SOURCE: altenator belt breaking

Is this a single serpentine belt system or a V belt with 2 or more belts running the accessories? There is an alignment issue, another bad accessorie or bad bearing (quite possibley the new alt) or as mentioned a bad idler ( if a serpentine belt setup)

How are the tensioner pulleys? Is everything in line? Do the camshaft/s spin freely?

SOURCE: I have a 1990 Lexus

One or more of the pulleys is out of line or the idler or tensioner is defective and coming apart, the best thing to do is have them all pulleys checked for misalignment to stop this, many times the crankshaft pulley separates from the rubber ring that dampens crankshaft vibrations and the pulley walks outward. It takes a trained eye to see these pulley alignment issues, suggest you have a trusted shop look at this for you. Even a slight misalignment will eat up or throw off the belt.

Either its over tensioned or the pulleys are not lined up properly .
Does it just snap or seems to rub on something and then break?

Can someone tell me if the 2005 Mazda 6 2.0 diesel 136ps has a cambelt or chain? If it is a belt when should I replace it. I'm on 116000 km's.


Filipe, Gates is a timing belt manufacturer and they recommend changing belt every 100,000 KM. This is what is known as a interference fit engine, If the timing belt were to break, it could cause extensive damage to valve train. Through some searching, recommended Timing Belt change interval is 60/75000 miles or every 72 months. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Car wont start timming belt is being cut into strips engine wont start


The belt is worn out and is disintegrating. It has probably jumped time. The reason the engine won't start. Depending on your car, Some engines are no tolerance. Meaning if you keep cranking it and the belt breaks, the pistons can slap the valves, bending or breaking them. Replace the belt.

Replaced seat belts in 2008 mazda 6 after accident and they are still locked up?


Take the shroud off the part with the release button and see what's keeping it locked up. My recommendation would be to ditch those seat belts and replace them with airplane seat belts. They are much safer and don't break.

I had my timing belt changed after breaking on my 2004 Kia Optima, it caused valve damage and my bill was $1,295.00. About 4 months later it broke again causing the whole motor to explode now the car...


On smaller engines the timing belt should be checked regularly.When the belt breaks the camshaft stops turning and valves stay open at wrong time but the pistons keep moving and come up to top of cyclender and crash into the valves causing the first bit of damage.What I think happen to cause it to break again prematurly was somthing was still bent from first time causing resistance on belt which caused belt to break second time.These engines cant take that kind of abuse once never mind twice.I dont think second belt was installed wrong to cause this.Like I said the mechanic missed somthing bent or damaged the first time.But unfourtunatly this will be hard to prove.Unless you requested and still have old parts from first time work was done and can prove that it was mechanic neglegants.Good Luck.

Is it recommended to change the timing belt on a 2006 Honda Accord 4 door V6. And what would happen if the timing belt should break? lowellshoaf@gmail.com


yes it is recommended that you change your timing belt. Some engines have whats known as a contact motor. In other words if the timing belt breaks the pistons could hit the valves and damage them to the point that the heads would have to come off. This could cost a whole lot more than replacing the belt. Also if the timing belt drives the water pump you should have it replaced at the same time. Hope this helps.Please leave comment.

Are you over tightening the belt? If I remember correctly, you should have 1/4" belt deflection after you tighten it.

Check the factory service manual: http://www.xenons130.com/reference.html

Hope this helps!
