Adjust 2.2 4 cylinder 1998 Chevy valves

No adjustment. Put the rocker arms on and tighten to specifications. The hydraulic lifters are in the head, and they will automatically adjust.

Do the valves need periodic adjustments in a 1999 Chevy suburban and how many valves per cylinder

The valves never need adjusted, .Do to hydraulic lifters and zero clearance.The rocker arms are torqued to 35 ftlbs.So you never have to worry about it.If there is a noise have your lifters checked:)

37,000m 250 six cylinder with no compression. Timing chain setup

Remove any belts, pulleys, accessories that are in front of the front covers on the engine. Remove the covers, you should see the timing chain, crankshaft pulley and camshaft pulley. Turn the crankshaft be hand until the indicator mark on the crankshaft lines up with indicator mark on the engine. It will usually be a arrow or indicator line. Next look at the cam shaft pulley, it to will have an indicator mark, see that they are matched up, If not try turning the crankshaft one more revolution, align the marks and recheck the camshaft. If it is not possible to get both marks lined up at the same time the timing is off.
