I suggest that you visit the autozone.com website and register the car. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to an online repair manual for the car. The info on the timing chain should be available there. It's a handy resource. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Changing the timing chain on my 2004 cavalier, and everything's back in place, cranking by hand, the chain locks up, what am I doing wrong?


It appears that you do not have the timing correct on the camshaft/s and the crankshaft. The intake or exhaust valves are hitting the pistons when you turn the engine over. You need to make sure that the marks are exactly correct. NOW, for the big question,,,,,,, Was the chain broken? Was the engine running when it broke? I have seen this myself and repaired one, This will likely bend 2 exhaust and 2 intake valves. Good luck.

It has a timing chain and a balance shaft chain also. My 2003 Cavalier jumped time about 2 months ago and that is what it had in it.

Does a 2005 cavalier have a timing belt or chain 2.2 and when do I change it?


This 2.2 Liter engine uses a Timing chain, timing chains are never replaced unless the engine is being overhauled, there is no periodic replacement required like a Timing belt. Engines that use chains are much more durable than those that use belts and last longer per dollar spent on maintenance costs. I wish I had a dollar for every ruined engine due to a failed rubber timing belt.

Did you do a compression test on those two cylinders ? Check spark with spark tester ? of course the advance is going to jump around with a missing engine . Timing issue ,jumped time , engine mechnical problem . Testing an not guessing .

2oo2 cavalier timing chain broke need to know how to fix it??


With a new motor most likley. When a timing chains break pistons tend to collide with valves which can punch holes in the pistons or bend/ break valves. Usually at this point it is more economical to replace the engine than to actually fix it.

How to replace a timing chain 2000 chevy cavalier


I am familiar with that vehicle but generally with timing chain replacement, the engine needs full access for pulley and cover removal and in some cases the cylinder head requires removal.
Generally timing chains last so that they only need replacement at engine overhaul and it is not an economic proposition to have to replace a chain unless some relative degree of engine work is also required at that time. 

Engine timing chains generally have a tensioner on them which maintains tension, but some chains can wear significantly and cause timing cover to be "ground away" because of "slop".

If the engine is making the noisy rattle of the timing chain against the cover etc, I would schedule a top overhaul (head, machine, test and valve grind) with the chain replacement dependent on mileage with the degree of action.

Some simple simplex timing chains (type of chain similar to motor bike chain) may be replaced without dismantling the engines but I would expect your chain would be a "duplex" dual sprocket type, these are most common. 
These chains are not generally expensive but replacing them can involve a fair amount of work. 

Good Luck and hope this helps, Others will have different ideas.
