The timing belt is powered by the crankshaft, and the belt turns the camshaft, which turns the distributor. If the belt is broken, the distributor wont turn.

SOURCE: What happens when your timing belt breaks on a

Well i hope you havent tryed to turn it over to start.
And when the engine stopped did it make a knocking noise??? if yes then its the belt, as the price of them it pays to change them every 60,000 miles thats if you do a lot of town work or 80 .000if long driving as if you have done the belt then you have done at least 2 or more valves as when the belt goes the valve stoppes in 100 of a second ,but the piston will do a few more and thats were the trouble lies.
OK so go out to the car and get someone to turn it over with the key a quick turn and before that take the rocker cover filler cap off and just rest your finger on top of the camshaft (if you carnt see the shaft turn when the engine is turned over) and if it dosent turn then the HEAD and all other parts have to go away to be repaired..
SO let me know how you get on ASAP RON

the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
your engine is an interference engine, which means if the timing belt breaks or skips, the valves will hit the pistons.
if your belt broke you will have bent valves. so the heads will need to come off and bent valves replaced.

1996 villager vg30e distributor won't turn, gear inside engine does not turn


You have defective camshaft drive timing belt (also runs the distributor). Pull the front cover off the engine and take a look. This is a free running engine and the broken belt will cause no damage to the engine valves in this make, it is a different story in other models like the Maxima.

Changed the water pump and timing belt now my car idles rough it won't start unless my feet is on the gas on the road it runs fine until i slow down


when you installed the timing belt back on the gears you have gotten one or more teeth out of time on the cam gears this is why it runs good on the road but badly when idling.you will have to remove the timing cover and reset the engine on #1 compression and check all the timing marks and make sure they are in the proper position.re-adjust and recheck all marks are in the proper position after rotating the motor twice.

Engine seized driving down road, now won't even turn over


The 3 liter mitsubishi is pretty prone to this actually. You would have to tear it down to see what happened, but yes it's likely that you have a bent valve and/or hole in the top of a piston from a valve.
