Hey all, just bought a used 2001 Cavalier Z24 with a 2.4 L Twin Cam
engine and 133, 000km. I have done some research and have found that
it has a timing chain. I don't have the manual for the car
unfortunately, and was wondering if I should replace the timing chain
before driving it on a regular basis.
