1996 Pontiac Sunfire Question: timing chain



, Beverly Hills, CA, October 27, 2009, 22:38

okay i think it was my timing chain that has broken i was driving home one day and got about two blocks away from home.. came to a stop sign and when i went to pull away there was no load bang or snap or anything but a tiny pop and now only the bottom half of the engine will rotate when you engage the starter i took off the valve cover and tried to start and nothing moves so thats what i think it is but when i replace it how do i line everything up properly so that the chain goes on in the right place and the timing is close to where it needs to be and are there any major places i should look for any damage

    I wouldn't try this repair without a repair manual, and I've worked on hundreds of vehicles. Go to a parts store, see if they have on, or better you contact chiltondiy.com or alldatadiy.com and for less than $25.00 you will have a good repair manual in minutes.
