How do i do valve timing from scretch after timing belt broke on a volvo t5,2.3l s60


If the belt broke while the motor was running, the motor is likely badly damaged since, I believe, the five cylinder Volvo engines are "interference engines". The crankshaft and pistons keep moving while the car is in gear and still moving, but the valves stop dead the instant the timing belt breaks. The pistons would have hit some of the valves, cracking or badly damaging the cylinder head and some pistons. If the motor is not damaged internally, though, just line up the timing marks on the cam shaft sprockets and the crankshaft sprocket and put on a new belt. Go online for a diagram of how to align the timing marks.

OK.... 99 Mazda B2500 truck with a 2.3 engine. The timing belt broke, installed new timing belt. All timing marks are inline. Still will not start. Act like it a few times when turning over, but will not...


The description you give of your problem leads me to believe that you may have a bent valve. The way to check this problem is to do a compression test on each cylinder. You should have a compression of about 120-150 psi on all cylinders. If you come up on a cylinder with a much lower compression, this will tell you that a valve is bent. You will have to take the head off and have it serviced. This is what happens when timing belts break due to an extended time not being changed. Scheduled change times are at 60,000 miles. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How to install timing belt on 1993 toyota camry 4 cylinder


1993 Toyota 2.2 you have valve clearance,meaning if you broke the belt driving you just broke a belt and NO VALVE DAMAGE. On the cam gear line that dot on top with the mark at the top if the cylinder head it a little dipple.As for the crank just line up the dots.There is nothing confusing turn one at a time or both at a time.

Timing belt broke at about 55 miles per hour. do you think the valves are bent and what parts do I need to buy other than belt? Oh 2001 hyundai sonada with 2.6L motor. THANKS Jimmy


The 2.4l and 2.5l engines are interference engines, meaning it is highly likely that you bent your valves when your timing belt broke. Besides the timing belt, you may need a new belt tensioner and pulleys. I would replace the water pump too.

Timing belt broke and i need to set the timing


The pistons, valves and cylinder walls typically take a beating when the timing belt breaks. If yours didn't, I'm amazed.

But you can TRY this:
For most OHV engines with a timing belt there is usually a hole in the camshaft sprocket that can align with a hole in the head. If there are two camshafts, each sprocket typically has the same arrangement. Look closely, if there is no hole, there will be a mark of some kind to indicate #1 Top Dead Center.
Make certain that the crankshaft and the camshaft(s) are all at #1 TDC, if there are holes in the sprocket(s), push an appropriately sized drill bit through the hole, into the corresponding hole in the head to hold the camshaft timing, then replace the belt, making certain that any idler pulleys or tension adjuster pulleys are out of the way. After you've put the new belt on, Put the idler pulleys and tension adjusters back into their appropriate place then remove whatever you used to hold the pulleys in place.
Most of the time a valve will "kiss" a piston when the timing belt breaks. That causes immediate and fatal damage to the engine requiring (at minimum) a complete engine rebuild. Sometimes valve seats, pistons, cylinder walls and other components are destroyed when the piston and valve collide.

Timing belt broke


Honda accord 2.2L and 2.7L engine's are interference engine's, which if timing belt breaks it will bent cylinder head valve's, cylinder head will have to come out to replace bent valve's, also your water pump is timing belt driven not bad idea to also replace while in there, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

My timing belt broke and I have purchased a new one; however, I need to know how to set the correct timing for a 2001 Volvo S60 witha 2.4L engine?


you need a service manual, if you don't have one i fear that you maybe in over your head-either timing belts or chians there are always timing marks which indicate cylinder id and tdc, basically top dead center of cylinder #1 matched to camshaft position of intake and exhaust valves inclosed position (cam lobes off valves and valve springs relaxed to full height-not compressed as that indicates valves are still open or in overlap-you must know you four strokes and consider which stroke will be required) anyways if your belt broke you may have larger problems than lacking a service manual as most engines today are interferance which means that it the valve timing is incorrect you could be tagging valves against the pistons, and if your belt broke you may have already done so-check your valves as they maybe bent and in this case you require a head job as well.

Timing belt broke on 1996 Contour; sepentine belt replaced only 3 yrs. ago - related?


Not at all. Your serpentine belt is in the same area as the timing belt, however is NOT related to the function of your timing belt.

If you have a 4 cylinder 2.0, then you have little to worry. Most of the contour 4 cylinder engines are supposed to be "non-interference"... which basically means that if the timing belt breaks, then there is not much risk of your contour's engine to have internal damage!

So... Replace the timing belt, and you should be back on the road within 1 day.

Timing belt broke


Daewoo engines bend valves when the belt fails ,confirm this with a cylinder leakage test.
