Best Answer

A '98 Cavalier Z24 has a timing chain, not a belt. Currently in the process of changing the water pump, and the timing chain is involved. We are looking at replacing the chain while there because it is a very involved process. You should get a Chilton manual, well worth the money. Will let you know more after completion.
