    on the high way im guessing it was not broken it was still on but most of the grooves on the belt where broken off left it smooth.

    Did you have the belt replaced and the compression checked? You do have an engine that will bend valves when the belt breaks.

Aveo air bags did not deploy after accident

The SRS systems are usually designed to go off in a frontal impact. There are 2 sensors that need inertia on the same plane to make contact and set off the system. My guess is that she did not hit anything at the correct angle to set off the system. It will not deploy when hit from the sides or rear of the car. An air bag will only increase your survivability by 4% over a lap belt/shoulder harness which gives you about 44% in an otherwise fatal accident. Lesson is always wear your belts. And say a prayer to thank god she is alive.

2005 chevy aveo was overfilled with oil at the last change. It was estimated to be around 1 1/2 to 2 quarts when then the car had a major issue 4 days after the oil change. According to my mom (who was...

too much oil can cause the crankshaft or camshaft to drag which can cause the timing belt to slip.
If you are lucky replace the timing belt and start it up. It will run badly and smoke a bit but will clear, hopefully nothing collided when the belt slipped.
The timing belt is something that any competent home mechanic can change, it just takes time.
Sorry to hear about another rip off dealer.

My car was running just fine all day long and then it just stop running while i was driving they tryed the cam senser and the crank senser but that was not it now they are saying its the cam belt its broke...

If a cam or better known as timming belt breaks in any engine, it will stop right then. re-time engine and install new belt and away you go, it is a bigger process then that, i just simplified it. the person who told you about blowing up engine is refering to weather or not your engine is free-spinning or not. you see as an internal combustion engine runs, pistons go up and down and valves open and close very fast and when belt breaks the valves stop moving and pistons keep moving, if motor is whats called free-spinning the valves and pistons dont touch if your engine is not free-spinning the pistons smack the valves and thats what will damage engine beyond just a timming belt. I do not know if your engine is or is not free-spinning. I would call a couple of enigne machine shops and ask them this question before you spend any money on towing or diagnostics.

Check for power to the fan and for a good ground. If those are both present then you would need a fan. If your old fan rubbed a hole in your radiator then I would definately check to see if the fan has play in it that would case it to hit the radiator.

My aveo 04 manual wont start gets a spark ,fuel and replaced timming belt it was chewd up after car stalled on me in the high way but still wont start. gears also shift into place whats wrong?

If the timing belt became chewed up it would seem the belt/timing has slipped (do not try starting it like this bad things could happen) You'll need to replace the timing belt, tensioner and insure the proper mechanical timing is done for it to run properly if at all. If the belt failed at highway speed and it has a interference fit engine this would mean a valve or two may be bent too. I'd check the timing and once this is corrected I'd checking cylinder compression.
I hope this may have helped,

1992 honda accord running very rough and check engine light came

If the car runs fine until it warms up, then the check engine light goes on and it all goes to hell (sputtering, dying, etc...) then it is most likely the o2 sensor. Take it to autozone and have them put it on the scanner, just be sure to bring it when the check engine light is ON.

My volvo has 150000 miles when is time to change timming belt

Timing belt
For proper functioning of the engine and its emission control systems, the timing belt and belt tensioner must be replaced every 105,000 miles (168,000 km) or at 120,000 miles (193,000 km) for the 2.5T engine on AWD models. Engine damage will occur if the belt fails.
The car hasnt died yet? thats lucky

"engine damage" is a euphemism for, the camshaft will stop as soon as the belt breaks, jamming at least one valve open, the valve head will smash through the piston crown on the next piston upstroke, and large fragments of hardened steel will rattle around in the engine chewing up everything they meet untill the engine seizes
time taken ~3 seconds.

probably a good time replace it, its due to fail now even if the 105K is a conservative fail safe number
