Change timing chain on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier thank the chain jump time how can I get it back on time


I am assuming that you have the 2.2L OHV engine (most do). If you have a timing chain problem, you may want to think about this....this engine is prone to timing chain tensioner breakage. This causes the timing chain to jump out of time. This will often cause the pistons to slam into the valves in the aluminum head, causing valve damage. If you decide to replace the timing set, insure that you get the chain, both gears, and a new tensioner. Install them and set the timing back to correct specs. THEN, perform a compression check of all cylinders BEFORE attempting to start the car. If there is uneven compression, you will need to pull the cylinder head and have it repaired or replaced before you can operate the vehicle. This is a tricky job. Aluminum heads are easy to warp and/or crack. You will need to replace all the cylinder head bolts when you replace the head as they are special bolts that are designed for one-time use as they have a stretch factor built into them. Remember to use thread sealant on those head bolts that extend into the water jacket or you will have coolant leakage. And most, important, USE A TORQUE WRENCH that is in good working order when tightening the head bolts. Be SURE to follow the correct pattern and torque settings or you will have problems.

Should the timing chain come off when replacing the heads ?


whenever working on an engine with overhead cams, the timing chain will be removed when replacing heads ,then reinstalled when heads are installed and timing must be performed to insyre engine runs properly or you might run into some seriuos engine damage.now if the chain came off after engine was reassembled then i would believe something was not tightened or chain was not checked for damege or wear when it was off.

Should the timing chain come off when replacing the heads on a 2002 trailblazer?


Absolutely not. Timing chain is not connected to the heads on a Trailblazer.

What if i replace my headgaskets and replaced my timing chains and resurfaces the heads want could make the my 2001 madza mpv minivan not start


It may be any number of things, but here's just a few:

1) Cam shaft position sensor incorrectly fitted or wiring faulty.
2) Compression incorrect due to over-skimming of the head.
3) Incorrect timing chain placement and/or faulty valve timing.

Ford Focus - 12 years old, broke timing belt. The garage is saying I need a complete new cylinder head. I suspected it was the timing belt and expected several bent valves at worst. My question is...


Here at my repair shop have never had to replace a cylinder head, due to timing belt failure, just replace bent valve's and machine head.
