My friend, it is important that you get a shop manual for this job, if you are the one to do it. It doesn't take a rocket-scientist but one has to know much about how an engine works and safety.

Now, if your'e asking bcuz you are going to do it and kow quite some on the subject, You really need to consult with a shop manual. Your question indicates to me that you have never done this work. So be very careful and good luck.

There is no 1991 sunfire, it was the sunbird until 1996.

Actually, the Sunbird only went thru '94. The Sunfire showed up for '95. (I know, I own one! :)

Well correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the Cavalier/Sunbird/Sunfire had a timing belt I thought they had timing chains.

If I remember correctly thru 94 cavalier 4cl has the timing chain and sunbird has a timing belt. 95 and up cavalier/sunfire has a timing chain.

Hello, the timing belt has to be changed after 90.000 to 100.000 kilometers

First off, you do not have to remove the engine from any vehicle I know of to replace a timing belt. Secondly, your vehicle has a chain, and not a belt.

To fix the Pontiac Sunfire if it jumped time, the timing belt has to be replaced. Then the car has to have the timing set again after the belt is replaced.

It must have a TIMING CHAIN because Gates ( they make timing belts etc . ) does not list a timing belt for the 2.2 liter or 2.4 liter engines in a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire
