After a lot of research, it appears the problem you have is the new timing belt installation. The car can appear to run fine but being 1 or 2 teeth off will throw a check engine light with an error code of P0341. Since you've already replaced the sensor, the timing belt would be the only variable causing your engine fault. There's an excellent article addressing your problem here: P0341 Volkswagen .

Was driving on freeway about 65 miles hr my 1998 dodge neon just shut down not hot no check engine light came on no nothing like i ran out of gas but it didnt gas pump working and its getn fuel the timing...


When the timing belt breaks the pistons still go up and down but unfortunately the valves are not getting out of the way of the pistons which results in bent valve stems. Replacing the belt without replacing the valves is only half a job and it will not start because there will be no compression in the cylinders.. You will have to pull the head and fix the valves first.

2000 hyundai accent timing belt broke. absolutely no noise when belt broke


No, you won't hear it, it will happen same instant as the belt breaking.
Try to find a head from a low mileage unit, if at all possible. Pull your head off first, and check the top of pistons for damage. If the pistons and lower end are alright-spin it around by hand several times and listen for noise- then go for the used head.

And after i fixed the timing belt it started to vibrating and what is the problem now?


I know it's a pain go back and pull the cover and make sure the timing marks are perfect. The belt should have been changed about 60,000 miles. If you changed the belt because it broke or jumped timing the valves hit the pistons bending the valves and or putting a hole in the piston or pistons. From what I read the Honda engines are interference engines so if the engine was running or you went to turn the engine to line up the marks you could have bent a valve. Hopefully you are just one tooth off. If this helps please rate it. If you have more questions let me know

This is a 4cyl diesel Beetle. The timing belt broke while driving. Dealer claims no damage done, replaced belt and car was driven for a few weeks. Began to start a bit sluggish, dealer said glowplugs...


my books show it as a interference engine in which case valve damage is most likely to occur
however if that was the case , it would be having a miss from the start and would not run 2 weeks before something happened
if a valve spring breaks there could be valve piston contact but it is doubtful if that would destroy the engine but again breaking valve springs is rather rare on diesel engines
the engine would not just quit but would rattle and bang it's head off then develope a big noisy miss from a hole in the piston
so I suspect a timing belt problem from when they removed/replaced the head after the glo-plug fix or a crank/cam shaft position sensor or wires ( possible faulty connections for the cam shaft)
I would suggest finding an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote for engine repairs

CAR STALLED. DISCOVERED TIMING BELT HAD BROKEN. REPLACED BELT. STILL WILL NOT START BUT WILL TURN OVER


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

Will the valves will connect with the piston if the timing belt broke?


I'm assuming you meant if the timing belt broke would the pistons hit your valves? 2 parts to this, #1 if your belt just broke you should be fine, #2 if your belt skipped time significantly (highly improbable) only then would your internal components have a chance of hitting each other from components trying to open and close at improper times. This could damage both intake/exhaust valves, other valve train components and even damage the head of your pistons.

I have a '93 Acclaim with the Mitsubishi 3.0L V6. The car has 115,000 miles on it. The original timing belt (and water pump) were replaced at 60,000 miles. A repair shop just told me the engine was...


GOOD IF YOU COULD FIX IT YOUR SELF.OR TAKE IT TO ANOTHER MECHANIC.IF YOU COULD FIX TIMING BELT THEN DO A COMPRESSION AND A CYLINDER LEAK DOWN TEST AT EACH CYLINER WITH CLOSED VALVES.VALVE COVERS NEEDS TO BE OFF BEFORE YOU CAN SEE VALVE CLOSED POSITION.IF AIR BLEEDS MORE THAN 40% YOU HAVE BENT VALVES YOU WILL HEAR AIR GUSH AT INTAKE OR OUT EXHAUST PIPES.YOU KNOW VALVES BEEN.I REMEMBER I HAD 1977 CHEVY MONZA TIMING BELT BROKE.BY GOOD LUCK AND GODS WILL DIDNT DAMAGE VALVES NOR PISTONS PUT NEW TIMING BELT ON ENGINE RAN FINE.WHEN MY TIMING BELT BROKE ALL MY PISTONS WAS MIDWAY OF THE ENGINE.THAT SAVE MY VALVES AND PISTON. LIKE I SAY DO BOTH TEST FIRST THEN YOU WILL KNOW IF ENGINE DAMAGED.

Timing Belt broke while driving my 96 Toyota Rav4, 2 wheel drive. Mechanic said that Rav has a zero tolerance engine and engine will need to be replaced. The timing belt has 55,000 miles on it and we were...


Zero tolerance means the valves may have hit the piston when the timing belt broke. I would suggest doing a cylinder leakage test to see if the valves are bent or not. If the valves are not bent then you can replace the belt and everything will be ok. If there are bent valves then the cylinder heads will need to be removed and repaired.

the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
your engine is an interference engine, which means if the timing belt breaks or skips, the valves will hit the pistons.
if your belt broke you will have bent valves. so the heads will need to come off and bent valves replaced.

1997 honda prelude h22a4 timing belt


I do not think the original problem even matters at this point since the engine is probably broke with valves running into pistons.. when you fix it replace every thing that is broken.. and .. just getting in there and replacing the belt can alert you to any additional coming problems like the bearing going bad in the tensioner.. always check or replace the tensioner if there is any doubt as to its condition.. good luck.
