New timing belt on 98 camry with no compression???? HELP


You've either got the valve timing wrong .. or..

It may be that the pistons have hit the valves because of incorrect timing. Damaged valves will result in no compression.. This will happen on an interference engine - valves hit pistons. I don't think your car is an interference fit engine, so it may be -hopefuly - a case of incorrect timing.

The link below lists all interference engines:


Is there zero compression on 1 cylinder or all cylinders?

My timing chain has snapped


I assume it's your timing belt, not a chain, which rarely, if ever snap. Depending on the make of the car and the engine you may, or may not, have serious engine damage.. DO NOT ATTEMPT to start the car, have it towed to your shop of choice. If there is no engine damage a timing belt replacement generally will run you 2 or 3 hundred bucks...if you did serious engine damage you may have to decide if the car if worth the money to have it repaired. What you need to know is whether your car has an "interference" or "non-interference" type engine.. In an interference type engine if the timing belt breaks the valves will "interfere" with the pistons as they travel up if the timing belt breaks, which results in generally catastrophic engine failure.. non-interference engines generally suffer little or no engine damage with a broken timing belt.. I broke a timing belt on my 1990 Toyota Supra going 70mph, but it was a non-interference engine and after having the belt replaced it was fine.. here is a good list someone put together on what type of engine is in your car.. you should find the engine type either marked on the engine or on a label under the hood, or the owners manual.. good luck. http://yourcarangel.com/2014/07/interference-engines-complete-list/

Is a 94 ford 2.3L engine an interference engine. will valves hit piston if the timing belt breaks


Yes, if the engine is turning when the timing belt breaks, the valves will hit the piston. This is the definition of an interference engine: the valves, when fully open, extend into the cylinder area.

Broken timing does it hit valves


A broken timing belt will allow the valves to hit the tops of the pistons if your vehicle is equipped with an "interference" cylinder head. A "non-interference" head will allow the valve train to survive a broken timing belt (or chain) incident.

What is a interference fit engine


Interference engines are those in which the pistons can make contact with the valves, and will do so if the timing belt (or chain) breaks, usually resulting in extensive damage. This is why such engines have belt replacement intervals which should never be exceeded. Non-interference engines may safely have the crankshaft rotated to any position while no timing belt is installed without pistons hitting valves. Why do we have interference engines you may ask? This is done to enhance performance by allowing longer cam opening times and higher cam lift.

I have a 96 dodge caravan with a 2.4 motor is this non interference or interference?


There are very few engines that are non interference ( from my data books regarding timing belts and chains) that you will have an interference engine. It relates to the fact that the valves will interfere (hit) with the pistons in the event of belt/chain failure

Timing belt broke . installed new one ,now auto back fire's. won't start


Did you get it timed correctly? You don't just replace them like a fan belt, there is a procedure and marks that you line up. Your engine may be a non-interference or interference which means that if your timing belt breaks your pistons may hit your valves and cause major engine damage. Non-interference means that when the belt breaks it won't interfere and cause damage. Interference means that it will. I don't know what engine you have in your car but if you call a dealer and tell them what engine you have in your car they should be able to tell you if it is a non-interference or interference engine.

Water pump barring went out on my 1997 rav4. I heard it knocked the pistons into the values? Is that possible?


The water pump is driven by the cam belt and on some vehicles with an interference engine if the water pump failed and cause the cam belt to break then it could cause internal engine damage. Your 1997 Rav4 water pump is driven by the cam belt but is not an interference engine. So, not to worry as no damage has been done. Just replace the water pump and cam belt and all should be well.
