Remove serpentine belt. Remove alternator. The bolts that hold the tensioner on are under the alternator.

In order to replace a timing chain for a 2003 Chevy Cavalier, a person will need remove the oil pan, crankshaft pulley and hub, timing cover bolts, and timing cover. Then the timing cover gasket, timing cover and bolts, crankshaft pulley, and oil pan will need to be installed.

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

I have a Chevy Cavelier - year 2000. My timing belt broke at 172,000 with no warning. It was a belt though, not a timing chain.

The tensioner bolt for a 96 Cavalier is in the pulley for the tensioner. The tensioner is in the middle of the front of the engine.

The Chevy Cavalier 2.2 liter engine timing marks can be found on the main pulley. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of the pulley.

The 2.2L and 2.4L uses a chain.a bad chain or tensioner will make the oil light come on at idle

www.nhtsa.gov Could be the timing tensioner about to break. Really sucks when that happens because there is absolutely no room to work on the timing while the motor is in the car. But, it can be done.

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.

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

Every typical "V" style engine has a timing chain. the Chevy cavalier z24 has a 3.1 liter FI V6 engine. so yes it has a timing chain.
