So i spent all this money to fix my 3.1 v6
chevy lumina and then the chain skiped i
bought a new one but the more iread i get
the feeling that if my timing chain broke then
i shouldve just scraped it unless i want to fix
valves is thetr a chance i didnt bend valves
or broke rod
Timing chains don't usually break, but parts associated with them, like tensioner, guide, or sprocket, break or go out of adjustment. If your chain is OK, which I believe, you might have jumped a tooth and you might just need a new tensioner. This is especially true if the engine still runs, but rough. Access the chain and see. Then remove the sparkplugs and scope the cylinders/pistons.
