SOURCE: Timing Belt Problem-6 cylinder Saturn wont' start

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.

SOURCE: timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3

Hello mawbea: My name is Roger I will answer your question. You did not say which engine is in your car. So if you have a 2.0 SOHC engine. If the belt broke you should be Ok. If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are just about a guarantee. How ever with any engine using a timing belt it is possible to bend a valve.Should you need more help please just ask.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received helpful information.Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger

Does a citroen dispatch 1.9 have a non interference engine

It has an interference engine. A broken or slipped timing belt will send the pistons into the valves causing severe engine damage.

So the answer is no.

Hi Gdw, I would have liked you to have given more details, such as, is the sound from start up and through the rev range, or does the knocking sound come at a certain rev range. I'm suspecting that the timing belt may have jumped and the valves are coming into contact with the pistons. The second suggestion is that combustion is escaping through a broken glow plug. If the injection timing has jumped and is out of phase that would also give a knocking sound. I think it would be advisable for you to have the valve and injection timing checked very urgently. It could be a tappet which has become loose, but as they are shimmed I doubt that could happen, unless a shim was not fitted correctly. Regards Johngee10

Can anyone advise, I have a 2002 1.9 citroen dispatch. Engines starts first time, runs for 30 seconds then cuts out, starts after several attempts a few minutes later...could it simply need a service?

sounds like an air leak on the suction side of the fuel system, does it have a primer pumb/rubber bulb ? if so give it a pump until it is "solid" and see if it starts and runs. The time it runs is what I would expect for the fuel in the pump to last for, on older Citroens with a plunger type primer on top of the filter the diaphram in the pump develops a leak with time and gave exactly this symptom.

I have a citroen dispatch and a warning light on the dash keeps coming on, it looks like a shower head, what is this?

Hi, i'm pretty sure that it's the warning light to tell you to drain the water trap on the bottom of the diesel filter.
Hope that helps Matt...
