You got very lucky. The 2.4 engine is the only engine that they put in the Sebring that doesn't bend the valves when the timing belt goes. Put a new belt on and you should be ok. Some manuals say the valves can hit each other but I ve worked at a dodge dealer as a tech for 13 years and have never seen one yet that did that

Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

My 1998 stratus timing belt broke I put new one in aligned timing marks when I started it it sounded like it was low on oil


If your engine is a 2.0L then there is a good chance that you damaged the valves. The 2.0 L is an interference engine meaning that the valves can contact the pistons if the timing belt broke while the engine was running

Timing belt broke


You did not say which engine you have so I checked the DOHC non turbo 3.0 engine.
Yes it is an interference engine, so yes you could damage the valves when the timing belt breaks and the engine is running.

I was driving my 1991 honda accord an timing belt broke iam woorried that it might have damaged engine what should i look for i was going to replace belt an try to get back running any advice thanks


Honda engines are what they call interference engines. This means when a timing belt breaks, the pistons hit the valves and bend them. You will need to remove the cylinder head and get the bent valves replaced if you want it to run correctly. Impossible to know how many valves are bent, depends on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

Timing belt broke, replaced it and double checked that the timing marks were perfect, engine light comes on after 15 minutes then stalls all the time. the parking lights come on periodicaly when car is...


If the timing belt broke when the engine was running, I would say that you may have bent some valves. If I remember correctly, Chrysler engines stopped being the 'free-wheeling' type after the Acclaim.That is, there is sufficent clearance between valves and pistons to ensure no damage should the cam belt break with the engine running.

As you have had the engine running, it would be a good idea to give it a compression / leak-down test. Unfortunately fuel injected cars do not back-fire through the intake system as a carb type would do, if a valve were bent.

My van won't start. The serpintine belt broke and I replaced it. It is installed correctly but the engine won't turn over. It trys to start but won't. Any suggestions?


How long did you run the engine after the belt broke? Does it sound like dead battery? The alternator quit when the belt broke, the car will run for maybe 20 mins without it, I would say you wore down the battery, get it charged back up and see what happens. There is nothing else that will make your car not start that is attached to the serpentine belt.

Is the motor on a 98 explorer restricted?


If the engine was running and it broke this may be disastrous and you will need to split down and rebuild the engine.
