need to know timing chain installation on 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara


Go to Auto Zone and get a repare manual to see how it is installed. Chances are, if that timing chain broke, the crank could've kept spinning, making the pistons hit the valves then bending them. This would happen if your engine is an interfearance-motor, an interfearance-motor is were the valves are really close to the pistons, this is done so the motor gets more horse-power. The timing chain keeps the cam and the crank shaft in time with eachother so the pistons don't hit the valves. Alot of compact cars and import cars and trucks of the 90s and up have these kind of motors in them. Therefore, you may have to get a valve job done by taking the heads off and bringing them in to some kind of repair shop.

Transfer case problem and average replacement cost?


You can remove the transfer case ,strip it down and reassemble it,making any parts swaps,you may need. I owned a trans shop and would never install someone elses unit in mine. Repair yours, only if necessary. I would check out everything, I could,for as long as it takes,before I would pull it. Not much but a stretched chain would cause a noise. I will guarrantee you ,you will be given a used unit, with absolutely now internal inspection at all. Just a heads up,remember what I'am telling you,so you don't get bit,

Merces benz c230 timing chain replacement procedure


so it takes some Pin pullers, or a litlte bit of messing around witth proper sized (heavy duty) bolt to pull the pins, i cannot seem to find the timing marks on mine once i got it offand want to put back on, i have a chilton and it doesnt help. if you buy the 100 -200 dolar shop manual from bentley it would probably be quite simple :)

pull, pins, timing cover, water pump, solenoid, etc. to get to timing cover, uppe and lower,pull valve cover, and loosen cam (exhaust side) to get chain off. :)

Won't start,was told timing chain was broken but not sure


I HAVE THE SAME CAR! ...and same problem.... After 4 days of jerking around.... I found the problem...
1) pull off the distributor cap... --- hang it AWAY from the distributor
2) get in the car and KICK IT OVER....
3) If the distributor base does not turn, you have a bad timing belt
(NOT A PROBLEM, cause it is a non-interference motor -- CONSIDER YOURself lucky!)
4) if it does turn, most likely it is the IGNITOR (or ignition control module) -- $90 at Checkers....

GOD BLESS ....
