Ecotec 2.2 Timing Chain guide broken
This 2.2 just stopped running one day. It will crank but not fire. A
compression check showed 0 on all cylinders. When the engine was cranked
there was a loud ticking sound. I pulled the timing cover and this is what
I found. None of the timing marks line up. I think the head is probably
shot. I got the car for 170.00US so it might be worth fixing.

2.2 Ecotec Start
A video of me staring the 2.2L Ecotec engine in my 2003 Cavaleir.
At 180 000+ Kms, this car still runs very well and runs and starts better
than our 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander with only 102 000 Kms!
Keep up oil changes with synthetic high quality and keep your car clean and
components oiled and you will easily pass 300 000 K.

Replacement of faulty flasher switch corrected my turn signal problems.
Turn signal would work correctly at times, and incorrectly at other times.
This drove me crazy and was extremely hazardous when driving, no one could
help me correct the problem. I recommend purchasing a new flasher at a
reputable auto parts store. In the demonstration I used one from a salvage
