He timing belt broke. mechanic says replacement wont help because the car has over 200'000 miles on it. he says we need a new engine. do you agree?


Let's see what went on in the mechanic's head...

Timing belt broke. Likely that means your engine also has bent valves, because that's what happens when the timing belt breaks while the engine is running.

At 200k miles, likely the rings are pretty worn. Does it use much oil? How was the compression before the timing belt broke? Low?

At 200k miles, I'd be thinking that once it's open, replace the bearings, too. They're likely worn out.

Yeah, sounds like a replacement engine to me, too... Cheaper than doing everything to rebuild yours.

The Dodge Neon has an Interference engine. That means when the timing belt breaks, you likely have bent some valves. You will need to remove the head, and have the valves replaced. Best done by a qualified mechanic that knows how to replace the timing belt.

yeah, it is time to replace your cylinder, because the P300 meansRandom/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected, the P303 means Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected, the P305 means Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected.

Timing Belt broke at red light what other issues should I be concerned about for a timing belt change


The one main issue after a timing chain failure is to make sure that you don't have any bent valves. If after you replace your timing chain, you notice the car stumbling, misfiring or any sort of condition that it didn't do prior to the chain breaking, then the valves are most likely bent.

The Timing belt broke on my 1995 mercury mystique I was looking for a manuel to fix it. thank you


This can be a big problem if it is a Non Interferrance Motor, meaning that when your timing belt broke you engine basically free wheeled during slow down. This can bend the intake and exhaust valves, extended cranking on motor trying to get it to start after the belt breaks can also cause this. You can get a Chiltons manual to have a guide in replacing the timing belt, i can say i know the motor in your car is a dual over head cam engine. These can be a little more difficult to do if you have never replaced a timing belt. May be best to take it to a professional that can test the head and make sure that no valves are bent before you pay for the belt and timing tensioner.

Timing belt broke on my car. Mechanic I use says


your mechanics advice is dead on, sounds like a very solid tech. as i do not know the condition of the rest of your vehicle, i would consult with the same mechanic that gave you this advice and see what he thinks. if the rest of the car is in good shape, i may be a worthwhile repair. if its rusted underneath, close to needing brakes, etc etc you may spend this money then 6 months down the road have to spend another 1000 in maintenance. this is what needs to be considered. good luck!

Could someone please advise of the correct method of fitting a new timing belt to a 2004 Hyundai Elantra XD GL.


If you are not very mechanically inclined, timing belt removal and replacement is best left to a professional because misplacement of the crank and cam gear positions can cause the engine to run poorly or even cause damage upon starting the engine.

Timing Belt Problem-6 cylinder Saturn wont' start


If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.

Timing belt broke


That Can Only Be Determined After Replacing the Timing Belt Or Removing the Head, It has Been MY Experience that About 20% DO Have Valve Damage. This is Aftet MY 30 Years As A Mech/Tech. I Normaly Advise Customer Of the Chances And R&R Timing Belt and as I Say Toyota Is Better than Honda About NOT Tapping Valves when jumping Time.
