SOURCE: when to replace timing chain

Normally you don't have to replace the timing chain unless it develops excessive slack in it. They aren't like timing belts that are recommended to be changed at different intervals depending upon the manufacturer. If your milage isn't excessive then you should be fine. If the car has high miles you can have it checked to see if it has too much slack in it. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: What do you mean by high mileage on a 2003 chevy

Here is the scoop
Went to another web page, says the 2.2 and the 2.4 are non-interference systems.
So when the chain jumps, the car will stop, but you will not damge the valves.
So drive it till it stops, then change it, it's a big job that you may never have to do.

Does a 2003 cavalier have timing belt or chain?


Most overhead valve engines have a belt. You need to get your engine size, make, model and year and call your local parts house and they can tell you this for sure.

I am looking for the markings for a timing...chain...i just did a head replacement....and i realize now..that there are no markings on the timing chain........it has washed off...it's a 2003 chevy cavalier...


Man, that's a hard one for me, but what I would try, is go to an auto part, see if they would let you see one, so you can mark yours, I'am sure they will let you, good luck, sorry could not help much, just an idea.

When to replace timing chain on 2003 cavalier


Hi there, you wont have to replace you timing chain unless your cavalier has very high miles or if it is ratteling. There is no set timing chain replacement interval. Chains are supposed to last the life of the engine. Hope this answers your question. Cheers Ben
