Honda civic is an interference motor and a broken timing belt at 65 will bend the valves.

Does a broken timing belt automatically mean bent vales?


No you don't always bend valves typically with 4 or 6 cylinder engines are equiped with free floating engines that when the chains or belts break it allows the engine from creating greater damage to other parts of your engine

TCar stopped dead .....timing belt broke on 2002dodge


Sorry for this bad news but if the timing belt broke or jumped then you will need to pull heads due to bent valves.
When the timing belt breaks it leaves valves open or throws the timing off which causes the pistons to come up and hit and bend valves,
the only way to know how much valve damage and to repair is to remove the cylinder head or heads and see.

Driving and the timing belt broke can i just replace the belt? 2003 chrysler 300m


If the timing belt broke, than you heard a big banging noise from your engine and that is it, your valves met with pistons and they are more than likely to be bend, unfortunately this situation calls for engine recondition. But are you sure the belt broke as some of these 300M's were on a chain drive.

Broken timing belt,did it bend the valves?


Its always hard to know if you bent valves or not with out taking it to a garage. Ask yourself these questions. When the belt broke did you continue to try and drive it? Did you try and run the vehicle after the belt broke and how how was vehicle did the temp spike up and stay hot for long?

If you answered no then chances are your probally just fine with a new belt and reset the timing

Bronken Timing belt. Could this have damaged other things in car


If you 2000 Dodge Stratus is equipped with either the 2.0 Liter (SOHC) 4 cylinder engine or the 2.5 Liter (SOHC) V6 then you have serious engine damage. Both these engines are interference engines. When the belt breaks the pistons will make contact with the valves thus causing damage. The belt on the 4 cylinder should have been replaced at 100,000 miles. The belt on the V6 should have been replaced at 60,00 miles. At 60 mph you for sure are going to have some damage. How much damage, you will know when they open it up.

If its just a regular drive belt its impossible for this belt to "kick back" and bend a vale. However if this was a timing belt its quite possible to bend valves if it breaks. You problem could be a crank sensor that may have gotten damaged when this belt broke. If the crank sensor is damaged it won't send a reference signal to to computer therefore the vehicle would not have a spark to start. Godd Luck
