Yes I double Salkim08's solution. Since your motor is made from Aluminum, this could be a big sign that it is an interferance motor. Aluminum expands twice as much as iron. Most old fashion V motors ( v6's V8's) are made with an Iron block and Aluminum heads. But new Transverse motors( sideways front wheel drive motors), block and cylinder head, are made of aluminum.

SOURCE: timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3

Hello mawbea: My name is Roger I will answer your question. You did not say which engine is in your car. So if you have a 2.0 SOHC engine. If the belt broke you should be Ok. If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are just about a guarantee. How ever with any engine using a timing belt it is possible to bend a valve.Should you need more help please just ask.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received helpful information.Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger

Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

I ve just changed water pump,the battery was weak friend pull the car to kickstart while trying to kickstart timing belt brakes while car is in motion but not idling,what went wrong in the engine?help


Depends on whether you have an "interference" or "noninterference" engine. Since you do not mention what you are working on, impossible to know. If noninterference engine, just replace belt after lining up crank and cam(s). If interference, you may have heard bad noises as belt broke, and could have bent valves or even damaged pistons.

2001 trooper engine type free running or interference


should be noninterference engine but have seen in the past if engine was revving high enough when belt broke valves did contact pistons also these engines will sometimes have a camshaft start siezing in the head which will cause the cam pin to shear allowing sprocket to spin on the camshaft and break the timing belt

Timeing belt broke have replaced now not fireing


You either have the belt 180 degrees off. So you have to take belt off and turn crank only (slowly) around once to its mark again, but first you need to go to a website that lists motors that are called "interference fit" engines. (Think Gates belt co. has a list) If your motor is an interference fit then when belt broke the motor is trashed. Interference fit means that pistons can hit valves if the belt breaks. That is why they tell you to replace the timing belt before too long. Also if motor is interference fit when you try and turn crank go slow because you may bump into valve.

Timing belt broke. does it have an interference.


No your engine is not an interference engine you should have the chrysler 3.0 liter engine i believe in your van, I changed a timing belt on one of those 2 years ago because the belt broke, after installing the new belt the van runs fine, so to my knowledge that engine if you have it IS NOT interference you should be able to install a new belt and it will be fine....
