    Recheck the belt to make sure it was installed correctly, if it ran before the belt broke then you must have a problem with the work you did.

If the belt actually broke you could have bent valves and or rods because the engine was out of timing.

Tiburon timing belt broke, replaced, won't start


Did you make sure you set cam & crank timing ? If the belt is off one tooth it will cause this. Recheck belt timing first.

My timing belt and balancing belt broke on my 1998 mitsubishi galant es and my husband put the belts back on in time but the car won't crank. The engine turns over when cranked but won't start. ...


Are you sure it was timing belt? If so. When you crank the engine, does it turn kinda fast without making a wump wump sound? When the timing belt broke it may have done some hidden damage. Its possible it may have bent the valve stems by piston hitting them because the timing to move them was off. You need to perform a compression test on all cylinders. Borrow or rent a compression gauge from an auto parts store. They will tell you how to use it, what to look for. If compression is bad, you may have to remove the cylinder head and have a valve job done. Except that you need to replace some of the valves. This calls for some skill or at least good apptitude in mechanics. OR somthing did not go right with the timing belt install.. Thats all I can do for you now. Check the compression. Good luck.

did you check the engine for bent valves? thats really an ISUZU engine I think? check the valve clearance, if any valves have way too much clearance, they are bent.

CAR STALLED. DISCOVERED TIMING BELT HAD BROKEN. REPLACED BELT. STILL WILL NOT START BUT WILL TURN OVER


It sounds like the timing is still off, which will not allow it to start, or you have a faulty cam, or crank sensor.
