2000 hyundai accent timing belt broke. absolutely no noise when belt broke

Wouldnt i here the pistons hitting the valves? anyway, replaced the belt, started the car, its making noises NOW like the pistons are hitting the valves. also like no or hardly any compression and it feels like its only running on two of the four cylinders. the car ran great up to the point of the belt breaking. what should i do? i cant afford a head job. what about a used one at a junkyard?

No, you won't hear it, it will happen same instant as the belt breaking.
Try to find a head from a low mileage unit, if at all possible. Pull your head off first, and check the top of pistons for damage. If the pistons and lower end are alright-spin it around by hand several times and listen for noise- then go for the used head.

SOURCE: power steering noise

The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

With regrets, Not likely, pull the vlave cover and observe the height of the valves, if it is bent it should be not quite as tall as the rest.

SOURCE: 2000 camry. blown head gasket (daughter drove car

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....

I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.

What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

SOURCE: one cylinder has zero compression. took head off

OK!... did you do a cylinder 'leak down test'?.. .if not, do it! If any 'unacceptable' leakage, have the head REDONE! NOW!.. you must BE SURE the valve timing is accurate!... Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.

Timing belt broke 2005 hyundai tucson. New belt & tensioner& water pump Compression check shows no compression # 2 & # 6. Is it worth it to rebuild top end ?


I would say so, most probably the valves have been bent by hitting the pistons when the belt broke. When the belt breaks, the valves stop mmoving, and the pistons keep moving and will hit the valves and damage them.

Timing marks hyundai excell


What year, and what engine?

If it broke I wouldn't bother replacing it until I confirmed that the valves are NOT bent! Usually when the belt brakes on a Hyundai the piston will hit a valve or two and sometimes the valve will actually poke a hole in the piston.

How to set the timing belt on sprockets


there are timing marks on the sprockets. the upper siprocket should have the dowel pin in the 12 oclock position then you will see a mark on the right side of the sprocket at about the 3 oclock position that you can align with a small arrow on the head. the lower sprocket also has timing marks indicating top dead center. Be careful because the 1.5 is what you call an interference motor which means if the belt actually broke the valve will get hit by the pistons cause them to be bent and ruined. you will have to remove the head and replace the valves.

Engine will roll over but not start after changing the timing belt. Checked fuel pump and filter, those are working but it still acts like it isn't getting any fuel.


Did the belt break or did you just change it for regular maintenance at 60,000 miles? if it broke the valves are most likely bent, this is what they call an "interference engine" this means if the timing belt breaks the valves hit the pistons, let me know ok.

How many miles before timer belt needs replaced


they recommend that 100,00km service includes timing belt but in my experience it wouldnt hurt any thing after 80,000km it'll make the 100,000km service alot cheaper.

Timing belt broken


this is an interference (valves hit the pistons) engine and will cause engine damage if the belt brakes, the best thing to do is put the belt on and see if it starts, I have seen some dodge the bullet on occasion. In most cases u will hear nothing, the engine will just stop running.
