2002 chevy malibu engine 3.4 interference motor or not?


The 2002 Chevrolet Malibu has the 3.1mfi engine which is not an interference engine. It has a timing chain and not a belt. It is an o.v.h. system with two valves per cylinder. I have replaced timing chains and have had the heads checked, with no damage to the valves.

At what mileage should a timming chain be replaced?


Timing chains are never replaced unless the enginme is being rebuilt or it fails, this is not true of timing belts which are rubber drive belts for the cam or cams, they are replaced at about 90,000 miles This car doesn't use a timing belt in the 3.1 Liter V6 used in this car.

When is it reccomended to change your timming belt on a 2000 GMC seirra z71


These vehicles actually have a timing chain, not timing belt.These chains obviously last much longer than belts.These last till about 200,000 miles, then you start experiencing chain tensioner slap, then it's time to replace that little puppy.I hope I could help.Get back to me with any questions.Thx.

Working on a 2000 Audi A8. Need info on changing


If it's anything like the six cylinder engines from Audi, which I'm very familiar with, and from what I remember of the V8, you have a timing belt that drives the water pump, crank, and exhaust cams, and also includes a tensioner and an idler roller. The timing chains come into play in the cylinder heads. What Audi did was to only drive the exhaust cams off of the crank, using the timing belt, and inside each cylinder head there is a timing chain assembly that is used to drive the intake cams off the exhaust cams. On a periodic service (like the timing service) you only need to do the timing belt. The timing chains are only replaced if the tensioners fail - you'll know this by a diesel-like clatter from the cylinder heads. Failure of the chain drive assemblies is very rare, which is good because they're incredibly expensive (on the V6 engines they're upwards of $700 each). If you're doing this job because it's due based on mileage, don't touch the timing chains in the cylinder heads - only change the timing belt, tensioner roller, relay arm, hydraulic tensioner, idler pulley, water pump, and serpentine belt. You can leave the chains alone.

1999 chevy malibu


That engine does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and therefore much easier to work with as it can only go on a certain way, the primary focus being getting the dots on the timing chain sprockets lined up properly.

I believe, with the engine at Top Dead Center on cylinder #1, the dots will be facing each other. That is to say, the do on the cam sprocket will be facing the dot on the crank sprocket.
