Asked by Jun 29, 2017 at 06:30 AM about the 1969 Cadillac DeVille

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was told I need a new timing chain. I started my
car and a mechanic said with a new timing chain
my car would crank a lot quicker. Is this the case or
is it a bad alternator or another component that
deals with the charge to the car? The alt is new and
battery is as well

Did your mechanic check the car over or just guess? I'd get a second opinion. Could be the fuel system.

If your car is cranking and cranking without catching right away, I would check a number of things, namely fuel delivery as Tom suggested, or spark and timing.

Ok thanks guys for the advice. My mechanic heard me crank it and I guess the sound or the way it was trying to turn over, he made that suggestion. I was curious because I haven't did much to my motor besides change the oil and it has right at 40k on it.
