I have a 1998 Cavalier with a manual transmission with 94,000 miles on it. I want to replace the timing components chain, gears, the works. Is this a job for an average Joe or should a shop take care of it? And what about replacing the clutch?


This question depends on whether you have a 2.2 or a 2.4. If you have a 2.2, I think a mechanically minded average Joe can handle the problem. If you have the 2.4, do not attempt it. It is difficult even for more the most experienced mechanic.
