Of all the engines out there, the 3800 is among the easiest to do in the driveway/carport. basic tools. 99% of the work from topside. well engineered repairable engine comes apart like leggos. if you're new to this type of repair, knowledge is power, so buy or borrow a haynes or clinton repair manual for complete step-by-step instructions, pictures, and diagrams.
or get a printout of the timing marks free from your local auto parts store and wing it. remove belt, tensioner, harmonic balancer (and pulley), and timing chain cover, and you're right there. you're gonna save hundreds of dollars doing this one yourself...

No spark wont fire 1986 buick regal


If the starter cranks very fast when you are trying to start to check for spark, it is a possiblity that you have a busted timing chain. This explains the rapid sound of you starter engaging, because the crankshaft is not being turned and the camshft is not either therefore no spark is made.

I have a 1989 Buick Regal with the 3.1 V6 engine. What is the replacement interval for the timing chain? This car has well over 200,000 miles I think on the original chain. I am the second owner and got it...


There is no standard replacement interval for timing chains. There are some signs that will indicate that it is worn out like a rattle from behind the timing cover. If the engine has been taken care of the chain should last the life of the engine.

The only time I have changed them is if the vehicle has higher miles and the timing cover needs to be pulled to fix a problem like an oil leak or coolant leak. Otherwise they are not common repairs.

let down the window, take a chain with a hook on it ,hook it on to the  handle and if your strong enough pull the chain hard and hold it from the inside and once again if your strong enough turn around and give it a bruce lee with boots on. be careful to put a few towels between the chain and the finish you don't want to wear the solution afterward.
