Most engines now are what is called an interference engine this means that the if the timing belt breaks the camshaft may leave one of the valves open causing it to be bent as the crankshaft continues to turn as it comes to a stop, piston comes up and hits the open valve.

Water pump barring went out on my 1997 rav4. I heard it knocked the pistons into the values? Is that possible?


The water pump is driven by the cam belt and on some vehicles with an interference engine if the water pump failed and cause the cam belt to break then it could cause internal engine damage. Your 1997 Rav4 water pump is driven by the cam belt but is not an interference engine. So, not to worry as no damage has been done. Just replace the water pump and cam belt and all should be well.

MY 1997 TOYOTA RAV4 HAS ENGINE LIGHT ON, IT IS ACTUALLY USED I BOUGHT IT TODAY WITH ALMOST 181,800KM CAN IT COME ON IF TIMMING BELT HAS NOT BEEN CHANGED OR IF THIER IS SOME LEAK IN GAS TANK OR SOMETHING


The check engine lightwill turn on when the engine and/or transmission control module finds a concern. The sellers may have had the light turned off just before they sold this vehicle, knowing there was a problem. No, it doesn't monitor timing belts, or leaks in the engine, but will turn on if there is an evap leak in the purge system. Autozone usually scans check engine lights for free.

Timing belt broke


That Can Only Be Determined After Replacing the Timing Belt Or Removing the Head, It has Been MY Experience that About 20% DO Have Valve Damage. This is Aftet MY 30 Years As A Mech/Tech. I Normaly Advise Customer Of the Chances And R&R Timing Belt and as I Say Toyota Is Better than Honda About NOT Tapping Valves when jumping Time.
