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.

Noisy fan acceleration with air conditioning on


This is usually the case when the belts are not tight enough. It may also happen if there was some oil spilled on one of the pulleys or something that would cause some slippage and wear on the belts. Most likely because they aren't tight enough.

Thinking of buying a peugeot 307 with 124k, will changing the timing belt make a difference?


If the belt is broken, pass on buying it. Broken timing belt = BIG $$$ repair. If it's running and price is right, w/that many miles get timing belt changed ASAP.

I have a qustion regarding Mercury Tracer 94 1.9l If timing belt breaks does teh vaulve have clearance or no clearance. Thank you for your help.. Alina


Hi Alina,
From what I've been able to find, there were two versions of this engine. One had square teeth on the belt and another had round teeth. If it is the one with round teeth on the timing belt, it is an interference engine and the valves most likely will be damaged if the belt breaks.
Hope this helps,
Dave

The timing belt should not have been affwcted. Sounds like you have everything chk'd and accounted for.. The best way to chk the cam and crank is a compression test.

To replace the headlight on a 1993 Tracer you must turn the black plastic retainer ring counter clockwise and then pull back gently. The ring and bulb should then slide out toward the engine.
Carefully grab the sides of the plug and pull the bulb out.
When replacing the bulb make sure not to touch the glass part or it will cause the bulb to burn out sooner. Place the black ring back over the bulb with the open end towards the glass part of the bulb. Fit the wiring onto the back of the bulb and insert the bulb back into the reflector. The black plastic ring has notches that fit over protrusions. Turn the black ring clockwise and your done. Test the headlight. Happy Driving
