2002 2.2 Timing Chain Replacement

I have a friend that has an 2002 S10, 2.2L.... His timing chain is noisey loud and due to be replaced... He wants me to do it for him, but I haven't put one in before... Can someone walk me through the process? I have read the posts about aftermarket and factory GM replacements and from the sounds of things, one should go with the factory parts...

Re: 2002 2.2 Timing Chain Replacement

Also, doe anyone have a good "cheap" source for OEM parts other than the dealer?

Re: 2002 2.2 Timing Chain Replacement

In this case you're better off with a name-brand part from an auto parts store than OEM. They'll usually outlast OEM and will still be cheaper.

I think you'll find that the OEM will outlast aftermarket by a long ways, most stock chains last well over 100k

Tons of threads on this site of people that used after market and didn't even get 20k out of them.

GM parts direct or sites like them give decent discounts

BTW, "GM" is a pretty good name brand.

don't cheap out when it comes to timing components. EVER.

I'd only use dealer timing chain assemblies.

Re: 2002 2.2 Timing Chain Replacement

See this post #3 and #5 below it for tips.

Also to remove the fan, I use a large crescent wrench on the fan (it loosens the normal direction), and hold the pulley with a large screwdriver wedged in the 4 pulley bolts.

If it has an automatic transmission, someone else can tell you how to hold the engine while breaking loose the camshaft bolt. I have a manual, and it's not a problem.

Labor Rates: $35/Hr. If you watch: $45. If you help: $55 If you tried to fix it yourself first: $95

Re: 2002 2.2 Timing Chain Replacement

Be prepared to use an impact wrench to remove the camshaft bolt. It'll save your knuckles & elbows.
