2004 caddy cts timming belt broke and bent valves after repair it has lifter noise


You may have to check that the head gasket /s were properly positioned as the oil hole to the head/s may be blocked and not allowing oil to the lifters . If this is the case then on removing the cam shaft you may not be able to pass a small wire any further than the head thickness.

no car stated

no answers (but many are) honda.

is it expensive?, H3LL i dont know, is $3000 expensive.?
if you have a cam timing belt, and is an interference engine.
see Gates belt, dot com and read the ecatalog on your unstated engine. see it? if it says yes, that means ,
bent valves or worse.
answer this, how many times can the pistons bash the valves poppets and not destory the whole engine.
answer , not long. (if going 85mph in Dallas, and it happens? or down hill>?)

you are right to be suspicious of the answer that you got, the only way for valves to get "bent" is for them to come into contact with the piston(s).

the lifters are run by the cam, which is run by the timing belt, (which was just "replaced" by the shop) Renault is not the easiest cars to work on, but if it went to this shop for 90k "service", then they should have had the procedures down pat. Sounds like some-one is trying to "CYA" (cover their "you know what")

I have a 2003 Saturn vue with 138,000 miles. the machanic says the cam shafts are not turning and the timing belt is broken . How expensive is this to do, can I do it myself ?


First you need to find out if the engine is an interference engine or free running. If an interference engine, it means the valves will interfere with the pistons if they become out of time--like when a timing belt breaks. this means the valves will hit the pistons and vice versa. Usually the valves are bent and the cylinder head must be removed to get to the bent valves and replace them. If the engine is free running, the valves and pistons will miss each other if they become untimed. So all that is needed in this case is a new timing belt. Much, much easier and less costly than removing the cylinder head.

To find out if your engine is free running or interference, check out this website:

scroll down and look for the interference check.

1994 Dodge stratus 2.4 dohc Car died and will not start You turn timing belt by had a little and when you try to start it you get 1 revolution and it stops again Any help? Thanks


Did you turn the timing belt or the drive belt, because it sounds as if the timing belt broke. have this checked. if the belt broke the piston may have slapped the valves, this would have bent them. expensive repair

Knoking comes from possible valve lifter sticking or could it be timing ?


valves are knocking due to off timing.change the belt before you get bent valves and a seized engine.

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

My 2001 Daewoo Leganza with 108K miles on it suddenly stalled and would not restart immediately. A state trooper pushed me into a parking lot and the engine started but sounded like a washing machine. Got...


I had a similiar issue (2001 Leganza 112,000 miles) ran great then died. Broken timing belt also bent 2 exhaust valves. Bought the timing belt kit (includes water pump, tensioner and 2 pulleys), top end gasket set, 16 valve lifters (8 of mine had collapsed) and 2 valves on Ebay.I found all the procedure documentation posted on line andI did the job myself for about $325 in parts cost. Runs great now!

Moral of the story....change that damn timing belt at the recommended interval of 60,000 miles!

P.S. Your problem sound like broken teeth on the belt. I would suggest a timing belt replacment and then a compression check of a all cylinders to see if any valves were bent - Good Luck!
