ANY CAR IF YOU CARRY ON DRIVING IT WITH A BROKEN TIMING BELT, YOU WAN'T ONLY BEND VALVES ,YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE A COMPLETE ENGINE STRIP DOWN, OR IT MITE BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE ENGINE, OF COURSE THIS IS IN SEVERE CASES, THAT IS WHY IT'S RECOMENDED TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT AROUND EVERY 30,000 MILES
NEVER DRIVE A CAR WITH A BROKEN TIMING BELT.
GET A MERCANIC TO GIVE YOU A ESTIMATE ON REPAIR
That's a classic symptom of a stretched timing chain. Generally you won't have that happen 'till you reach around 175K or more miles. Could also be a variety of other computer control problems but I'd bet on a chain.
Let me guess brought it to mazda they said new engine? Not so the part to likely fix this is $90 But the labour is much higher!! did you get any codes? cam sensor code maybe timing chain tensionor i have workshop manual on this car but need more info before can tell you problem
I have know by experience that if you cross plug wires you can get an engine extremely hot ive seen it also seen it hot enough to get the exhaust manifolds glowing red if they havent put their hands in it and corrected the problem i would check the firing order to make sure it was correct and that they didnt cross the plug wires.
maybe 500.00 to 1000.00 dollars depending on what model solara ,like if it convertable or if it an se or sle and also how many miles are on it, its hard to sell a car that doesnt run and even harder if the motor is blown, start at $ 1000,00 and go from there.good luck.
That's a lot of work considering the low mileage on your car. Makes me suspect that you are taking it to the Dealership for service. if so , please be aware that dealerships are the most expensive place to have your car serviced and often do unnecessary work. If your warranty is over , find a trustworthy mechanic and tackle things one at a time. First ask him to determine where the oil is leaking from and repair it. Need more info about the trans "slip" before i sugest any action , could be several different minor problems. Good Luck.
If your replacing the timing belt you should also be replacing the water pump. Just easier to replace both at the same time. The timing belt tensioner is part of the water pump case. Go to the auto parts store and ask to see a water pump for your engine. New ones come with the tensioner installed. Rebuilt pumps usually have to have one installed. Check out ebay item 220332480595. Nice photo of what you need to know. Good luck.
It is not an eays job. I would have it done by a tecknician so you have a warranty. The honda dealer is your best bet because you will oem parts and the job will be done right . then you are good for another 90,000 miles. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.
your best bet is to get a used ecm form a salvage yard it should cost you about 200 dollars that is far cheaper than going to a dealership or a parts store. generally that is what i do when i replace ecms. there are plenty of wrecked vehicles and the ecm is good in them so why pass it up to get a part that cost brand new about 1500 dollars.. goodl luck. please rate this
