Our 3.1L v6 191 CI Chevy Engine is completly tore down, and we can't do anything else untill the timing chain is off, is there a certain way we have to do that? will it screw up everything if we just take it off? What can I do to get it off safe?

You need align the marks on both the upper and lower sprocket dead center. Turn the crank until the #1 cylinder is at the top and watch the sprockets, they have a small mark on them, either a small arrow head mark or a dot. They will line up when at Top Dead Center. Remove the sprockets and chain, and replace them exactly as they came off.

Well theres no easy way but the tick marks HAVE to be set to top dead center with cylinder 1. Guess wondering since the oil pump sits in the oil pan why you tore the timing chain off? Assume you were over hauling the chain since it had high miles. All I can say if it was at top dead b4 you started cant think anything you could done for it not to go back to top center. Just keep trying walk away from it when you get really ticked off. Had a GM done that on me took 3 days going at it back and forth but i finally got it to line up to #1

Timing chain guide broke on a 2007 Chevy malibu Eco tech engine 4cylinder. I've had the head reworked, new timing chain kit, head bolts, etc. I just got the head on and set the timing. Now here's my...


First, are you rotating in the correct direction? Second, remember, timing chain tension is held tight by oil pressure on the rear timing chain guide. If the engine is not running, there is nothing there to keep it tight.

Should the timing chain come off when replacing the heads ?


whenever working on an engine with overhead cams, the timing chain will be removed when replacing heads ,then reinstalled when heads are installed and timing must be performed to insyre engine runs properly or you might run into some seriuos engine damage.now if the chain came off after engine was reassembled then i would believe something was not tightened or chain was not checked for damege or wear when it was off.

Pick up a copy of a Haynes manual at your auto parts store. They are pretty good especially if there are tricks to watch for.
They cost about $20. Hope this helps.

Some tune up questions and trouble shooting a running issue.


Actually.....the 5.0 in the 92 Olds Custom Cruiser is a 307 CI 5.0 L engine believe it or not....The Caprice had a 305 CI 5.0 L engine. There is very little difference, but I have one as well and I found that out through the local dealer. The pulsation you feel when driving sounds like a transmission problem to me, but I think it could be from the timing chain issue. I do not know the timing setting for the car, but maybe this will help you to find it. I would try to make sure which motor you actually have first, the 305 or the 307, and then ask the mechanic at the local dealer what the setting should be.

your car does not have a timing belt it has a chain. but yes if the pump is driven by timing belt and it starts leaking the coolant gets on belt and it will fail. if your car has the 2.4 engine the water pump runs off of the timing chain and depending on mileage it would be smart to go ahead and replace it since it will be tore down anyway will save on labor

That engine does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and therefore much easier to work with as it can only go on a certain way, the primary focus being getting the dots on the timing chain sprockets lined up properly.

I believe, with the engine at Top Dead Center on cylinder #1, the dots will be facing each other. That is to say, the do on the cam sprocket will be facing the dot on the crank sprocket.
