My car has 77000 miles. timing belt broked and did damage inside enginee. should i change all enginee or put new timing belt and change the volves.

If you are paying someone to do the work. It is cheaper most times to replace the engine. If it were mine I do the work and would fix the engine. Depends on the damage also. You wont know until you get it apart. It can scar up the piston top and be ok. If it scars up the valve seat in the head, the head is trashed. If something broke and scars up the cylinder walls to badly it is trashed

I have a slk55 2006. When Cold starting the enginee. Loud clicking noise occurred when the enginee run @ 5000r/m. Noise comes from the upper part of the enginee. Till the enginee warm up to normal temp.,...

If your revving the engine to 5000 rpm when its cold, chances are the clicking noise is your valves. Cold oil will not get to the top end for proper lubrication until the engine warms up, and running at 5000 rpm with no oil?? not good. If your treating the car like that, I can't believe it hasn't blown up yet.

305 enginee stall's

Check all your pumps on your car. Take off all the belts and go over all the pullies, if they dont spin free or spin hard then its holding your engine back. I know my engine stalled when my Smog pump gave out so not sure if that would help you but its worth a shot.
