  1. Remove the timing chain cover (see Section 13).
  2. The timing chain should be replaced with a new one if the engine has high mileage, the chain has visible damage, or total free play midway between the sprockets exceeds one-inch.

    Failure to replace a worn timing chain may result in erratic engine performance, loss of power and decreased fuel mileage.

    Loose chains can "jump" timing. In the worst case, chain "jumping" or breakage will result in severe engine damage.

  3. REMOVAL (Refer to illustration 14.4)

  4. Remove the timing chain cover (see Section 13).
  5. Temporarily install the vibration damper bolt and turn the crankshaft with the bolt to align the timing marks on the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. The crankshaft sprocket arrow should be at the top (12 o'clock position) and the camshaft sprocket arrow should be in the 6 o'clock (see illustration).
  6. Remove the camshaft sprocket bolt. Do not turn the camshaft in the process (if you do, realign the timing marks before the sprocket is removed).
  7. Use two large screwdrivers to carefully pry the camshaft sprocket off the camshaft dowel pin.
  8. Timing chains and sprockets should be replaced in sets. If you intend to install a new timing chain, remove the crankshaft sprocket with a puller and install a new one.

    Be sure to align the key in the crankshaft with the keyway in the sprocket during installation.

  9. Inspect the timing chain dampener (guide) for cracks and wear and replace it if necessary.
  10. Clean the timing chain and sprockets with solvent and dry them with compressed air (if available). Warning: Wear eye protection when using compressed air.
  11. Inspect the components for wear and damage. Look for teeth that are deformed, chipped, pitted and cracked.

(Refer to illustration 12.7)
  1. Loosen the rear wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle, place it securely on jackstands and remove the rear wheels.
  2. Support the axle at the center with a floor jack.
  3. Disconnect the rear parking brake cables from the middle cable at the connectors, detach the retaining brackets and remove the cable retainer clips from the brackets on the trailing arms (see Chapter 9).

    Pull the rear cables through the holes in the trailing arms so they're clear of the axle assembly.

  4. Disconnect the brake lines form the hoses at the trailing arm pivot points.
  5. Disconnect the lower ends of the shock absorbers (see Section 8) and the track bar (see Section 11). Support the lower end of the track bar with a piece of sturdy wire.
  6. Carefully lower the axle assembly until the coil springs are no longer under compression, and then remove the coil springs and isolators.
  7. Support the forward ends of the trailing arms with stands and remove the pivot bolts (see illustration).
  8. Remove the axle assembly.
  9. Inspect the pivot bushings. If they're cracked or dried out, replace them.
  10. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure to bleed the brakes after the job is complete (see Chapter 9).
