SOURCE: where are the timing chain marks ona 2000 pontiac grand am

On a 2.4, there are no timing marks...There are holes in the cam gears that need to be aligned with corresponding holes in the head.
Though it's not terribly difficult to do, it must be done precisely according to instructions or valves will hit the pistons and destroy the engine. You can find instructions for this procedure in haynes and other vehicle service manuals. (too long to write out here).
Remember...this is an exact install...you cannot just get close!!!
Good luck! Post back if you need further specific instructions with any part of the job.

SOURCE: 99 pontiac grand am 2.4 timing chain

Yes, that model is an interference motor. Most of the pontiac grang am's and grand prix's are. Sorry, I'm sure that was the answer you didn't want to hear.

SOURCE: does a 2003 pontiac grand am have a timing belt or

well, there a few ways to look at this. Yes it has a timing chain/belt. Most people replace them when they break, or if there is another reason to have work done in and around the timing cover, such as a gasket leak or, on your car, the hydraulic tensioner adjusted too tight from the factory.

After research, apparently these cars have had reported problems (ecotech 2.2 L4 motor.), but no help from GM.

Manufacturers suggest to change it at a certain interval/mileage, usually 60k.

Replaced water pump on my 2000 grand am timeing is now off how do i set it correctly


The timing is set by the computer. Unless you removed the timing chain during the water pump replacement, there shouldn't have been a change. Check to make sure your wiring is connected tightly and the wires are all plugged in.

Where do i find a diagram of the timing belt and pully for a 2000 grand am on the internet?


your vehicle depending on eng size dosen't have a timing belt, only a chain, so you'll probably have a easier time finding a timing chain diagram and needed pullys. You will need to specify engine i.e. 2.8, or 3.1 or 3.4 or 3.8,... info will be located on sticker under hood typically white with black print rectangular or square shaped

How to and where are witness marks to reinstall timing chain on a 2000 Pontiac Grand AM 2.4


YOU WILL SEE A HOLE IN THE CAM GEAR THAT A 3/8 BOLT WILL FIT INTO. PUT A BOLT INTO THE HOLES OF BOTH CAM GEARS. THEN LINE UP THE CRANK PULLEY KEYWAY AT ABOUT 12 O'CLOCK WITH THE MARK ON THE ENGINE BLOCK.

MAKE SURE TO COMPRESS THE CHAIN TENSIONER AND RELEASE IT WHEN THE CHAIN IS IN POSITION.
