SOURCE: concern with the timing belt 1997 toyota avalon xls

The maintenance interval is 60,000 miles, but they usally last quite a bit longer before they fail.
This is a non-interference motor , meaning the valves will not hit the pistons if the belt brakes.

SOURCE: if a timing belt breaks

The answer to your question is yes this year vehicle has what is known as an interference engine there is no room for error on these types engines if the timing belt jumps a tooth or breaks you can bet there is valve damage now the head needs to go to the machine shop and have new valves installed or if you know how to do them yourself then you can do it.This timing belt also runs your water pump and in some cases if your water pump goes bad it can play heck with the timing. My suggestion to you is run a compression test on each cylinder and see if you have any compression or remove the valve cover and have some one crank the engine as look at the valves and see if they are all moving or not.

New timing belt on 98 camry with no compression???? HELP


You've either got the valve timing wrong .. or..

It may be that the pistons have hit the valves because of incorrect timing. Damaged valves will result in no compression.. This will happen on an interference engine - valves hit pistons. I don't think your car is an interference fit engine, so it may be -hopefuly - a case of incorrect timing.

The link below lists all interference engines:


Is there zero compression on 1 cylinder or all cylinders?

If a timing belt breaks on a 98 toyota camry does it mess up the valves? I have replaced my timing belt, serpintine belt, fuel pump, water pump, and cranckshaft censor. It trys to turn over but wont start...


If the timing belt broke while you were driving then unfortunately yes the valves can get messed up. The piston(s) can hit the valve(s) as it comes to the top of it's stroke. Common for valves to get bent and less common for pistons to crack.

If you installed a new timing belt, I would make sure the valve timing is set and then do a compression test.

How often do you need to change a timing belt on a 1998 camry , and what happens if it brakes


Most manuals recommend checking every 50k and replacement at 150k. If it breaks while the engine is running, especially on the road, the repair cost 4 times as much because it will most likely damage the valves and the piston heads. The Haynes and Chiltons repair manuals, both are good and available, can explain replacement and checking methods. I use the timing checks as a guide for checking the Belt/chain. If your timing is bouncing all over the place your belt/chain is probably stretched or the device meant to keep tension on it is not working properly. Some vehicles with Timing belts as opposed to chains have a tensioner built in to maintain the proper tension on the timing belt. That are also a few vehicle that employ this with a timing chain.

95 toyota camry died and turns over but wont crank


If your timing belt broke while driving, there WILL be engine damage. Valves will not be moving in response to your pistons continuing to move. I hope that it is not your timing belt. Check your ignition module, first, that's easier.

Hope this helps!

If the timing belt goes is the motor gone? on a 1995 camry


Most times when the timing belt goes it results in bending a couple of the inlet valves because the pistons are coming up as the valves are going down.

Worst case is that the valves punch holes in the piston crowns

You should remove the rocker box covers and camshafts to check that all of the valve stems can be moved or more to the point all come back up to sit at the same level proving that they are travelling straight in the valve guides.

If any of them fail to sit level they are not seating on the valve face and the engine will not run anyway, in that case you will need to take the head or heads off to do a manual inspection.

Can the valves go through the pistons if the timing belt breaks on a 2004 santa fe with a 2.7 liter? i thougth all manufacturers quit building engines like that years ago.


most all engines with a timing belt are "interference" engines and valve and or piston damage will happen. The auto industry never quit the building of interference engines. Although it would seem like a good idea. it would be a very good idea to take for granted that damage will happen if the belt breaks in your vehicle.

Need to replace timing belt on 1999 Toyota Camry.


having them changed by a certified mechanic is your best bet,Timing belts are a wear item. Most are to be changed every 60,000 miles for preventive maintenance. They may break causing expensive damage to interference engines due to the collision of valves and pistons as they go out of sync.Having them replaced at intervals is the best way to save yourself from a very costly repair.The task of the timing belt
