A timing belt failure almost always results in several bent valves at least and at most the need for a new motor. You need to weigh the value of the vehicle against the cost of the repair when making your decision. Chances are if the belt failed while driving at any kind of speed you're going to require substantial work to get the vehicle operational again. Good luck.

I have a 1999 plymouth breeze and replaced water pump and timing belt due to pump locked up and all the teeth gone off belt now. 2.0 SOHC that after setting belt and timing correctly the car wont start...

In general, backfiring indicates the cam, crank and ignition are out of time or out of phase. The timing marks on the crank and cam just line up the timing of the cam and crank. The alignment of the spark with them has to be phased at the right time too. Check the manual for how to set the distributor timing after an engine repair

Waterleak from timing belt cover

Water pump is, going or gone out. Best make sure the water is replaced daily if your going to drive it. Or the headgaskets next, & the trucks done. Make sure the water is IN THE RADIATOR" not just the overflow or reservoir container. Ive only had 1 stop leak, help get me {in emergency} from point A to B, but it didnt last long. Thats the powdered aluminum silicate? in a small 3- 4 inch tube. $1.99? You add it to hot water, & add to radiator.

Water pump has gone out three times on 96 chev corsica

Simple really, your adjusting the belt that drives it too tight, causing premature bearing failure. Install it a little looser next time around.

No tension in belt

Usually, when there is no tension in a belt, this means the belt tensioner has gone bad, or the tensioner idler pulley has gone bad. Is this a serpentine belt, or a timing belt? What is the Year, Make and Model?

1990 mitsubishi truck statred up one morning, reved up engine, then it jus died, it turns over but wont strat, i changed the coil, and cap and rotor, it still wont start,

Pull a plug wire and have some one crank the engine as you observe the end of the plug wire for spark DONT HOLD IT IN YOUR HAND WILL ITS CRANKING lay it next to metal if there is spark you will notice it arcing against the metal they do make a tester to do this but if you dont have one laying it next to metal will do. If you have no spark could be your crank sensor has gone bad if you have spark and it still doesnt start could be your timing has jumped.Have the codes extracted and see what it tells you good luck to you.

Timing belt came off on my 2002 chevy impala 3.8, what is causing this to happen?

That engine does not have a timing belt.

It does have a serpentine belt that drives the accessories like the alternator, power steering pump, water pump, and air conditioning. Some common things that will cause the belt to come off are the water pump bearing has gone bad, the a/c clutch has frozen, or the tensioner has gone bad.

My 92 pontiac sunbird won't start. It gets fual and has fire

Easiest way to check a timing belt without looking too hard: Does the engine spin over faster than normal with little or no compression? If so, belt has gone away. Dont guess when replacing it. Get a manual!!!

Accent was running fine. the next day it would not start no cranking power nothing. friend said timing belt was gone. checked on repairs and Mechanic. said $400-500 if valves not bent otherwise $1200-1500....

no if the timing belt was gone then the thing would crank but it would not start put the key in and see if you are getting power the lights on your dash should come on oil light check engine light for a few seconds if you don't have power check the batt terminals and make sure they are connected or coroded

Air condition unit bearings are gone

Don't know what engine you have, but as long as that belt only drives the AC you should be o.k. If the AC isn't noisy when freewheeling, or off, you can simply unplug the connector at the compressor, but if noisy all the time, yes the belt will have to come off, just double check that the belt isn't running anything else like water pump or something on the back (smooth side) side of the belt. Be aware that your defrost etc, will take a little longer to do it's job with that disconnected as it uses the ac compressor to displace moisture(humidity) in the air.
