How do I replace a timing chain in an 1997 chevy caviller


Hi there,

Generally, in "chain" driven engines, it is not neccessary to change the timing chain unless it is seriously stretched or broken (only timing/cam "belts" require interval changing).

However, if you are experiencing the symptom of chain "rattle", then I would first reccommend you change to the correct grade of engine oil, then secondly, change the chain "tensioner".

I have a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier. Does it have a timing belt or a timing chain? At what milage should I change the timing belt/timing chain? Thank you.


It has a timing chain. The timing chain which is not a timing belt usually does not get changed because it is much stronger to with stand the engines torgue not like the belt which has to replaced every 50 to 60 thousand miles so timing chains do not have to be replaced unless there is something internally that is giving the chain some problems but usually not in most cases.

Check the coolent in the 97 cavalier it takes the orange coolent not the green stuff. If you do have green coolent in it you will have to flush the radiator a few times before adding the new coolent.

When to replace timing chain on 2003 cavalier


Hi there, you wont have to replace you timing chain unless your cavalier has very high miles or if it is ratteling. There is no set timing chain replacement interval. Chains are supposed to last the life of the engine. Hope this answers your question. Cheers Ben

1997 Chevy Cavalier is backfiring and sputtering sometimes on take off or acceleration. Any ideas what the problem is? New fuel regulator, all new injectors, done alot to this car.


Here is a list of some things that can cause it,
Emmissions system not functioning properly,
Faulty secondary ignition system
Fuel injection system in need of adjustment
Vaccum leak at fuel injectors, around intake manifold, or vaccum hoses
Clogged fuel filter
Weak fuel pump
To test for a vaccum leak, get a can of starting fluid, with the engine running, spray around the intake manifold, the vaccum hoses, connections and fittings, where ever you spray and the engine rev's up a little, you found a leak.

Will a timing chain/belt cause your car to stall out when driving it and not allow it to start up after it stalls?


I had a timing chain problem, It made a noise for about 3 years and it decided to break last May, the engine just totally stopped. My 99 cavalier had 164,000 miles on it. My friend and I found out the the cavalier 2.2 eng. has a non interfer timing chain. so when my timing chain broke it didn't cause any damage.

When di I need to change a timing belt with 120K


Now. i think the interval is 75 to 80 miles for belts. double check that it doesn't have a timing chain. if it has the 2.4 ltr eng than you have timing chain and around 120k is fine.
