Depends on weather the engine is a interface engine or not.

    YES your motor is a interface motor. You may only have a couple of bent valves, you will have to pull the head to check the damage.

When to change a timing chain on 07 tundra 5.7l

Timing chains do not need replacing unless broken, or overhauling is being done.
Timing belts are changed on a regular basis of around 60,000 miles, or per manufacturer's recommendation.

It sounds like the timing is still off, which will not allow it to start, or you have a faulty cam, or crank sensor.

When do I need to change the tinming belt on my Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 l itre petrol. My car has done 54000 miles. What signs will tell me the timing belt is going

their are no signs taht you can see ,i normally say 80/90 th kms in a dry hot climate and 20,000kms more in a cooler damper climate .The belts tend to dry out quicker in a dry climate ,if you remove the covers and see cracking at the base of the teeth of the belt then is the time to start to think about changing it ,cracking on the outside is not a major problem as this can appear on a belt after a small amount of use as i have seen this after a couple of weeks of changing a belt myself

Considering buying a 94 volvo 940 gl

Hello, it sounds as if the person had an issue with the head. There is no mention of pistons, rings, connecting rod bearings, engine main bearings, oil pump. These are parts to an engine overhaul. It sounds as if they had maybe a timing belt to break and may have bent valves or either the bolt that broke off required them to pull the head off the engine to have bolt drilled out. Please rate my answer, Thank you.
