SOURCE: 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.

Ian, you may have to pick your self up a couple engine lift brackets. Visit a auto wrecking yard and pick up a couple and while your there ask them for best place to bolt them to 2.2, they lift them all the time.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Timing on a chevy venture were the belt at

Chevy Venture has a timing chain, not a belt. It is a very involved job to replace. If you have never done a timing chain before you may want to consider having it done proffesionally.

1985 chevy has no power going to plugs I changed out distributor and rotor but still know fire?

Replace the pick up coil,in the distributor,along with the ignition module,these work together to pulse the injectors,and the spark for the coil.If one,or both of the parts are bad ,in the distributor,then this would be the problem,also,if you believe the distributor is a good part,and are sure,replace the coil,make sure the rotor button is turning,if it is not,then the timing chain has broke.Rate please,if this was at all helpful,thank you.

Does a chevy 5.3 V-8 have a timing belt or chain? My truck just turned 100k and I'm wondering if it needs maintenance or replacing.

Chain. It doesn't need replaced unless it has a problem. Chains don't have a service replacement interval.
