You pinched a wire somewhere. Probably the cam sensor wires or even the temperature sensor wires. Do a double check of the wiring harness at the location that would be relevant to the timing belt area. The timing belt in its self would not cause this issue. Hope this helps :)

How o you know if its the timing chain on a 2001 chevy cavalier

If a timing chain fails, the cam will not be connected to the crank and/or in time with the crank.
The engine will not start or not have any power.

I have a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier. Does it have a timing belt or a timing chain? At what milage should I change the timing belt/timing chain? Thank you.

It has a timing chain. The timing chain which is not a timing belt usually does not get changed because it is much stronger to with stand the engines torgue not like the belt which has to replaced every 50 to 60 thousand miles so timing chains do not have to be replaced unless there is something internally that is giving the chain some problems but usually not in most cases.

Parked my car and when i went to drive home it wouldn't start , nothing totally dead. wouldn't start with a boost.

This happened to my sisters cavalier about a year ago. What you want to do is on the + side of the battery follow the red wire lead it should split in to 2 different wires a big wire and a small wire. The big wire should go down to starter and the small wire runs to a fuze box on the drivers side fender well behind the battery. Where the small wire conects to the fuzebox check that conection. On my sisters car it was broken there and would not allow power to get to the PCM, ECM and nothing worked. I hope this helps you out. If you have any questions let me no. goodluck, kyle
