It can, but the only way to know is to replace the belt and do a compresion test, or tear down the head and inspect the piston's and valves

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.

If my timing belt goes out while driving do i need to replace the motor


No not unless it bent valves. Replace the belt first and see if the engine starts. I replaced a belt on one of these last month, the belt had snapped. It didn't bend anything. I replaced the belt and all was good.

2000 Windstar 3.8L,, If the timing belt goes, is it no clearance between the valves and pistons?


No there is no clearance, so you will bend your valves which will cost you much more to replace than a $20 timing belt plus labor.

On the talon when the timing belt goes out does it bend the valves?


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.

If the timing belt goes is the motor gone? on a 1995 camry


Most times when the timing belt goes it results in bending a couple of the inlet valves because the pistons are coming up as the valves are going down.

Worst case is that the valves punch holes in the piston crowns

You should remove the rocker box covers and camshafts to check that all of the valve stems can be moved or more to the point all come back up to sit at the same level proving that they are travelling straight in the valve guides.

If any of them fail to sit level they are not seating on the valve face and the engine will not run anyway, in that case you will need to take the head or heads off to do a manual inspection.
