How can you tell if you have a broken timeing chain or timeing is off on a 1996 cavalier 2.2l


take off distributor cap and try to start engine. If rotor does not turn its because timing belt/chain is broken.

Does a 2005 cavalier have a timing belt or chain 2.2 and when do I change it?


This 2.2 Liter engine uses a Timing chain, timing chains are never replaced unless the engine is being overhauled, there is no periodic replacement required like a Timing belt. Engines that use chains are much more durable than those that use belts and last longer per dollar spent on maintenance costs. I wish I had a dollar for every ruined engine due to a failed rubber timing belt.

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.

I have a 96 cavalier,2.2, I am getting any response out of the motor. it is making a banging rattling noise coming from under the right side of the motor by the belts. Do you think the timing chain is...


maybe the waterpump, getting any response do you mean not getting? do not crank engine any more you will damage engine if it is the timing belt or chain !!!!!!!!! pull front timing cover off and inspect before doing anything else, if you want to save your motor and lots off money.. If you have been cranking over it is possible you did valve damage.

1996, 2.2 chevy cavalier, I keep getting different answers. Does it have a timing chain, or timing belt? If it has a timing chain, does that need to be changed?


the 2.2 is a timing chain. If the cover on the front of the engine is metal it is almost always a timing chain. If it is plastic is always a timing belt.

What are symptoms that you need a new timing belt?


basically the same as if you needed a tune up. backfires, sluggish,hard to start, won't start now power.etc. Of course it could be something else like plugs,wires,fuel filter,fuel pump,sensor,etc. Usually you end up replacing everything else and then you find out it is the timing belt/chain. You can always use a timing light to see if it is out of time, as sometimes if is slips you con adjust the distributor. Hope this helped Tim

your car does not have a timing belt it has a chain. but yes if the pump is driven by timing belt and it starts leaking the coolant gets on belt and it will fail. if your car has the 2.4 engine the water pump runs off of the timing chain and depending on mileage it would be smart to go ahead and replace it since it will be tore down anyway will save on labor
