Non interference motor; all 95 Toyotas with belts are non-interference motors.

My timing chain has snapped


I assume it's your timing belt, not a chain, which rarely, if ever snap. Depending on the make of the car and the engine you may, or may not, have serious engine damage.. DO NOT ATTEMPT to start the car, have it towed to your shop of choice. If there is no engine damage a timing belt replacement generally will run you 2 or 3 hundred bucks...if you did serious engine damage you may have to decide if the car if worth the money to have it repaired. What you need to know is whether your car has an "interference" or "non-interference" type engine.. In an interference type engine if the timing belt breaks the valves will "interfere" with the pistons as they travel up if the timing belt breaks, which results in generally catastrophic engine failure.. non-interference engines generally suffer little or no engine damage with a broken timing belt.. I broke a timing belt on my 1990 Toyota Supra going 70mph, but it was a non-interference engine and after having the belt replaced it was fine.. here is a good list someone put together on what type of engine is in your car.. you should find the engine type either marked on the engine or on a label under the hood, or the owners manual.. good luck. http://yourcarangel.com/2014/07/interference-engines-complete-list/

Timing jumped and the car stopped,i turned the engine and it was free spinning,does this mean the head is messed up


There are two types of engines in this regard--interference and non-interference. Many newer engines are now interference types to increase performance, but this means that the pistons can hit the valves causing major damage when the timing belt breaks. Non-interference engines will suffer no real damage when belt breaks, so you need to get the engine type from under the hood on a data plate and google search your exact engine. Good luck.

Timing belt broke


You did not say which engine you have so I checked the DOHC non turbo 3.0 engine.
Yes it is an interference engine, so yes you could damage the valves when the timing belt breaks and the engine is running.

Timing belt broke . installed new one ,now auto back fire's. won't start


Did you get it timed correctly? You don't just replace them like a fan belt, there is a procedure and marks that you line up. Your engine may be a non-interference or interference which means that if your timing belt breaks your pistons may hit your valves and cause major engine damage. Non-interference means that when the belt breaks it won't interfere and cause damage. Interference means that it will. I don't know what engine you have in your car but if you call a dealer and tell them what engine you have in your car they should be able to tell you if it is a non-interference or interference engine.

I have a 2002 kia sportage does it have a non interference engine? How would I find out? My timing belt broke and I need to know what kind of damage it could do.


You would be very lucky to get away without any damage. For the moment, get a timing belt, line up the timing marks, put the belt on and adjust it as per the manual. Turn the engine by hand, or using the pulley bolt. If after two turns of th engine, that is a complete 360 and nothing stops or locks up then you may not have any damage at all. Try and start the car.

The most likely damage would be, bent valves, broken or burst pistons, valve pushed through the cylinder head, in other words a shot engine. This is the worst case scenario, but it is most likely that one of the above will have happened, in which case the engine will not turn through 360, you should then proceed to take off the cylinder head and check for damage.

In the good old days, you could have a timing belt break without any damage, not now though, particularly with 16vs. although damage also occurs with 8 and 12 vavle engines.

Cambelt or chain


Your 2005 VW Golf has a timing belt and not a chain.
Most importantly, your VW has what's called an interference engine.
If th eblt breaks, it will allow the valve to collide with the pistons and you will have major damage.

Be very careful to replace the belt on or before the manufacturer's recommended replacement interval.

VW originally recommended 60k miles or 5 years but that in 2004 or 2005 they changed that to 40k miles or 3 years after seeing belts (and therefore pistons and valves) go pop after about 45k.

Does a broken timing belt permanently damage a Mercury Tracer


depends on the Engine in the car.

1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.

1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.

1999 escort zx2 timing belt broke


The ZX2 Zetec is a non-interference engine. This means the valves are not capable of touching the pistons at any time. If your belt breaks, there will not be any valve damage. There are reliefs cut into the top of the pistons that allow clearance for the valves if the belt breaks. Most engines are interference and will cause several hundred or even thousands of dollars of damage when a timing belt breaks. Most shop manuals list the ZX2 as interference but it is not. Many people seek out this how-to because a mechanic has informed them that they have valve damage and quoted a repair price over $1000.
