Change timing chain on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier thank the chain jump time how can I get it back on time


I am assuming that you have the 2.2L OHV engine (most do). If you have a timing chain problem, you may want to think about this....this engine is prone to timing chain tensioner breakage. This causes the timing chain to jump out of time. This will often cause the pistons to slam into the valves in the aluminum head, causing valve damage. If you decide to replace the timing set, insure that you get the chain, both gears, and a new tensioner. Install them and set the timing back to correct specs. THEN, perform a compression check of all cylinders BEFORE attempting to start the car. If there is uneven compression, you will need to pull the cylinder head and have it repaired or replaced before you can operate the vehicle. This is a tricky job. Aluminum heads are easy to warp and/or crack. You will need to replace all the cylinder head bolts when you replace the head as they are special bolts that are designed for one-time use as they have a stretch factor built into them. Remember to use thread sealant on those head bolts that extend into the water jacket or you will have coolant leakage. And most, important, USE A TORQUE WRENCH that is in good working order when tightening the head bolts. Be SURE to follow the correct pattern and torque settings or you will have problems.

1997 chevy cavalier no compression in #3 cylinder and wont start


What probably happened is that the timing chain jumped time (common problem) and bent a valve in the #3 cylinder. This will cause the no-start, no-compression issue you state. You will need to repair the timing chain/gears/tensioner and have the head removed and repaired in order to get the car back to operating order.

How do I replace water pump and timing chain on 2.4 4 cylinder Chevy Cavilier


If You Only need to replace water pump, you need a special tool to hold water pump sprocket in place while changing the pump, Just look up GM 2.2 Water pump tool on e-bay, or ask a local auto parts store if they rent one out. Garages make out like a bandit to replace these water pumps, because you need this special tool to do the job, and ti is impossible to do it without . Good Luck

I have a `994 chevy 2.2l engin. the timing chain broke. put new chain on lined marks up. eng. is missing on 3and 4 cylinder


Have you checked compression in those cylinders? I would bet they are low and the probably cause is bent valves from the broken timing chain.
