Remove the broken belt. locate the belt shaft where it needs to be replaced. place the belt on top of the shaft. slide on gently and make sure that there is no water or oil on the belt. punch belt in place. wipe with towel that is dry. make sure the belt is secured by pulling the top. turn on, test out

My timing chain has snapped


I assume it's your timing belt, not a chain, which rarely, if ever snap. Depending on the make of the car and the engine you may, or may not, have serious engine damage.. DO NOT ATTEMPT to start the car, have it towed to your shop of choice. If there is no engine damage a timing belt replacement generally will run you 2 or 3 hundred bucks...if you did serious engine damage you may have to decide if the car if worth the money to have it repaired. What you need to know is whether your car has an "interference" or "non-interference" type engine.. In an interference type engine if the timing belt breaks the valves will "interfere" with the pistons as they travel up if the timing belt breaks, which results in generally catastrophic engine failure.. non-interference engines generally suffer little or no engine damage with a broken timing belt.. I broke a timing belt on my 1990 Toyota Supra going 70mph, but it was a non-interference engine and after having the belt replaced it was fine.. here is a good list someone put together on what type of engine is in your car.. you should find the engine type either marked on the engine or on a label under the hood, or the owners manual.. good luck. http://yourcarangel.com/2014/07/interference-engines-complete-list/

Timing belt keeps breaking


Apparently there is a tensioner that is not keeping the belt taught and it is not centered correctly on the pulleys. Or the pulley itself could be cracked warped or nicked.. Check out all the components carefully. A small nick or crack can cause the belt to chafe and run off the pulley and snap.

What makes the fan belts squeal?


New belts need to be readjusted as they stretch unless you have a spring loaded belt tensioner.

usually when the timing belt snaps it damages the valves also you have to get the head valves checked for damage if they are damaged its $$$ you have to replace if the head is not broken also
if so
you need to replace the valves
valve guaides
valve seals
and get it valve grinding

it has to go to a workshop dont try to crank the engine again as if something saved will be saved
but if you keep trying you can damage more parts

My timing belt snapped and I took it to a mechanic. he said that the belt snap the piston head and the bent the valves. I am wanting second opinion, and would like to know if the timing belt is connected...


The pistons will hit and bend the valves if the timing belt snaps because they are very close.The alternator does not connect to the timing belt, there is a separate belt that runs the alternator.

I have a Renault Megane 1.4 2000 model the timing belt has not snapped but the teeth on the belt have broken away which in turn will not allow the timing belt to rotate. Would this be just as bad as the...


Yes it is as bad as the belt snapping, if your lucky there will be cutaways in the pistons so the valves may not have touched, its a bit tricky to check until you replace the belt and can check valve clearances and cylnder compressions,
or remove the head and check.
If you replace the belt it is often recommented to replace any bearings and pulleys as well, as a tight bearing may be the initial cause.

My lanos snapped its timing belt and i have replaced it but it is still running a little ruff its like its putting and verry sluggish


it sounds like the timing is off
when you replace a timing belt after it has snapped you risk internal engine damage-i would start by checking the timing-the belt may be on wrong-if that is not the problem you may be looking at a new engine
