The 2.4L is an "interface" engine. This means the vavles share the same space as the piston. When the belt breaks piston can hit valves and cause big problems. In this case, I would install or have one installed and see what happens. In other cases when belt is installed there can be no signs of damage. Its a 50/50. It would run around $200 to find out Parts and labor. Cross your fingers and good luck

SOURCE: timing belt not broke, but engine has no

You have a zero clearance engine, meaning there is no room for clearance between the pistons when they're up and the valves are closed. If the belt broke there is a high probability that the valve(s) came in contact with the pistons and caused significant damage to the valve, valves, or cylinder head.

I was driving 65mph when my car lost power. It would not restart. I have replaced the fuel pump filter and relay and it still won't start. Could it be the timing belt? Please help me figure this out. 1997...


See if the ignition still works by checking for spark on a spark plug wire. If no spark could be the ignition module or the crank position sensor.
I doubt if anything wrong with the timing belt-you would have heard a loud pop if it broke. Look inside the oil filler place on top- of the valve cover. When the engine is cranked, if belt is good you will see movement of the camshafts and the valves moving up and down.
