I have a 1989 Chevy Cavalier Z24 2.8 motor how to tell if the timing chain slipped?


If it has a timing chain and its slipped then there will be all sorts of trouble. It may not run, there will be lots of noise and basically you are in for a major rework. Timing chains in a well maintained engine will do upwards of 200k miles. The timing chain is kept tight by spring tensioners and oil pressure. Why do you think there is a problem? You don't say what the symptoms are? Are you sure its got a chain and not a belt?

My 99 z24 cavalier standerd shift it will not shift into 3rd gear


The gear may be stripped, can't catch other gear,have you been grinding this gear,will have to go into transmission and replace third gear, will have to wind second gear out and shift to 4th gear.May be better and cheaper to get a remanufactured transmission cause all parts are new versus just 3rd gear being replaced.

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.
