The crysler 2.4L is not an interference engine. This means that when
your belt broke, it should not have bent any valves or damaged the head
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The timing belt broke,went to replace it, head crank wont turn

The vehicle has an interference engine. This means that when the piston can hit the valves when not in time. The valves are damaged or bent or shattered . The head or engine most likely is going to have to be replaced.

SOURCE: timing belt went out, just

Unfortunately this is an interference engine, which means that the valves will collide with the pistons when the timing belt breaks. You could do a compression test to confirm this is what happened but if you notice that the engine seems to turn over really fast and kind of sounds like a sewing machine when doing so, you likely have bent valves and the head will have to be removed for repair.

What is the timing for a 1994 mercury tracer trio. i belive i have to replace the timing belt and the water pump. im not sure tho bc the feul cut off came on first than after i filled it up it went off. im...


First check to make sure the fuel shutoff is still on. When the engine jumps timing it is usually caused by either the water pump bearings went bad and seized or fell apart. The other is when the belt is old or excessively worn and breaks. Timing marks are dependent on engine size. 1.9 engines have single cam and all marks point straight up. 1.8 is more detailed depending on if it has 1 or 2 cams.

I think the timing belt broke, do you think it bent the valves in the head? how do you find out?


You have an interference engine. The engine may or may not be damaged depending on how bad the failure was. You can either pull the head off and check for damage, or replace the timing belt and then run a compression test. A good mechanic can probably tell if there's damage by pulling off the valve cover and checking the valve range of motion, but I don't think I can explain this well enough for doing it yourself. If the compression test is good, you got lucky. If compression is not right, the head will have to come off. Let me know if you have more questions.
