That is an interference engine, which means bent valves, broken pistons,etc, in other words, don't put it off if it's due.

If it snaps, it will push the con-rods thru the engine block, ruin the pistons, break the shims and spacers in the piston bores, .......in other words, you would need a new engine

Replaced timming chain now does want to run correctly bad fumes


It sounds like the timing chain was replaced one tooth off. The only other option if the timing chain is correct would be to adjust the ignition timing. Since the timing chain was replaced I would think it to be the first problem.

My timing chain is bad


As timing chain accumulate mileage, chain stretch, sprockets wear out and set the valves off timing. Most chains go up to 100000 miles or more, but not always. As a rule when there is more than about half inch of play between the gears on a V6 or V8, it is the time for a new timing chain and sprockets.
It is unusual for a timing chain to accumulate 200000miles, but I remember a car, with broken timing chain with only 160000miles on it.
Signs of worn out timing chains are:
Rough idle.
Sluggish performance and poor economy.
Sudden engine performance change including the inability to start the engine.
Intermittent backfire through the intake manifold.
Inconsistent ignition timing or a clattering noise coming from the front of the engine.
It is a good idea to replace the water pump (coolant pump), and the thermostat while replacing the timing chain.
The cost of the replace of timing chain is at least +$1300, but if is to bad, we pull out engine and replace both guides. In this case might cost more.
Please do not be mad with me. I'm a certified dealer, and I'm trying to give you the necessary information to help you to deal with the problem.

Wont start? Have someone get in the car and turn the key to the on position,At this time you need to be back near the gas tank to listen for the electric fuel pump to turn on .Repeat turning key switch on and off a few times to be sure you hear the slight BUZZ sound turning on and off .If you dont hear anything then your fuel pump is bad.Fuel pump and timing chain almost never go bad at the exact same time.Your shop is probably scamming you to replace the timing chain...although mileage wise it should be changed soon.Dont crawl under car ,open gas tank cap and put your ear near opening.
