timing belt

Asked by Nov 27, 2016 at 04:01 AM about the 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 cavalier I drove home from
work later that day went out to go to store
and it wouldn't start. I was told it was the
timing belt and I would have to change the
motor cause it bent the valves. Is that true?

You have a timing chain. Not a belt. Do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
