2001 pt cruiser 2.4L wife doing 15 miles an hour. timing belt broke. everyone is saying the dealer and alot or shops are lying. That i should be fine with putting a belt on and not have valve or piston...

Try replacing your belt, dont listen to the shops. No way to know for sure but to try it. The piston cant hit the valves, but some of the valves can hit each other if the timing belt breaks. But you may or may not have damaged the valves.

But I would replace the timing belt and try it before I tried anything else. Change the belt and give it a try. I mean if you can do it yourself. If you get a Chiltons manual from Oreillys it will tell you exactly how to chage it. DONT GET THE HAYNES MANUAL FROM AUTOZONE, CHILTONS MANUALS ARE MUCH SUPERIOR.

I purchased a 2001 Pt Crusier of which the timing belt broke and they told me the engine was damaged due to it breaking during operation. I was also told it had no compression on two cylinders due to this...

timing this motor is a real bear, just did it to my 01 pt,but when done right it will hold 150-160 lbs in each cyc. I had to get a free print out from autozone,just make sure that the cam gears are a half or gear off, the print out will show all details needed.

Does the vals hit the piston if the the timing goes on a 2001 pt cruiser 2.4 motor

Your engine is - Water pump driven by timing belt and a Interference engine application, yes you can bend valves if your timing belt breaks

2001 pt cruiser dont start after doing timing belt

If the car never had this staring fault earlier to changing of the belt . then you must remove and check again the timing settings.
This is very important so as not to damage key components with a wrong settings.

I am unable to replace my timing belt on my 2001 PT Cruiser I have 120,000 miles on my car.....Can it make it to 122,000??? I am trying to get the money together as we speak........Do you know???

some people dont bother to change the belt at all(NOT RECCOMMENDED) so, as long as you dont redline it in every gear,it could go on for a lot longer(i hope...)

The timing belt in my 2001 pt cruiser is broken. Did this cause any damage to the engine? or do we just need to replace the timing belt

Its got damage, bent valves. replace every thing on timing belt, tensioner, pulleys, water pump. The head needs to go to a machine shop and bent valves replaced.

Timing belt on 2001 pt cruiser went

Have you installed a new timing belt? If yes then you must do a compression test on each cylinder to verify no piston/valve damage. Your motor is not a freewheeling one. Damage is most likely to occur if your belt has failed.
