(Licenced Technician)--Are you sure that this vehicle info is correct? Chevrolet Corsicas have only used 2.0L, 2.2L, 2.8L, 3.1L, and 3100 CC engines (the related Beretta also ran a 2.3L engine). All of these engines use a timing chain - no belts. Also, on all of these engines, ignition timing is controlled by the engine computer and is not adjustable. If there's a timing problem, it must be investigated.

I could not find references for ANY of these vehicles to have any 1.2L engine in them, even into the export markets. The only reason to change chains on these engines is because of wear or breakage. Make sure you have the correct information next time.
