First make sure your still in time on the timing belt, make sure you have the proper tension... if that is ok, check for fuel and spark.

Why wont my 2005 kia Rio start?


your car has an interference engine. that means if the timing belt breaks, the pistons and valves collide. best case you can have new valves put in the head and it will be okay. worst case

Timing belt slipped 2005 Kia Optima


I would change the belt and do a compression check before starting the engine. That will show any distorted valves.

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.

My Daewoo Leganza's timing belt bearing busted and i changed it and lined up all the crankshafts. Still wont start


if all you did was replace the timing belt, i hate to be the bearer of bad news, however, you have what they call an interference engine. when the timing belt broke the valves stopped, the crankshaft and pistons did not. you will have to remove the cylinder head and perform a valve job. before you start tearing thing apart, get a compression gauge and perform a compression test by removing 1 spark at a time, installing the gauge and turning the engine over by cranking it. if there is anything under approxiamately 125 psi(i think youre going to see 0psi), these repairs will be neccessary.

Changed engine but a non start


Valve Timing sounds off to me (belt driven to valves) You are assuming the timing marks on the heads AND your engine drive pulley are OK, right? Heads could be 180deg out which is easy to fix by taking off the belt at the heads and manually rotating the pulley once and retesting.

Pull a plugwire, shove a rope of twisted tinfoil into it and see if it sparks to block. If you get fire, then my very strong guess is that the spark and Gas/Air compression cycle aren't happening at the same time and the valves are 180deg out.

Wont Start


yes unfortunately when the timing belt goes on your make and model car the valves will contact the pistons however there is likely only damage to your valves and not the pistons....so you will want the mechanic to preform a compression test to confirm valve damage and then go from there if there is no compression, the valves are damaged and the head will need to be rebuilt or replaced (when the head is off you can determine if there is piston damage) in your case with an 11 year old car you may want to put a used head on it to save money. the timing belt needs to be replaced every 105,000miles or 48 months whichever comes first (info received from Haynes repair manual #30034 for 1995-1999 dodge and plymouth neon)
hope this helps........thanks for choosing FIX YA!

1. Had mechanic check timing again. Belt off a couple degrees. Should fix problem.
2. Don't know. this is my son-in-laws car.

Thanks for your reply.
