When should you change a timing ChainI have a 2001 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 motor does it have a timing belt or chain?
Once you reach 100K you're running on or at the limit of life expectancy of the timing chain, chain tension-er, cam chain gear and crankshaft chain gear. All four should be replaced as a set. You will also need to replace timing cover gasket and the crankshaft front cover seal. Cost of parts < $75.00 but not an easy job.
