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.

2002 Cavalier Water Pump Replacement (Part 1) - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at:
See part 2
This is part one of the 2 part series I've done on the replacement of the
water pump on this 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with a 2.2L engine, this is the
older version of the 2.2 with the vin digit #4 not F, the newer version has
an updated design and is nothing like the engine in this video so if you're
a bit lost that is probably why.

Kent Moore J-43651 Alternative Ecotec Water Pump Tool
How to change a water pump on an EcoTec without removing the timing cover
and chain. At DenLors Tools we always look for lower cost alternative
specialty tools for our customers. Several years ago the only tool
available for changing the water pump on a Chevrolet Ecotec engine (made by
Saab) was the J-43651. It was made by Chevy's OEM tool manufacturer Kent
Moore. The tool was around $200. We were able to find a lower cost
alternative in the UK made by Sealey tool number 4769. The UK had been
changing a lot more Saab water pumps at that time than we had in the USA at
that point. We imported the specialty tool and were the only tool company
in the USA selling an alternative to the Kent Moore J-43651 water pump
tool. Now DenLors Tools sells the OTC-6616 (the OTC6616 is linked at the
end of this video description). It is is just like the J43651.
Here's basically how it works; After removing an access plate on the front
of the timing cover, the tool holds the timing gear sprocket stationary
allowing the removal of the water pump from the back side of the cover.
This saves time because the timing cover and chain does not have to be
removed when just changing the waterpump. The timing position is not lost
and that saves a huge amount of time compared to having to remove the
entire timing cover, chain and dealing with the tensioner etc and then
re-installing everything. Here's the link to the tool

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 6, 2008 -
Bryan Jimenez advanced to his first final round in nearly two seasons, but
he'll have to wait until the first weekend of May to see if he's the
eventual winner. Shortly before the Chevy Cobalt driver was to stage in the
final round against Kenny Tran, a heavy thunderstorm forced postponement of
the championship heat until round two of qualifying at the NOPI Spring
Nationals on May 3 in Englishtown, N.J.
