How do you check the engine timing on a Corsica 1.2 before you replace the timing belt?

(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.

It will take an experience mechanic approximately 8 hours to replace the timing belt in your 1992 Chevy Corsica. The 1992 Chevy Corsica does not have each timing chain, it has a timing belt.

The Chevrolet 3.1 liter V6 does not have a timing belt. It has a timing chain.

Timing chains are designed to normally last the life of the engine and are replaced when the engine is rebuilt.
