98 isuzu hambre 2.2 how to tell if timing chain is broke

The Isuzu, S10, is better name,...the wiki , is scary if read on this car.
sure the cam stops turning, and engine dies.
the GM 2.2L engine is OHV, chain,
the Suzuki 2.2L DOHC is belt drive !!! not chain.
The engine lost all spark can be cam dead.
remove the CMP cam sensor crank engine see it dead?
wont turn or is jumping oddly>? (slack chain)

the online FSM shows this as GM engine,
lost spark works like this.
if sparks gone.
the CMP and CKP sensors feed the PCm
the PCM then fires the ICM driver ignitors
to 2 coils
2 wasted spark coils.
do not mix the 4 HV wires or engine will not run
the firing order is PCM hard coded
to 1,3,4,2.
but fires them in PAIRS, called wasted spark.

short answer
engine will not start but cranks
spark gone all 4
spark timing all wrong (a timing light sees this easy)
look at cam, see it not turn
look at cam ,see it acts odd, jumping crazy.

Does a 97 Isuzu Hombre have an interference Engine?

great question but guess what, you failed to say what engine?
in usa? if not what country?
gas engine or diesel.?
some USA engines in this car are GM 4.3. Vortec
the GM L35 or GM LF6 engines, both are V6
if in USA, the VIN number tells you what engine is really there.
better is the EPA underhood sticker shows real engine name,
if GM it uses the 3 digit GM name for engine.
with that fact we can google and find out what it is.

Does my 98 Rodeo have a timing belt or a timing chain?

You are definitely due for a timing belt if you havent done so.
Shop prices vary a lot, so I hope you have someone you trust....non the less, your 98 rodeo has a timing belt...and it is good money spent, to also replace your waterpump and tensioner too.
All of the parts can be purchased for about $125, and often the entire job can be taken care of in a shop for about $200 labor, but I would shop around a bit...

Broke timing chain replaced it now it will not start and has no c

if you are sure the chain was installed correctly then you have bent valves, my bet is on the chain install.

Is the motor on a 98 explorer restricted?

If the engine was running and it broke this may be disastrous and you will need to split down and rebuild the engine.

Broken Timing Chain 83 Olds 88

As soon as the timing chain broke, your engine would have died. The engine won't be hurt.
