    whitejynx and tmech101,

    The Haynes Repair manual that covers '95-'04 Sunfire's is Haynes
    part# 38016. The timing chain procedure is covered in Ch.2b (engine with "oval slots" in the upper sprockets). Illustration 7.10 shows how to lock the sprockets in their "timed" positions. Illustration 7.11 shows the crank sprocket properly positioned.
