It must be a TIMING CHAIN because the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) does not list a timing belt for the 2003 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 liter
It is behind the timing belt cover and is driven by the timing belt. There are various arrangements according to which engine is fitted.
Unless there is something wrong with it (there shouldn't be), you should never have to replace the timing chain. That's the beauty of chevy.
if you cant figure it out you shouldn't be trying to replace it
With the tensioner installed, you have to push the center of the tensioner piston inward with a screwdriver several times until it releases. When it releases the piston will move outward and push the chain guide tensioner against the chain. If this does not work buy a new one at autozone ($42.00), which is what I had to do. The new tensioner is the same type and works the same way. Vehicle: 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.4L
