SOURCE: I need a diagram for a 94 oldsmobile cutlass

There is a dot on each of the gears one on the large cam gear and one on the small crank gear.The crank gear dot on the teeth of the gear should point to the 12oclock postion straight up then the one on the cam gear point sin the 6 O clock position so the dots meet each other then you put the chain on the cam gear then around the crank gear then bolt on the cam gear the dots should still be lined up with each other.this puts the engine in the #4 firing postion

SOURCE: replace timing chain cover on 1999 chevy van 2500

should be able to get the cover off with the engine in the frame. Just take out the grille and header support, then disassemble the front of the engine. If you are dead set on removing the engine, she comes out the front after taking everything out of the way.

I think you had better have a local shop inspect this for a failed engine connecting rod.

Does the 1997 Oldsmobile 1988 6 cylinder have a timing chain or timing belt? When does it need to be changed?

It has a timing chain. A chain will typically last the life of the motor. The only time it really needs to be replaced is if it is making noise. The only time I replace them is if I have the front cover off to repair a leak. Since pulling the front cover is most of the labor its not a bad idea to replace the chain as long as it is right there.

The other exception is if the engine is starting to approach some really high mileage. Say around the 200,000 mile or more range. The old timing chain doesn't owe you anything and it certainly can't hurt to install a new one.

I need to know how to replace timing chain on olds 3.5 twin cam motor.

Take every thing off the front of engine, until you have access to the timing chain cover . This is a very large task. If you are not a mechanic be careful you have to make sure #1 cylinder is top dead center before removing gears and chain.

How do I instal a timing belt on a Delta 88 Oldsmobile?

You don't list the year but i'm fairly certain your Oldsmobile has a timing chain, not a belt. A timing chain doesn't have a regular service interval and should only be changed if it's suspect of having excessive wear or other problem that requires replacement. You can tell if you have a chain or a belt by looking at the timing cover. If it's shallow and metal, it's a chain. If it's about 2-3" deep and plastic it's a belt.
