SOURCE: My timing belt broke on

mine broke on my 2000 and i lucked out, the top end was unharmed. the cheapest route is to have someone change the timing belt, fire it up and see if it runs. it will spit and sputter at first while adjusting the timing, but after a few minutes it will clear up. if it runs like ****, your valves are shot. the 2.4 is a non interference motor, so it's the luck of the irish on your side.

SOURCE: 1999 escort zx2 timing belt broke

The ZX2 Zetec is a non-interference engine. This means the valves are not capable of touching the pistons at any time. If your belt breaks, there will not be any valve damage. There are reliefs cut into the top of the pistons that allow clearance for the valves if the belt breaks. Most engines are interference and will cause several hundred or even thousands of dollars of damage when a timing belt breaks. Most shop manuals list the ZX2 as interference but it is not. Many people seek out this how-to because a mechanic has informed them that they have valve damage and quoted a repair price over $1000.

SOURCE: 03 jetta tdi timing belt broke

The number of miles is not relevant, because in 7 years of driving, obviously it was mostly highway miles and caused little wear.

It only takes about an hour to try just changing the belt. You need to buy a belt anyway. So it is always worth the attempt.
Most VW's have small depressions in the pistons for the valves, to prevent anything serious.

But no, I do not believe the TDI even is an interference fit.
Only the DOHC GTI engine was even close. I do not believe the TDI had a dual cam version, nor was any Jetta dual cam. And it is only with dual cam that the valves hit, because they are on such a hemisherical angle.

Timing Belt Broke approaching stop sign. Would not start could not dianose but mechanic dianosed 2006 KIA Rio @ 90,000 miles.Towed home and plan to do myself. Any particular problems to look forward to . ...

the timing belt is not something easy to do if its your first time because If the timing belt broke that means the Valves are bent by the pistons going up and you will need to check the Valves on the head before you put in any new belt, If not then that car will never run. And I think you will need some help with that kind of job and right tools. Good luck bro

Timing belt broke and should i put a belt on or is it junk does it usually bend valves

If the timing belt snapped, try to open ur valve cover, on top of ur engine, turn /rotate ur CAMSHAFT PULLEY and look at the valve if it still follows ur camshaft, going up and down. If it just been stuck and can't roate ur camshaft u have bent VALVES! Either u replace the entire valve set or u could buy in the junkyard the WHOLE CYLINDER HEAD assembly! Its ur choice, wutever is more cheaper! Then replace the timing belt, tensioner bearing and the head gasket! Next time, follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance period of 70,000km to replace timing belt! Hope that helps u out! Taah! i mean... Meow!

Broken timming belt

You do need to get the cams lined up and the crankshaft at top dead center. Though, if the belt broke, you may have bent some valves because this is an interference fit motor, meaning that if the timing belt breaks, some of the valves are left open far enough to where the pistons come up and hit and bend them, so the valves are stuck open.
