Not necessarily. If you can give me your engine size (I know it's probably 4 cylinder/but please verify so I don't waste any time) I'll let you know exactly. The engines that are the reason for your question are referred to as Interference - I believe. It's either an interference engine or not - if it is, then when you're timing belt snaps, unfortunately all your valves are still going - doesn't mean you'll damage them, but means you can. A belt snapping as you're pulling out of the driveway at 3 mph - not a lot of RPM - may be lucky. Doing 85 on the interstate? More likely damage could occur. I'll double check if you verify engine size/no problem at all. All The Best, Justin McCartney 17 South Industries, LLC
Here are the pictures for the SOHC and the DOHC. If your working on a DOHC engine:
A camshaft alignment timing tool (No. T94P-6256-CH or equivalent) and a crankshaft Top Dead Center (TDC) timing peg tool (No. T97P-6000-A or equivalent) are required for this procedure.
if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck
cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool
2.0L Engines See Figures 11, 12 and 13 The
accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt
adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive
belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. Movement of
the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign
of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner
self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
