Check for excessive slack in the timing chain.
Check Coloradofans.com or 355nation.net. Both are leading Chevy Colorado message forums.
If your vehicle is at least 60,000 miles it is recommended you replace the timing chain. If your timing chain broke, your engine would NOT run because the timing chain is what rotates your engines camshafts to open and close the valves. Also, you would have some serious engine damage if you were driving and your engine suddenly just quit and it happened to be your timing chain. There really is no way to "check" a timing chain as it's hidden behind the belt area of the engine (if I'm not mistaken). If you're going to go through the labor of "checking" a timing chain, you might as well replace it, as the average timing chain job costs about $220, $200 of that being the labor.
Check water pump and pump gasket.
The roll pin in the distributor drive gear may be broken. Remove distributor and check. Camshaft broken, But not very common in stock engines. Timing chain broken. Not common either. Cam gear on the timing gear may be striped off/teeth gone. Check timing chain.
If the timing chain has jumped time, the vehicle will run rough or not at all. You will need to check the time with a timing light to see if it is off.
It might not be the timing chain, check if the exhaust muffler has not come adrift.
NO there is NOT one definitive answer. It depends on the year and engine size. It could have a chain or a belt. Check the timing cover, if its plastic its belt, if its cast metal its chain.
check timing. timing advance. or slack in timing chain/belt
Easiest way is to pull the valve cover and turn the motor over by bolt on crankshaft and check to see if the valves are moving
It has a timing chain. The timing chain is on the front of the engine. But before messing with it ,I would have the timing check first. You may have something else wrong,like a sensor or a vaccum leak.
A 2006 Nissan Pathfinder has a timing chain. For more details on location and repair, check your owners manual.

Check for vaccuum leak. Check ignition timing Check timing chain (may have jumped) Check for restricted exhaust Transmission? Clutch slipping? Plugged air filter? Plugged fuel filter?
allot of reasons check the carb. check for vacuum leaks. check the timing. check the comp codes.
It has a timing chain that requires no maintenance and should last the life of the engine. The V6 has a belt that must be replaced every 105,000 miles. 2.4L has timing chain, but check water pump and belts after 105,000mi or older.
You dont they are meant to be in the car for the life of the engine. But you can buy a timing light and check the timing.
You use a timing light to check the marks on the timing chain/belt.
There is no timing belt on any S10 or Sonama or Blazers or Jimmys, No matter if you got a 2.2 or 4.3 even some of the older s10s that had a 2.8 in them never had a belt. Its a timing chain. The timing chains you shouldn't have to worry about... Thats if you maintance your vehicle and drive properly.
With a timing belt, it should be changed around 90,000 miles. A chain can last much longer. Have your mechanic check it to see if there is any rattling or loosening on the chain. Some timing chains can last the lifetime of the car.
The timing on a 1987 Chevy Celebrity is controlled by the engine control module, there is no provision for adjustment.
