Chains are not like belts.... they are much tougher therefore last a hell of a lot longer...typically around 90,000 miles or more they should be looked at as they do eventually stretch and can jump time...they also have tensioners that can wear out causing the chain to jump a tooth, and a tell tale sign of this wear is indicated by noise coming from the timing chain case area.I have seen some 3.8 v/6 engines one in particular manufactured by Buick/Olds and installed in early CJ 5 Jeeps lasting over 200,000 miles...but sounding like a washing machine at idle from all the worn parts as well as some having a fiber type cam sprocket that wears out(used to help silence any gear slap noise)Hope this somewhat helps.

Will a jumped timing chain on 1999 chevy lumina 3.1L give no pressure readings on cylinders 4&6 and 220psi on cylinder 2


It's possible, But wouldn't have much pressure on #2. Most likely a blown gasket between #4 and #6. Pull both plugs, put the gauge in one. If the other blows out fast and hard, The gasket is gone.

How do I replace the timing chain and gears on my 97 chevy lumina, engine is 3.1L.


Remove the balancer, alternator, P/S pump and belt tensioner. Remove the front cover and then the chain. If the chain has jumped, the 3.1 is an interference motor.

'97 Chevy Blazer LS. 77 K miles. At what mileage is the suggested timing belt change for these models or is it change them when they break?


Chevy blazers dont have timing belts they have chains. The chains get noisey on some engines that are run hard or the oil changes are missed. Sometimes these engines live their whole life if not run too hard without changing the chain. Noise lower gas mileage uneven idel hesate to accerate. These are all things that happen over 100 thou miles. Many go way farther with no problems
