350chevrolet you can replace the chain but you dont want to take off the valve cover..... but no, no worries about bent valves.

Jerry Bransford Nope, as was answered in your other posting. The 2.5 is not an interference type engine like some engines from Japan and Korea are, no worries.

Will Timing Chain Break Bend Valves?

I have a 98 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L and my timing chain broke while pulling out of the garage. My question is, can this break bend my valves like it does with a Honda?

I've replace timing chains/belts before, but valve issues may be beyond my ability. If the valves are bent, I'll just take it in. Otherwise, I can replace the chain myself.

If it can bend the valves, what is a good way to check. I don't have any pressurizing equipment and I'd prefer not to remove the valve cover ...but I will if I have to.
