Well you didn't specify the year, make, and model of the truck you are asking about so this is the best answer I can come up with. Below is a list I found that says what vehicles are interference motors...

Take off your oil cap. Can you see the valve springs? If yes: Look at the springs when someone it trying to start the engine. When the engine is turning over you should see the valves and springs moving. If nothing in their is moving then your timing belt is broke.

Timing belt trying to walk off the gears


There should be a round sleeve that fits on the crank pulley once the timing belt is installed. It looks like a big metal washer. If all the other pulleys are ok and nothing out of line it should not walk off.

1996 villager vg30e distributor won't turn, gear inside engine does not turn


You have defective camshaft drive timing belt (also runs the distributor). Pull the front cover off the engine and take a look. This is a free running engine and the broken belt will cause no damage to the engine valves in this make, it is a different story in other models like the Maxima.

Broke my timing belt while driving will there be any major damage to the motor or can I just replace the timing belt and continue driving Thanks


According to a Gates website (they make timing belts) and another online list (googled: toyota interference engine list), all the engines in the 1991 Celica are free-running and should not suffer damage from a broken timing belt while driving. Cheers!

Drive belt removeal and installition 3.8 liter engine


Similar to my Bonneville. There is a tensioner pully on the left front of the motor. Take a wrench (I think 15mm) and place on the bolt head of the pulley. You should be able to move assembly so you can take the belt off.

If a waterpump siezed on a Daewoo Lanos would that break the camb


Yes. I think. A lot of cars have the water pump under the timing cover and you change the pump when you change the timing belt. They usually don't seize though, they just leak. Did you run it after it broke? How long before the engine quit? Did it start knocking? When you go to change the belt, look for a broken cam, or other damage that the broken belt would have caused. Some engines are free running, meaning they will turn over no problem when the belt goes, other engines are intermittent, meaning the valves hit the tops of the pistons and cause considerable damage. Find out before you go too far. Hope this helps.
