Remove fan blades...

Remove alternator

Remove water pump

Remove the timing cover.

Mark the location of the camshaft in relation to a spot on the engine block so you can line it up correctly.

Unbolt the top gear from the camshaft (DO NOT SPIN THE CAM).

remove the gear and the chain will come off with it.

Put the new chain around the cam gear, slide it onto the crank gear and then slide it back onto the camshaft (it's keyed and notched, so you should be able to line it up with your chalk mark.

scrape the block and sand down to the metal where the timing cover meets the block. do the same to the timing cover.

apply RTV sealant and get the new timing cover gasket, then put the cover back into place and replace the bolts...

Replace the water pump gasket using the same scraping / sanding / rtv method as above and install the water pump.

Install alternator and belt, tension the belt properly.

You should be good to go... You'll probably need to re-time the engine as the old chain I'm sure had some flex in it.

The time chain is located under the timing chain cover, which is behind the fan and under the water pump.

i have a 95 olds achieva 3.1 6 cylinder and it has a timing chain

User Avatar

You don't, as it has no belt. It has a chain that should last the lifetime of the engine.

Should- that is only a couple degrees & can compensate with distributor.

In a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero : Both the 2.4 litre four cylinder engine and the 3.4 litre V6 engine have a timing CHAIN

User Avatar

To replace the timing chain on a 2.4L olds Alero you need to remove many parts. The parts that need to be removed are the drain coolant, the alternator, the air conditioning compressor, the water pump, and the harmonic balance. Once these parts are removed, you will need an engine hoist to lift the engine.

Not very easily if at all, and why would you want to?

There are no large chain gas stations that hire 15 year olds. Smaller mom and pop stores may hire 15 year olds to work as cashiers.

They always blow the head gaskets between 70 and 100 thousand miles.

If you mean 3.8 Litre engine, the answer is 200 horsepower, from the factory. 225 lb/ft of torque.

there should be a sticker under the hood of the car that tells you what the gapping should be. .60

You can try using the panic button on the key chain to see if that will help. You can also try turning on the car to get it to stop.

76l for the first fish and 38l for each additional fish so 266 litres.

When it breaks. Or when you need to get in there for some other reason, like cam or crank work. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. My timing chain has been rolling along for 100K, and I've heard of many at 150K.
