Thumbs up 2002 Chevy Cavalier: Timing Chain Replacement?

Advertise Here

wish to attempt a DIY job to replace my Timing chain on my 2002 Chevy Cavalier, it also has a 2.2 liter engine. I would like to find a step by step guide I can get for free, or a video that shows how to replace it yourself. (And a guide that shows what tools you need for the job would be handy)
If anyone could provide the information on where to find a manual I would greatly appreciate it.

Anything that new, I'd go get the factory shop manual no matter how much it cost.
There could be all manner of weird exotic "requirements" such as stretch bolts that
*must* be replaced every time, parts that have to be replaced together as a unit,
special sealants, you name it... The shop manual probably won't cost you more than
*one hour* of a mechanic's labor cost at the stealership anyway

I own the manuel but it's wrapped in plastic and stored.

However, you're in luck. There's a member on here that not only knows that model well, but fixes cars up to race, and owns that same general make and model. His name is Ronnie. I bet he can help you.
He's usually in the chat room.

Google it OP. If you accepted PM I could send you a link.

With the 2.2, the earlier ones had issues with poor lubrication to the chain, causing it to eat itself AFAIR. I think the lubrication hole can be enlarged, but I steer away from GM stuff in the UK, allways seems to be problems with the engines on cars I come across.
