Don't concern yourself with thinking you may have a bent valve or any other destruction inside. Just replace the timing chain and go on with your life. I've been thru timing chains also, nothing else ever happened. And I know these 22re's inside out, for the past 20 years or better. You just can't destroy them. One I just took of the road for frame repair has over 500,000 miles on it. Replace front main seal and sleeve twice. Anyway, if you've never replaced a 22r chain, get a Hanes manual at any Pep Boys auto parts outlet to find out how to do it. Just be sure to follow the instructions explicitly. You don't want the timing off evn a single tooth.

Front wipers arms going extreamly slow and you can hear the wiper motor maybe a fuse ?

the wiper motor could be the problem. could also be the mechanism
needs a lube or replacing. also, lift the wiper arms off the glass so they stand up then switch on wipers. if goes right , the motor is being overloaded. if still slow, the motor needs replacing.

Wipers stopped working, not a fuse

Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.

2007 pontiac grand prix rear passenger window will not go up. all other windows work fine

There is a high possibility that that there is either just an obstruction in the way or the motor has failed you or the motor is spinning out and the gear alignment is off. For any of these possible issues, you WILL have to go to a mechanic and there is nothing you can do on your own.

However, since you asked the question I'll try to tell you what I think. If there is an obstruction in the way, the motor will try to spin but cannot so it will be on high load and start to whine. The motor shouldn't be busted because you can hear it. More likely what's connecting the motor to what pushes the window up has come lose. Contact a mechanic if you want to fix this issue.

Timing chain broke, possible damage to heads

Has the timing chain or belt been replaced?? If not you can't check it unless you remove the head(s). If you did bend the valves it is doubtful the engine is destroyed other than needing new valves installed for the bent ones. So the cost would be about $800.00 more if a V6

2006 Chrysler Town and Country passenger seat won't move front to back right track seems to be jammed

I have exactly the same problem, and I'm searching for a solution. I think there's just one motor for forward-backward, and mine seems to be operating, because the left (inboard) track moves. The motor seems to have two cables that turn in a shaft from the motor... both of my cables seem to be turning. I think the problem is at the end of the shaft or the track is sticking... I can't move it by hand. Wish I could contact you directly.

Timing chain broke on my 96 cavalier 2.2 ohv. Replaced the chain and tensioner but now the car runs rough necause of a miss n the car. The motor had to be hoisted up in order to change the timing chain im...

If the chain broke while the engine was running, and I presume it did, it is possible that you may have damaged the valves. When the chain breaks the cam shaft stops moving and the valves stay in their last position. The pistons continue to move until the engine comes to a stop. An open valve can be hit by a piston, sometimes breaking the valve or just bending the shaft. Also you have to be sure the new chain has the cam shaft and crank shaft properly timed. As I understand that that engine does not have timing marks on the chain sprockets. To test for damaged valves, remove the spark plugs and test the compression in each cylinder by cranking the engine while holding the compression gage in the spark plug hole. All the cylinder should have the same pressure within about 15 psi. A cylinder with damaged valves will not have any compression pressure. If you are unsure about the valve timing check into how that engine is timed. I don't have that information but if is out of time it has a very major effect on the engine performance and idle. I hope this gives you a place to start looking for the cause of the mis. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
