    It could have bent all the valves, remove cover and check that all the valve go up and down by turning the cams by hand

Be sure to turn the motor over by hand two complete times make sure it does not bind if it does your marks are off if you turn it by the starter it will bend valves

I think my procedure belongs to the second picture posted( accords over the year 2000) the one with two timing belts, but for the 90s use the same procedure excluding all related to the small belt, good luck, always remember that dealers dont want you to get involved in any fix, they want you to take your car to them . then to apply you an astronomic and exagerated charge for their services the same happens when you need parts from them, it will cost 3 times more than what you can find in autoparts.

I think its too involved to explain on a forum like this. If you are serious about keeping the car and performing your own maintenance, I would buy the factory service manual from www.helm.com . About $100. Well worth the money. The labor for just that one job will be probably 2 or 3 times that. Be careful, because some Honda'a are interference fit and the pistons can hit the valves and bend them when the timing belt breaks while the engine is running.

    nothing from another world, first remove the spark plug of cilinder # 1 (the one closer to you) so using a long screwdriver you can feel when piston is at the topmost position leaving the piston # 1 is the same that sinchronizing the crankshaf by its marks, in this case you need no timing mark on the pulley) make shure to be the most accurate possible while you turn the crankshaft with wrench cause it wont accept a single teeth error, once the crankshaft is in position go up to put the camshaft in position. you will see the letters u p ( turnit till the letters will be at top) then on both sides should be two marks that will point to both sides of engine block, the rest will be to mount the belt starting on water pump wich will be at right then crankshaft, then camshaft ( between crankshaft and camshaft on the left side of belt make shure the belt be tight and also that they dont move while you do this) the last thing to put the belt on will be the camshaft , for the second belt ( the one that drives the timing balancers0 the only thing to observe is on the laft balancer the mark must point another mark on oil pump, once installed both belts make shure to lock the tensioners bolt and that both belts are tight. (not in excess because if they are extra tight they will scream, good luck. warning : if camshaft and crankshaft are wrong sinchronized there is a big risk of valve damage by been hited by piston and bended....

Odds are you bent valves anyway and if it didn't, when you do the belt, if it's not exact, then stand that chance; Either way I believe you are over your head on this. Tow it to a shop and have them handle it

If your timing belt broke while driving 40mph odds are your valves hit the pistons, these are interference motors. once you have the belt put on immediately compression test the motor.

Timing belt


Nancy, the Honda recommendations are to change belt 100,000 Km/ 60000 miles or every 7 years which ever occurs first. So if timing belt has not been changed, YES change it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Cost to replace timing belt honda accord uslx


7 hours. at my shop $50 per hour equals $350 the high retail for the belt is $58 and it'swiseand maybe nessary to changethewater pump while the work is being done. This is for the 6 cylinder car and changing the oils seals on the oil pump and the cam shafts. The belt is supposed to be changed every 80 thousand miles and the seals and the waterpump shoould be changed too. If the belt failed ( broke) the the engine may be damged and have to be rebuilt to repair the damage or even replaced ( the whole engine). the 4 cyclinder is different. The V Tec taks 4 hours before changing the seals and the water pump. add 2 1/2 hours for that. the twin cam non v tec is about the same but if the belt isbroken all this is for not.as theengine may ( it does'nt have to be) damaged.and sometimes beyond resonable repair. ( you can fix anything if you spend enough money) If the engines damaged by a broken timing belt a good used moter installed is likly better an cheaper.

Timing belt broke


Honda accord 2.2L and 2.7L engine's are interference engine's, which if timing belt breaks it will bent cylinder head valve's, cylinder head will have to come out to replace bent valve's, also your water pump is timing belt driven not bad idea to also replace while in there, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

What is the proper way to install a timing belt on a 96 honda accord? any kind of diagram would also do.


Usually you have to be at TDC for piston #1 after the compression stroke. There will be a spot/mark/indentation on each gear. There should also be spots on the timing belt. Everything should line up.
Your engine is a 'interference fit" so if the belt breaks, or isn't installed correctly, things will start banging together and it will get real expensive to fix.
You might find diagrams here
good luck - sorry I couldn't provide more.
