I have a 98 Cavalier. I bought it with a bad timing chain, put a new timing chain and tensioner on it, and before it quit running, it was making a noise that sounded like the timing chain did when I bought it.

I have a 98 Cavalier. I bought it with a bad timing chain, put a new timing chain and tensioner on it, and before it quit running, it was making a noise that sounded like the timing chain did when I bought it. But, as I mentioned, it quit running. I was going 65mph, it died and would not start, and still will not start. I attempted to read the codes in it, and it had none. It has fire, and I intend to check for compression and fuel. Any ideas what would cause the timing chain to make that noise, or why it died?

If the timing chain let go at 65 mph, I would consider having the valves check to see if they are bent. At that speed, it is very possible that one or more valves are bad.
