I allready change (twise) all kit of timming chain and gears, because it seems like diesel engine when hot. The engine starts whit a big noise, like a diesel engine and then goes mooth, but the noise like diesel engine apears whe the engine starts to get hot. Whe the engine is turned off for more than 3 or 4 hours and its turned on the noise comes again, but if you turn off and then on again there´s no noise. Only when hot.What could be the problem?

It is not in time,It is close enough to make it run.You should recheck the timing marks and adjust it.

Timming chain problems

I don't know what "timming" or "minic" means, but (from context) I'm assuming you think that you are having some kind of a a TIMING chain problem.
The timing chain simply goes around the crank shaft sprocket and around the cam gear, turning the cam shaft. If it is in place, your vehicle will run. If it breaks, the vehicle will not run. If it is loose, your vehicle may run rough, but there will be an obvious rattling noise coming out of the timing chain cover at the front of the engine, as it moves the tensioner aroundr.
That's about it for a timing chain. There is nothing else to it.
Hope that answers your question!
Now if you have an actual SYMPTOM you'd like diagnosed, try again.... and use spell check :)

Does a 2002 caliver with a 2.2 engine have a timming belt or does it have a chain

It has a chain. Or it actually has two chains. One is for the cam, and is the timing chain. And the other chain goes to the balance shaft. Many parts suppliers offer timing kits with the chain, and tensioners. These allow you to change all the necessary parts if you need to do a timing chain replacement.
