Buy another belt from the auto store and install it. Probably just wore out as long as yoyu can't see any obvious signs of damage other than the belt.

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.

Im changing the timimg belt for my 1995 impreza because it broke, i know that when you are about to change it you must put marks but since it broke. How doi pu the engine back on time

There should be marks on the cambelt itself that align with the gogs markings. Best to start at Top Dead Centre (TDC) If the belt has broken then if that has not done damage to the valves I'd be surprised. If it is a turbo then the valves do touch pistons when out of sync. I have no knowledge about non turbo cars but I think the engine configuration is similar . To be honest it is best to get someone who is familiar with the cars to do it. Especially if it is a turbo. It is one car that requires knowledge and experience to do this particular job. The Cambelt is very long , goes over 4 camshafts , water pump plus guides and crank pully ect. That all needs precise alignment. No errors are acceptable so it is up to you. Think about it and read up before you do it.

Jetta 2001- timing belt broked and now im traing to get the engin on time

There is a very good chance you bent some valves when the belt broke. If it's a 1.8 turbo then definitely, 2.0 you have a small chance that it is ok. The marks are easy to see, one notch on the cam and one on the crank, the crank lines up to the line on the plastic cover that covers the t belt, the cam lines up to the plastic backing piece that is bolted down with the valve cover. Best of luck.

That's a rule of thumb every 60K mi you need to replace the belt even though it looks fine.

Hi! My fan belt broke a month or so ago and now

Could it have been your A/C compressor that locked up and threw your belts off? I would check to see if you can turn the clutch by hand. If not, that is the most likely cause. If so, you probably need to get it checked professionally.
