How many timing chains are on my 2004 Buick Century?

Asked by Aug 31, 2016 at 10:12 AM about the 2004 Buick Century Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On Friday, 8/26/2016, my car shut off while driving. When I pulled over, there was smoking coming from either under or around the motor. I was informed by road side assistance that my timing chain had broken. I was informed by Autozone that my car has two timing chains. Is this true? If so, how could I determine which has broken or should I just replace them both? Does it come in a kit for 2 if this is so? Please, can any one help?

The car has only 1 timing chain. go to www.rockauto.com and enter your information to look up the part. Look under engine and then timing set.

I have viewed some of the you tube options. What would you suggest? I can't really afford the labor.

I have no way to determine if the timing chain is indeed the problem and I have no way to gauge your mechanical ability in making such a repair. So I would make no recommendations regarding you making the repair. Perhaps a friend or a local mechanic can help. Also the problem needs to be diagnosed properly first before a repair is attempted.
