The timing chain on your Saturn is located on the left side of the engine as you are looking at it from the front of the car. If you are ambitious and mechanically inclined, the timing chain is fairly simple to do. It does however require some time and effort to gain access. I suggest that the timing chain be purchase from Saturn because they have an upgrade kit for the oil pump to help lube the new chain more efficiently. The old chain relies on oil run off from the head.
The only fix for broken timing belt or chain is to replace it.
you don't fix the chain you replace it with a new one.
replace the chain and gears
You fix it by replacing it.
Hey Sheila==Call a couple of local garages as it varies as to where you live. GoodluckJoe I had mine replaced for 800
No such thing as a timing chain belt. It is either a belt or chain. Replace the belt according to the schedule in your owner's manual. If it breaks and your engine is an interference engine, you will 95% of the time have damage. You will know the extent of the damage when the engine is torn down. The 1992 SL2 has a timing chain. Mine has 240,000 miles on it and is still running fine.
Replace the chain and both the cam and crankshaft gears.
Chain and it is a very (~1000.00) costly fix.
The 2.9 liter V6 engine in a 1990 Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN
An oil leak at the timing chain means that the seals are defective and must be replaced.
fit a new timing chain
Timing chain noise is most commonly coming from a loose chain. The tensioner could be loose or broken or the chain could be stretched. If the chain slips or breaks before you fix it, then not only will the engine stop running but you could cause serious damage.
A "timing set" includes all the parts needed (new timing chain, tensioners, sprockets, etc.) A timing set for this car costs $132 and up.
first you go to a mechanic. then they fix it for you. last you pay them
i changed timing belt and timing chine but my car know need good fix and not start very well,please help me
redo the timing or replace the whole kit - I might add that replacing the entire timing chain as a kit is what you would do when you find out that the timing chain is bad. The question was what happens when the timing chain is going out? 1. It may get or be harder to start the engine 2. The engine performance will be down 3. The ignition and cam timing will be unstable 4. The engine has a greater potential to "jump" timing or become mistimed. This could lead to bent valves and other problems which are more expensive to fix.
Full size 1994 Dodge Van does not have a timing belt, but instead has a timing chain and gears on front of engine behind water pump.
Timing chains have either a single or a double chain (duplex). The timing chain has at least 20 sprockets, and a tensioner. All of these parts do wear out and cause problems. Some timing chains are made of rubber and others are made of solid metal. The rubber ones usually have a recommended life, i.e. 50,000 miles. One problem is that if a timing chain breaks the valves or hits pistons, it will cost a fortune to fix. Another problem after changing a timing chain is if the gears weren't lined up when it was put on, or the tension was wrong on the timing belt. Usually there should be no more than a total of 1 inch of play. I don't know if the Chrysler has a rubber timing chain or metal, or what it would cost to replace the timing chain on this vehicle.
Incorrect installation of the chain. It is backfiring because the timing is off. Remove the chain and do it again correctly.
Your question is too vague usually when someone says that their engine has jumped time that means that the timing chain has jumped on the timing sprockets. If that is the case you would need to change them. If the distributor is out of time to do it right you would need to have a timing light. You would need a repair manual for the specifications to fix both of them.
I've read around $800-$1k if you take it to a shop..
if the timing chain and tensioners are worn out the chain will wear a hole in the timing cover and the oil will get into the water jacket and the antifreeze will get into the oil high time to fix it
It is a timing belt and it is best to replace the idler, tensioner and belt at once. Also, the water pump if it is high mileage.
well first you need to get the timing close enough to crank then put a timing light on it and bring timing to top dead center.. which is the second mark on the timing chain cover.. there will be a mark on the harmonic balancer line that mark up with the second mark on the gauge on the timing chain cover.. and should be fine
It depends. The explorer has a front timing chain and rear timing chain assembly. While the rear cassette/tensioner rarely fails, it is far more expensive and difficult to fix. If the front tensioner is the problem (which it commonly is), then the repair is quite simple. Either way, a dealership will charge an arm and a leg to repair. I have heard that fixing both can be as much as 2-3 thousand dollars.
