No, Not Usually. That is why they Break most of the Time. To keep the Motor from Causing any Further Damage to Itself. Just get it Replaced and the Timing Reset and it Should be Fine. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!

I have a Renault Megane 1.4 2000 model the timing belt has not snapped but the teeth on the belt have broken away which in turn will not allow the timing belt to rotate. Would this be just as bad as the...


Yes it is as bad as the belt snapping, if your lucky there will be cutaways in the pistons so the valves may not have touched, its a bit tricky to check until you replace the belt and can check valve clearances and cylnder compressions,
or remove the head and check.
If you replace the belt it is often recommented to replace any bearings and pulleys as well, as a tight bearing may be the initial cause.

I have dirty water getting into the spark plugs of my 1993 renault clio 1.8 16v. what is causing this problem?


What happen at some time or another your engine got hot, now the head gasket is damage and letting water go where it should'nt. The only fix for this is to have your head gasket replace and the cylinder head check for crack's and resurfic, also they'll need to fine out why it over heated in the first place . Good luck

I have a Clio 172 sport but the rear brakes are not working, however the handbrake is fine? As all the braking is at the front of the car this is damaging the front discs?


Most of your braking occurs at the front of the car, anyways, but you need to get those rear brakes checked...

If you have a split (front-rear) master cylinder, check that. Did the fluid level drop enough at any time such that the system may have "sucked air" into the rear system only?

If the timing belt has snapped then you will have caused major internal engine damage. Its not just a case of replacing the belt as its likely the pistons will have made contact with the valves and bent them in the process. You will need a qoute from a garage for the repair and potentially you are looking in excess of £1000. The only alternative to this is to source a suitable engine for exchange from a breakers.
