2001 pontiac grand am 2.4 car died no noise when i went to restart it sounded as if the chain broke the motor turned over freely would a bad chain that jumped time sound like this

Yes a broken chain could sound like and cause a 'no start' condition.

Unfortunately I believe this is what's called an 'interference' engine. In other words, if the chain slips or breaks it COULD cause the tops of the pistons to come into contact with the valves. Bending the valves and possibly causing piston or cylinder head damage.

Also if I'm not mistaken the water pump is also run off of the same chain. So IF you find the chain broke or slipped it may or may not have caused serious damage to other engine components. The water pump isn't a big deal but the valves, pistons, or cylinder head could add up real quick expense wise.

Being attempted starting has already occurred (which is understandable as that's the first reaction when a vehicle stalls) any damage that may have happened is already done. Now it's a matter of diagnosing to see how bad it is.

When attempting to start the engine it will turn over with a rather non-rhythmic sound if the chain broke or jumped time.

Sorry for the 'gloom and doom'. Simply trying to give a straightforward answer.

I accidently drove my 20003 dodge Durango in 2nd gear,it over heated and wont start,timing chain?

overheated motors damage the rings and bore of the engine
it will blow head gaskets and warp/ crack heads
very rarely will it damage the timing chain
run a compression test first and it is possible that there is valve damage ( burnt valves )

2004 Cavalier broken rocker arms after head gasket repair.

Rocker arm issues are common in that car. They can happen without any reason. This is not going to be cheap to look at. When the head was repaired it had to be removed. The timing chain might not have been properly tensioned. That would cause the timing chain to slip and then you have pistons slapping valves and spark plugs. This cause rocker arms and pushrods to bend or break and also can damage pistons.

I have been advsed that I have a broken timing belt or "jumped timing chain.Besides the belt/chain, what other components do you recommend replacing(Gasket/seal,cam and crank pulleys,tensioners)?

I am assuming you have the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine. The timing chain tensioner on these engines is nororious for failure resulting in jumped timing. Be advised that depending upon the situation, you may have sustained major engine damage. If the timing simply jumped when turning the engine off, you may be safe, but if it occurred at highway speed, there is a high probability that there is valve damage in the engine that will need repair before you can move on to the timing chain and tensioner. As far as "other components", if your know that the head is ok, then you should replace the timing gears, chain, and tensioner. Also purchase a "timing gasket set" which will give you the gaskets ans seals you need to do the job.

Timing chain broke on my 96 cavalier 2.2 ohv. Replaced the chain and tensioner but now the car runs rough necause of a miss n the car. The motor had to be hoisted up in order to change the timing chain im...

If the chain broke while the engine was running, and I presume it did, it is possible that you may have damaged the valves. When the chain breaks the cam shaft stops moving and the valves stay in their last position. The pistons continue to move until the engine comes to a stop. An open valve can be hit by a piston, sometimes breaking the valve or just bending the shaft. Also you have to be sure the new chain has the cam shaft and crank shaft properly timed. As I understand that that engine does not have timing marks on the chain sprockets. To test for damaged valves, remove the spark plugs and test the compression in each cylinder by cranking the engine while holding the compression gage in the spark plug hole. All the cylinder should have the same pressure within about 15 psi. A cylinder with damaged valves will not have any compression pressure. If you are unsure about the valve timing check into how that engine is timed. I don't have that information but if is out of time it has a very major effect on the engine performance and idle. I hope this gives you a place to start looking for the cause of the mis. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

It sounds like the timing is still off, which will not allow it to start, or you have a faulty cam, or crank sensor.
