The timing is controlled by the vehicle's computer. There is no need to adjust it during normal maintenance. I don't believe that it is possible to adjust the timing on that vehicle. I think that it was set and sealed at time of manufacture. Safest thing is to check with the dealer.

How do you align timing sprockets 2000 Saturn ls2?

There are 4 camshaft sprockets that must be aligned perfectly for the engine to function properly, and if the timing is off very far the engine can be completely destroyed. A special alignment tool is available that holds the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets in alignment while you replace the timing belt and adjust the tensioner pulleys. That's about the only way to properly align the timing sprockets, and the only way approved by the manufacturer.

The 2000 silverado did not have a 350 engine in it. Unless someone put a 350 in it. The 2000 model trucks had 1 of these engines in it. V6-4.3L, V8 engines are-4.8L, 5.3L 6.0L And the factory 2000 year engine timing is not adjustable, it is controlled by the computer. you can also get a v8 5.7.... and the only way to adjust the timing is to get it programed or get a power programmer

Will the valves be damaged when the timing chain breaks on a 2000 Saturn?

Yes.The good news is, the timing chain seldom breaks; they aren't like the timing belts. You can typically just drive the vehicle until the engine is tired, then replace the timing chain, sprockets and tensioner slides while you're rebuilding the rest of the engine.The bad news is, anything is possible and a timing chain CAN break.The "L" series uses a timing belt for the V6 engine, but the 4 cylinder Saturn engines all use timing chains.
