Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

My timing chain broke, should I get it fixed or get a used engine?


if it is an interference engine then it is done, valves hit the pistons. I can't get any info on the engine, so call the dealer and ask. Still easier to fix timing chain than haul out the engine, but with those miles if you can find a good deal on the engine and install then go for it. 1000$ would be my max expense.

2oo2 cavalier timing chain broke need to know how to fix it??


With a new motor most likley. When a timing chains break pistons tend to collide with valves which can punch holes in the pistons or bend/ break valves. Usually at this point it is more economical to replace the engine than to actually fix it.

Turns over but won't fire


well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine
