Hey Jodi==This is a very invooved procedure and so get a book on your car at the parts store or MOTORLIT.COM and it will have pictures and everything. GoodluckJoe

you could probably get away with doing this without pulling the engine buts its gonna make it alot harder.

remove the harmonic balancer pulley and the balancer, as far as i know a special puller is needed for the harmonic balancer. remove the timing chain cover and then youll see the chain. if the chain broke or jump a tooth while running the gears wont be properly aligned. there should be a dot on the upper and lower gear which need to be in line with eachother. you WILL need a manual for this. overall its not that hard to do.

Its located behind the waterpump on the front of the block, remove the waterpump and the timing chain cover is directly behind it. Then follow the manual for proper procedures of removing the pully ect. ect.

I doute that you would ever NEED to change the timing gears and chain on that year. It would probably out last the car. If your having a problem I would look some where else.

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.
