SOURCE: 2004 aveo timing belt broke, all valves bent

just go to any junk yard and find a used deawoo lanos and pull the head if timing belt was not broke, if it looks good, its a exact fit 100%, no special tools needed, just normal wrench set and torqe wrench. after head is installed, get a gates timing belt only.

SOURCE: Hatch won't open on 2004 Malibu Maxx

Try pushing the trunk release and turning the key in the lock at the same time.
It sounds like the electric lock has not released for what ever reason.
You should hear the trunk release relay when you push the remote.

SOURCE: How do I replace the PCV valve on my 2004 Chevy

It isn't servicable. It is part of the front valve cover. It never needs to the serviced or replaced. Just make sure you change your oil when you are supposed to. Parts stores will sell you one for the older style valve covers. If you really wanted one you could put an old sytle left side valve cover on the car so you could replace it when you feel you need to. (The valve cover in front of the car is the left one.)

I'd probably use a bypass pulley, then use the same belt. Just my opinion.
I do realize I didn't answer your question, exactly.

2002 chevy malibu engine 3.4 interference motor or not?


The 2002 Chevrolet Malibu has the 3.1mfi engine which is not an interference engine. It has a timing chain and not a belt. It is an o.v.h. system with two valves per cylinder. I have replaced timing chains and have had the heads checked, with no damage to the valves.

I own a nissian pickup with 260,000miles on the motor. The timing belt broke when I went to park it. It is a collision engine what are the chances the motor is fine.


niceugot2see, If your vehicle is an interference engine then there is a chance that a few valves got bent when the belt broke. The engine should be fine but, the valves in the heads will have to be checked for any damage. If they are, you will have to make a decision to either replace the damaged valves and guides or the entire head. I believe that it is cheaper to replace the head than to pay for the labor to replace the valves and guides. Good luck with this.

Is the Saturn 2000,LW2 3.0 v6 a free running motor, meaning if the timing belt breaks will the motor be OK. Tom


According to my research it is an interference engine. Meaning if your timing belt broke, you could have damage to the valves and pistions.
