Yes, on any vehicle if it is in motion when the belt goes out the wheels continue to be engaged and turn the crankshaft of the motor, moving the pistons up and down. If the valves are open... and they are, then as the piston reaches the top of the cylinder it will strike the valve and bend it and the rod. It will also scar the piston top. Dependent on the damage to the valve and rod a valve job may repair the issue. More often than not if the piston and valve made significant impact the whole motor will need to be rebuilt to insure the crankshaft wasnt damaged, piston punctured, or block cracked.

I've 1995 eagle talon esi non turbo 2.0 dohe I was driveing it and it stooped running it will turn over but won't start what can Ido

check the timming belt. it sounds like you have broken the timming belt remove the belt cover and make sure that the camshafts are turning when you are cranking the engine, if the belt has broken you will most likly have to remove the cylinder head and replace all the valves, when this engine brakes the timming belt the valves will hit the top of the pistons and bend the valves...good luck

Very low miles 1995 Hyundai ELANTRA 1800 cc 16 dohc. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT frequently comes on. Stop engine, retart after light goes off...sometimes goes for hundred miles and three times new timing belt...

If the timing belt keeps breaking and bending valves, the timing belt and cylinder head repair is not being done correctly. It's as simple as that. Are you changing the tensioner and idler pullies when replacing the belt? Is it timed correctly? Was the timing belt tension adjusted properly? Were the cam journals checked for damage? If not, you are asking for another belt failure.

If you want to know why the check engine light is coming on, you will have to ask your engine computer. Every time the light comes on it is storing a fault code to tell you why. You must scan your engine control module to retrieve the fault code(s) so you can get it properly diagnosed and repaired.

The timing belt keeps jumping and bending the vaules

If your timing belt keeps skipping teeth then you may need a new belt, a new automatic tensioner, or need to align the pulleys correctly before putting the belt on.

It sure sounds like one of the timing marks was not lined up when you installed the belt. Did the belt break while the engine was running? If so then it is possible that one or more valves is bent and binding on a piston. Here is a picture of the tiing marks, You have to line up 4 different marks.
