Did you have a repair manual for your specific vehicle prior, during and after this repair ?
Some vehicles have a special tool that hold the cam sprockets in place while replacing the chain

What can cause the timing chain to jump time on an 05 ford explorer

The 4.0l sohc v6 is notorious for breaking the plastic chain guides. You will need t remove the engine to repair it properly and there are lots of special tools required to properly time the vehicle. There are actually 4 timing chains and I suggest replacing all 4 and their respective guides and tensioners.

Timing chain

It depends on the type of vehicle you have. My family is planning on doing replacing the timing chain on a Toyota 4Runner. It will be a major job-the head and the oil pan must come off for a 4Runner. You need to check out the procedure for your vehicle. I access Chilton's manual online through my local library.

Timing chain was replaced but the mechanic states my valves are come he didn't detect this problem from the start of the job?

most likely he put the chain on wrong in respect to the timing and bounced a valve on top of a piston and bent them .Why were you replacing the chain as they never wear out ,the adjuster maybe but a whole new chain?? that runs in oil and should last the life of the vehicle and a bit longer .

When the timing chain breaks does it usually damage anything else or will replacing the timing chain and gears take care of the problem?

When the timing chain breaks the cam quits turning. Any valves that are open, remain open.
If the motor is turned over trying to start it or bump starting it in gear, the pistons come up and
hit the open valves. Bent valves are common. If it is a 4 cylinder only a couple valves will be open
at a time so you may damage 2 or 4 (there are usually 2 per cylinder so a 4 cylinder has 8).
You could replace the chain, make sure the timing marks align with eahother and the chain but
just getting the cam and crankshaft to alignment could cause some damage. Good luck. I did
it to mine once. Bent 4 of the 8 and had to pull the head, sent to the machine shop and reassemble.
I tried to bump start mine down a 2 mile hill. Ohh well! It's fixable.

Location of water pump

These vehicles have the water pump running off the timing belt or chain, whether you're talking about the 3.5L, 3.3L, or the 2.7L v6's, be very careful with these engines because they are sensitive! I would reccomend also replacing the timing belt or chain carefully. Good luck.

My 2006 Toyota Rav4 it has 70,000 miles on it. I look in the owner maintenance manual and it doesn't say anything about replace timing belt at 60,000 miles like many others. Does this vehicle use timing...

Hello. Welcome to FixYa.
Please allow us to assist you.

We have good news for you.

Your vehicle does not have a timing belt. Your vehicle has a timing chain; there is no suggested replacement interval for the newer engines with timing chains.

There is no need to concern yourself with the expense of replacing the timing chain, as it will never need replaced.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Car stalled while stopped. The camshafts are not turning when you crank the enigine over but the crankshaft does?

The timing chain and/or belt has broken. Try replacing it. This may or may not be able to be performed at home. We would need more information about the vehicle to tell you how to repair. eg: Vehicle make-model-year-motor size. Thanks for asking!

Does the 2000 Ford explorer have a timing Chain or belt? and what mileage do you replace?

It's a timing chain... They will probably last for as long as the vehicle does (175k-200k miles depending on upkeep and willingness to keep the dog alive). That said, if there's a reason to have the timing chain cover off an engine over 100k... I'm the type that would go ahead and replace the timing chain while it's in front of you if you plan on having the vehicle for more than a year or so.

If you have the engine pulled for any reason over 100k, then that's another time that I'd be replacing the timing chain and the oil pump while I'm at it...

1995 GMC safari V6 When does the timing belt need replacing

sorry i didnt see the TIMING belt in the title -
GMC recommends replacing Timing belt at 71,000 miles....
however your particular vehicle may have a timing CHAIN.

The 4.3L engine is the only engine covered by this guide which uses a timing chain and gear (sprocket) assembly to turn the camshaft. The 2.5L engine uses a direct gear drive (without a chain).

Only replace the chain if after inspecting it - it is worn or damaged!
You don't adjust timing chain-you replace it or the tensioner

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for taking the time to answer your FREE question.
