Question about 1993 Mercury Tracer
Does a broken timing belt permanently damage rthe engine of a 1993 Mercury Tracer.
Depends on the Engine in the car.
1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.
1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.
