Theres 3 sprokets stacked verticaly correct? the bottom shaft keyway should point straight up. the 2nd shaft keyway should point straight down. finally the top gear keyway should be pointing straight up. alittle mark on the gear teeth should match a mark on the lower gear teeth.

TCar stopped dead .....timing belt broke on 2002dodge


Sorry for this bad news but if the timing belt broke or jumped then you will need to pull heads due to bent valves.
When the timing belt breaks it leaves valves open or throws the timing off which causes the pistons to come up and hit and bend valves,
the only way to know how much valve damage and to repair is to remove the cylinder head or heads and see.

If u replace timing chain in a 2002 ford explore will the engine go bad?~~~~~~~HELP<HELP<) how much iz it to replaace?


No, it wont cause the engine to go bad. If the timing chain or belt breaks, that can do major damage to the head. It usually cost around six hundred dollars to have it replaced. If you do it yourself just the cost of parts. Here are the INSTRUCTIONS for replacing it to give you an idea of what's involved.

Timing belt broke...was told i need new engine..is this right?


The 2.4L four has a belt and is not an interference engine according to the Gates timing belt application chart for your vehicle (check it out on Gates.com.) The 2.7L V-6 doesn't show that it needs a belt--so it has either a timing chain and gears or just gears. If the belt broke on the 2.4L four, you should be able to put on a new belt and go. The engine should not be damaged.

If the timing chain on the V-6 broke then engine damage may have occurred. Chain engines are sometimes not listed as interference because breaking a chain is so rare. The damage would probably be bent valves and damaged piston tops. The labor involved in repairing all that might cost more than just getting a rebuilt engine and putting it in.

We have a 2002 Nissan Xterra SE. We're being told that the timing chain has broke & when it breaks it damages the valves. Total repair around $2500. Is this accurate???


maybe, maybe not. If the chain only slips a link, this will not happen. It depends on how it fails, and you never know exactly what the damage is until you replace the chain and try to start it. If you're sure there is SOME damage, then you go ahead and pull the head off to assess the cost before replacing the chain. The damage can range from a bent valve to busted pistons. If you have more questions, please let us know.
