I have a 1990 Mazda MPV that had a broken timing belt (3.0 ltr.V6) I replaced the tb,water pump,new spark plugs,wires but now it idles really rough and has no power upon acceleration.


You've either not lined up the timing belt properly, or it's an interference engine, which means the valves crashed into the pistons when the belt broke. Check your tb alignment properly, and hope that's all it is.

2004 Mitsubishi Galant I want to know if my engine if they are in interference my tummy bell broke


OK, you want to know if the 2004 Galant is an interference engine, because of a broken timing belt. Your car has the 2.4L engine, and its not quite an interference engine, but its very close. A broken belt MIGHT not have damaged valves when the belt failed. Your garage should be able to look at the valve gear and see if any valves are jammed. It's also possible to look in each cylinder with an endoscope camera for any valve damage. A new belt can be fitted, and the engine turned over to test compression. If there are problems spotted, then the head has to come off and the the damaged valves replaced.

I have a problem with my 1990 ford mustang the tensioner pully locked up and broke the belt so i got a new one and now my car is idling at 2 1/2 and will not go down i have no clue what it could be vacuum,...


Odds are that the broken belt took out a vaccume line while it was flailing around,that would be the first thing that i would check for.Any hard plastic or rubber lines that are within stiking distance of the broken belt would be suspect.

Timing belt broke


The Storm does NOT have an interference engine. If the belt broke, replace it and be on your way.

Engine has no compression


when the timing belt broke it also bent the valves,hence the broken rocker arm. pull the head and see the valves are bent

2003 Mitsibushis Eclipse GS won't start?


If the timing belt is broken, chances are you would hear the pistons banging into the open valves as the engine turned over (broken timing belt means cam is not turning, and some valves will be open.).

Please reply what led up to the engine not starting, from the last time that the engine ran.

Replacing broken belts 1990 toyota pickup


I found that it is embarrassingly obvious once you get the parts and place them in position. Each belt only fits the appropriate pulley in width and length. When the belt breaks there's no visual reference (as one would have if he replaced the belts before they broke!) if the belt diagram is worn off the hood. Lesson learned; replace belts- a simple task- before they break!
