The timing belt dose not seem to be broken and the motor turns over but the timing belt and gears do not move while the motor is turning over.

CHECK AUTO ZONE .COM FOR TIMING PROCEEDURE. I HAVE DONE THIS & IT IS VERY HARD TO GET TIMING MARKS PERFECTLY LINED UP. TOOK ABOUT 3 TRIES. ( CAMS WANT TO MOVE DURING PROCESS.) WHEN TIMING IS JUST RIGHT , IT WILL RUN. MAKE SURE BOTH CAM SROCKET ARROWS ARE POINTING UP. THERE IS A TIMING MARK IN THE VALLEY OF THE EXHAUST CAM SPROCKET TEETH THAT I MISSED.YOU HAVE TO START WITH EXHAUST CAM TIMING MARK JUST BELOW INTAKE CAM SPROCKET TIMING MARK & THEN WHEN BELT IS COMPLETELY ON , MOVE EXHAUST CAM TO TAKE UP SLACK IN BELT. IT WORKS !!!

How can I tell if my timing belt broke on a 2001 pt cruiser lights and radio work new battery 2 weeks ago


Your car has an interference engine, which means if the timing belt is broken, the pistons will strike the valves. If your engine turns over and there is no noise of internal metal-to-metal contact, your timing belt is not broken. If your engine does not turn over, and you suspect the timing belt may be broken, remove the valve cover and SLOWLY rotate the crankshaft a few degrees by hand, watching if the camshaft rotates. If the camshaft rotates, the timing belt is not broken.
You provided no information on why you think the timing belt may be broken, although you refer to having good electrical power. Does the starter engage? If not, it has nothing to do with the timing belt. Does the starter engage but the engine doesn't start? If so, timing is way down on the list of things to check. After checking spark, fuel delivery, compression, etc.

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

If the car never had this staring fault earlier to changing of the belt . then you must remove and check again the timing settings.
This is very important so as not to damage key components with a wrong settings.

Timing belt problem


when you broke the belt you most likely broke the magnet for the cam sensor. What you need to do is spin the engine around to TDC and look for a magnet.

Take the sensor out first.

2001 PT Cruiser quit running driving down highway


Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.
