It all depends on weather the inlet and exhaust valves were damaged when the timing belt snapped if they are you will have to remove the cylinder head and replace the valves and make sure there is no damage to the pistols, cylinders or the head it's self.

Let me know if this helps

SOURCE: had the belts break and come off engine, top center pulley damage

the belt that turns the alternator is called the serpentine belt. this also usually runs your fan and is sometimes also called an "accessory belt"

If you look down at the belt area, you will see a pully toward the front of the car that looks like it's attached to an arm. That is the tensioner pully. The tensioner is spring loaded. If you look at the arm of the tensioner there should be a square hole in it to insert a socket wrench or a breaker bar/pull handle to use as a lever to remove the tension from the belt. If there is no hle, then use a wrench(possibly 15mm) on the bolt head of the pully itself as your lever. As you hold the tensioner out of the way, unloop the old belt. Pay attention to the routing, so you can reinstall the new one correctly. Then, you route the new one in and again use your lever to move the tensioner so you can get the belt over the last pully. I usually put it over the alternator last. Use a light to make sure the belt is fully on all 5 grooves of every single pulley before you start the car.
You can also go to chilton.com and look at your cars manual

SOURCE: Timing Belt Problem-6 cylinder Saturn wont' start

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.

After replacing altenator - car misfiring on cylinder 1


The MAF Sensor is common to all banks of a motor or all cylinders,
& you only have one cylinder with an issue

Let the mechanic do their job thru proper testing,not guessing &
changing parts,they appear to be okey so far.

Injector wires or ignition wires could be on the wrong coils or you have internal valve damage.

Need to do more of the correct testing,the shop should know what
to do.

Bad missing in motor on 2001vw beetle


If it is a 1.8 turbo the plugs are under the coil packs on top of the engine. A regular spark plug wrench will fit them. They are down in the block about six inches. They are easy to change. I changed them in about 30 min. The coil packs are held on by 2 torx screws.

Spark Plugs Location


They're accessible through the top of the engine - open the hood and the spark plug wires should be very easily visible on top of the valve cover. Pluck them out and the plugs are below.
