    I have pulled off the cover and the belt is frayed and missing lots of teeth, I am hoping to repace the belt and adjust the timing without incident

You're in luck!

The 1991-1995 are non-interference engines (no bent valves)

The 1996 is an interference engine (the engine is space junk after the belt breaks)

Keep in mind, these engines have a 60,000 mile belt change interval on them!

Good luck!

2001 monte carlo

It's just not likely in an 11 year old car. Timing chains seldom get so worn and stretched that they could jump timing. How to know? Car will run very poorly, if at all. To be certain, pull the timing chain cover off and check the timing marks. Whatever problems you are having, have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes as the first step in diagnosis. Good luck.

How do you know when you need a new timing belt for a 1986 monte carlo

I dont belive this 1986 monte carlo has a timing belt, this car uses the timing chain, the timing chain is good for 150,000 miles, the to check it for wear would be to remove the distributor cap turn crank with a wrench to right mark rotor then slowly turn crank to the left and watch how far the crank turns before the rotor moves, this is how to check the slack on the chain if the crank moves more than 10 degrees then replace the chain, these cars can go 150.000 miles before the chain is needed, and some go more. hope this helps.

Need to know where the timing marks are on a 1995 Monte Carlo

3.4l double overhead cam ? i'm told the 95 is the only 1 with non-interference valves when the timimg belts go out . once you have the crank on #1 top dead center and your positive, there should be a notch in the top of the flywheel . and the cams on the firewall side will have flat spots facing down while the front side will have both cam flatspots facing up .anyways that's a rough idea what you need to get it to do.

Timing belt broke on our 95 z34 monte carlo. Is this an intreference motor? And do i have to replace the water pump, or can i get to it w/o going through the timing belt again?

If the car is a 95 it should be a freewheel non interference. if it's a late 95 or 96 then it is an interference. You will need to replace guide pullys and the tensoner. I will worn you it's a real pain to do. no room for your hands
