Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

Timing chain


bent push rods could have been caused when the chain broke and not from the chain been replaced wrong or the timing out.

if the engine was running when the chain broke the cam would have stopped leaving all the valves in the same positon as the mometum of the fly wheel continued to turn the pistons in the cylendars could hav come up and hitting the valves and bending the push rods. and or damaging the cylendar head.

recommend removing the head and have it checked for damage, as well as replacing the bent push rods, and cylendar gaskit. once the head is checked and the valves are seated well. then replace and follow instructions in the set up for the pistons and cam prior to replacing the chain and setting the timing.

I hope this was helpful.

The chain tensioners got loose ,maybe &

because they are plastic & that is what they do
So off came the chain

Timing chain broke ~ drove car all day and was very sluggish and would not go over 50. Drove it to dealer and parked it, they went out the next morning to start it and it wouldn't start and they said...


There is no way on this earth that you would be able to drive a car with a broken timing chain. The engine would stop immediatly if the chain broke and there would probably be some very expensive collateral damage as well. Any timig chain can be replaced, but it may include replacement of things like tensioners, guides, sprockets, several valves and possibly even pistons - basically a complete engine overhauls.

Turns over but won't fire


well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine

Broke timing chain replaced it now it will not start and has no c


if you are sure the chain was installed correctly then you have bent valves, my bet is on the chain install.

Eninge knock with a known cam gear problems.


i had the same problem. had a knocking on the engine and let the vehicle sit until i had time to look for the problem. my unknowing mom took the car without permission and the car broke down on her. as it would turn out the upper timing guide rail broke off and damaged the cam gears and broke the upper timing chain along with damaging both the right and left lower chain guides, and the tensioner was also damaged. i would recommend that u inspect the lower chain to make sure that everything is good.
