Old push rod broke I ment dont know how to set back on corect timing or if I have to ?

if all you did was replace a pushrod, than timing should be the same as before, provided you didn't change it. what engine is it. and if the rocker is adjusted improperly(too tight), it can cause the backfire. search valve adjustment for your engine.

The timing belt broke in my daughtrs 2006 hyundai accent. How or can i tell if i need new valves and or rods it doeshave a knck in it now and wnt stay idling very long when i start it

if you have damaged rods or valves in your engine, there would be almost no chance that the engine would run or even start. it is quite possible that you did not get your timing right when changing the belt. in most cases, getting the pulley to piston 1 TDC does not always guarantee that the engine timing is correct.
my advice is to recheck the timing of the engine, as well as Ignition timing (which is also controlled by the positioning of the crank pulley) before condemning any internal mechanical failure.
to answer your question, there is no written way of knowing whether your rods or valves are damaged without taking apart the engine and inspecting for damage. however, damaged internal components will always leave a trail.
you can try draining the engine oil and checking the oil for any metal filings. you can also take out the oil sump to check for any pieces of broken metal in the sump.
hope that helps

check the sender. first.

some cars have have a check valves as the filler neck reaches the tank , making rod checks impossible. dang.
i use a 2 foot long thin metal rod.something that can break.
if the sender reads, INFINITY it is Bad. (at sender pins, sure)

Timing belt broken kia rio 2003

it is an interference engine which means that when a belt breaks , you can expect at least half of the valves to be bent and need replacing
you can get more quotes for the job as that seems extreme
the work entails replacing the belt , idler pulleys , cam and crank seals and hydraulic adjuster ( a professional job to get another 60,000miles from the belt)
That much will set you back by around $1000.00 including labour
The extra is the head removal and new valves so add another $700.00 --including labour )for that and you can see that you need more quotes from accredited service shops

Timing chain

bent push rods could have been caused when the chain broke and not from the chain been replaced wrong or the timing out.

if the engine was running when the chain broke the cam would have stopped leaving all the valves in the same positon as the mometum of the fly wheel continued to turn the pistons in the cylendars could hav come up and hitting the valves and bending the push rods. and or damaging the cylendar head.

recommend removing the head and have it checked for damage, as well as replacing the bent push rods, and cylendar gaskit. once the head is checked and the valves are seated well. then replace and follow instructions in the set up for the pistons and cam prior to replacing the chain and setting the timing.

I hope this was helpful.

There is no compression on one of the cylinders, what is solution? My auto is 2000 gmc jimmy, has new plugs, wires, etc. computer shows misfire. Help!

  • Hi, I can offer some answers to your question.
  • Well a few things could be going on here for no compression.
  1. You could have a hole[s] in that piston.
  2. Could have a busted compression ring.
  3. Broke or bent Push Rod.
  4. Carbon buildup under one of the valves.
  5. Broken exhaust OR intake valve.
  6. Could have burned up that exhaust or intake valve.
  7. Could have a hole in that cylinder wall.
  8. Valve spring.
  9. The valve spring keeper might have feel off.
  10. Could have snapped the connecting rod.
  • You say you have no compression in one of your cylinders. What did the compression test show? Or what is leading you to believe you have no compression?
  • There is a difference between a miss fire and no compression.
  • A misfire would more than likely throw an error code.
  • Do you have the actual code?

  • Please let me know what the code was as a miss fire can be many things. But actual no compression in one cylinder would be caused by one of the things I listed above.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I am helping change a thermostat - (we have no manual) where exactly is the thermostat located. This is a 4 cyl, standard trans, 2WD, speedo stopped working at 225K. Heater went out about 6 months ago, AC...

The thermostat cannot cause your heater to go out, though the heater will run a little cooler if the thermostat is stuck open. Please see my tip at to troubleshoot the heater. In particular, I would start by checking the temperature control cable adjustments. I have pasted instructions from below.

If you really want to change the thermostat, please see my tip at . The thermostat is in the housing at the end of the upper radiator hose.

For the speedo, It's probably a broken cable. Have someone take the cable off the tranny and spin the cable in their fingers while you watch the speedo. If the speedo works, the problem is with the gear in the tranny, else the cable is broke.

Let me know if you have more questions along your journey. :o)

Heater temperature control cables to blend door and heater water valve--adjustment:

See Figure 8
When adjusting the water valve control rod, disconnect the temperature control cable at the air mix door lever and then adjust air mix door control cable. Next, adjust the control rod. Reconnect the temperature control cable and then readjust it.
  1. Push the air mix door lever in the correct direction.
  2. Pull the control rod in the direction shown (in the accompanying illustration) until there is an 0.08 in. (2mm) clearance between the ends of the rod and link lever. Connect the rod to the door lever.

See Figure 9
Move the temperature control lever to the cold position. Push the cable sheathing and the air mix door lever in the correct and then tighten the clamp. Verify proper operation.

Turns over but won't fire

well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine
