For what it's worth, my info tells me it's a non-interference engine, so your o.k. but I will double check that & get back to you.

    According to "gates" who make the belts, yours is not interference.

The 1.9l engine is regarded as an interference engine. It is very possible that valve damage has occured. In most cases with bent valves, you can replace the valves and all should be O/K. Unless severe damage has happened.

If the timing belt on a 94 toyota camry broke, would it bend the valves in the head 4cyclinder


The pistons will hit the valves on a lot of cars, but you should ask your Toyota dealer service dept for sure.
Hope this helps.

Does a broken timing belt automatically mean bent vales?


No you don't always bend valves typically with 4 or 6 cylinder engines are equiped with free floating engines that when the chains or belts break it allows the engine from creating greater damage to other parts of your engine

I broke my timing belt on a 1994 mightymax and want to know if i can just put new belt on or did i bend valves


no they dont clear they hit the piston. it all depends on how fast the engine was running to how much damage has been done. sometimes it can just be a bent valve. or a set of them. or at worst the pistons are damaged. on some occasions it would just be a auto adjuster damaged you will not be able to tell till the new belt is fitted. will tap alot.

TCar stopped dead .....timing belt broke on 2002dodge


Sorry for this bad news but if the timing belt broke or jumped then you will need to pull heads due to bent valves.
When the timing belt breaks it leaves valves open or throws the timing off which causes the pistons to come up and hit and bend valves,
the only way to know how much valve damage and to repair is to remove the cylinder head or heads and see.

Do the valves bend on the 1993 eagle summit 2.4 when timing belt breaks


yes they can. sometimes you'll get lucky if it broke while starting, most times they bend when belt breaks while driving.

The car has power. When I turn the ignition it won't start. It just whines but won't turn over, Can you help?


maybe your timing belt broke.if you say all it does is whines,then it sounds to me like timing belt issues.you should not continue to try and start it because if it is your timing belt that is broken,by you trying to start it,can damage your valves and bend your push rods which will cost you a lot more than just having the timing belt replaced.i hope this information helps.take care and good luck, manny

We have a 1994 Suzuki Side kick in for work and the timing belt broke on it. We would like to know if the valves bend when this happens.


nearly or perhaps all of the suzuki side kick engines are "Interference Engines" .. that means when the timing belt breaks, if the engine keeps spinning then pistons will collide with some valves that are left open .. that can damage those valves and or pistons .. that usually increases the cost of repairs .. on "clearence" type engines.. when the belt breaks you just coast to a stop with no damage done .. but high performance engines are often "interference" type .. with them its extra important to change the belt on schedule since the potential for expensive damage is great .. ..

My timing belt broke while driving at 65mph and I was wondering if this will cause the valves to bend?


Honda civic is an interference motor and a broken timing belt at 65 will bend the valves.
