Question about 1991 Honda Accord

Info about timing belt

Is the 2.2 engine in a 1991 accord wagon an interference engine, if it is how can I tell if the valves are bent? It appears that the two intake valves on one cylinder were depressed when the timing belt broke. The car is a 1991 accord wagon.

Chances are slim. Just align your marks, install a new belt and without any sparkplugs, turn the engine by hand. If anything's hitting, you'll feel it.

Always crank the motor over by hand before trying to start with key. Bent valves wont always lock the motor up, but jam up inside the head as well. Get it together and try to start it after cranking it 3 or 4 times with a ratchet, dont force anything.

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 was driving my 1991 honda accord an timing belt broke iam woorried that it might have damaged engine what should i look for i was going to replace belt an try to get back running any advice thanks


Honda engines are what they call interference engines. This means when a timing belt breaks, the pistons hit the valves and bend them. You will need to remove the cylinder head and get the bent valves replaced if you want it to run correctly. Impossible to know how many valves are bent, depends on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

not sure about timing. whaddya mean not sure? remove distributor cap. have someone crank it. if the rotor in the distributor isn't turning, you've got a busted timing belt, maybe bent valves, i'm not sure if it's a non-interference engine. Timing belt $800. bent valves=new car.

Timing belt broke


Honda accord 2.2L and 2.7L engine's are interference engine's, which if timing belt breaks it will bent cylinder head valve's, cylinder head will have to come out to replace bent valve's, also your water pump is timing belt driven not bad idea to also replace while in there, good luck, hope this was very helpful.
