SOURCE: timing belt broke changed it engine is missing. could it be

The easiest way to test this is to carry out a compression test. This test will determine if any valves are bent. The test is very easy to carry out. 1.obtain a compression tester. 2. remove all spark plugs. 3. screw tester into spark plug hole. 4. with your foot on the accelarator, crank engine. 5. read the tester reading and write it down. eg. cyl 1 175psi cyl.2 170psi etc. if you have a bent valve one cylinder will be very low compared to the rest.

SOURCE: timming belt broke is it easy to replace my self

THIS CAR USES WHAT IS CALLED AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE, THIS MEANS IF THE BElT BROKE WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE BENT THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES, VERY REARELY THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN SO PUT A NEW BLET ON AND CHECK THE COMPRESSION, IF U HAVE NO COMPRESSION OR LOW YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE CYLINDER HEAD REMOVED AND THE VALVES REPLACED, U MAY ALSO HAVE BROKEN A PISTON CROWN AS WELL, THE NORMAL CHANGE INTERVAL FIOR THE TIMING BLET IS 120,000 MILES, SO IF IT BROKE BEFORE THAT CONTACT CHRYSLER THEY MAY PROVIDE SOME ASSISTANCE WITH THE REPAIR COST.

SOURCE: replace timing belt

Yes, you still need to check for valve damage, but check with a compression test of the engine. Any problems within will be revealed by the compression test. Don't pull the head off until you have to. When the belt breaks on an interference engine, just a small turn of the crankshaft can cause a piston to strike a valve.

Would there be a noise / sound if the valves bend during this time??? I Lost all Power to my Car and just pulled it off the road, and my mechanic told me my valves were bent. he took everything off and...


Sounds like the Timing belt broke while the motor was running, the engine would have died when that happened unless you busted a cam shaft. if the Timing belt was broken and it happened while the motor was running there is a 90% probability that you bent every valve in the head assembly from contact with the pistons.

The Timing belt broke on my 1995 mercury mystique I was looking for a manuel to fix it. thank you


This can be a big problem if it is a Non Interferrance Motor, meaning that when your timing belt broke you engine basically free wheeled during slow down. This can bend the intake and exhaust valves, extended cranking on motor trying to get it to start after the belt breaks can also cause this. You can get a Chiltons manual to have a guide in replacing the timing belt, i can say i know the motor in your car is a dual over head cam engine. These can be a little more difficult to do if you have never replaced a timing belt. May be best to take it to a professional that can test the head and make sure that no valves are bent before you pay for the belt and timing tensioner.

Is the 2.0 a interference motor.


The older ABA engine code is not an interference motor. If the belt broke at low RPM there should be no problems. I have replaced a number of broken belts with no problems, but have heard there may be issues at high engine speeds.

The timing belt broke and bent the heads, how do i remove the old one and can it be fixed?


these are not a free spinning motor, if the timing belt has broken & the pistons have hit the valves & bent them, then you are up for major dollars, it can be fixed but it cost & it is not something you could do in the backyard as it will require someone with good mechanical knowledge & an engineers shop to replace the bent valves.
Sorry for the bad news

You do have valve damage, but engine would not have to be replace, worst case only bent valve would have to be replace, to do this cylinder head will have to be remove to repair.

Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Timming belt broke at 65mph


7 year old vehicle.

If the timing belt broke it means the pistons have hit and bent the intake/exhaust valves ! You need of consider the cost of repair verses getting another vehicle.
These are the choices.
1) Rebuild the engine. Remove head, replace valves/guides gasket, intake/exhaust manifold, fuel injectors, air breather, etc etc labor $$$ !
2) Replace engine - remove old engine remove intakexhaust manifold, air conditioning, radiator, battery etc, etc labor $$$.
3) Sell the vehicle for what you can get and get another one $$$.

You will have to decide which is the cheapest in terms of money and your time.
