timing gearsI've been told by more than one person that my '91 Cutlass Supreme has timing gears instead of timing chain. .

I looked in the book and you should have a timing chain.

The timing chain is set by lining up the marks.The distributor is set to 0 degrees with the aid of a scan tool. It can not be done with a timing light.The timing chain is set by lining up the marks.The distributor is set to 0 degrees with the aid of a scan tool. It can not be done with a timing light.

There is only one way, the timing chain MUST be right for the engine to operate properly. If the camshaft was set up wrong, the front of the engine must be disassembled and the timing chain must be set up properly.

If you look up the replacement parts for repair for the 2004 2.2 you will see the complete timing chain set. So, to answer the question it is a timing chain.

There wasn't an option for a 4.3 in the 1993 cutlass supreme. You had the 3.1 and the 3.4 dohc as your options.

I am assuming you already have the timing chain off the vehicle, and you are looking for the timing marks. if not, please note, there is no manual adjustment on the timing chain. I have included a picture of the correct timing placement on my website http://thecommi.angelfire.com/index.html under Timing Chain. I hope this helps you.

depends on if your trying to set the time on the timing chain or trying to set the base timing for the computer. The base timing is fixed by the PCM/computer. for setting the time on the timing chain consult a service manual

No, a timing chain will normally last the life of the engine, but a belt must be replaced at a set mileage that is dictated by the manufacture.

A "timing set" includes all the parts needed (new timing chain, tensioners, sprockets, etc.) A timing set for this car costs $132 and up.

The cam timing on a 4.6 SOHC engine is set by aligning the timing marks of the timing chain to the cam sprocket. This sets the initial timing based on factory settings.
