I think what you mean, is the cylinder head in-take or exhaust valve's are bent, yes, you need to have the cylinder head mill, after the bent valve's are replace, and a new head gasket installed.Hope this was very helpful.

I have a 2004 Dodge NEON with an interference engine that the timing belt broke on. What are the chances of valve damage and about how much does that cost to fix?


The valves will be bent and you will need a head job done. The time to do the job outside head reconditioning would be around 4 hours labour and the parts will include valves, head gasket kit, timing belt, adjuster pulley, and if the job is done properly crankshaft and cam shaft seals as oil is the main cause of belt failure.

My 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse wont pass emissions because trouble code P1390. I dont know what this means? Ive researched it everyway I know? My check engine light wont come on at all? Help anyone? Thanks!


This is the direct definition of this code
Mitsubishi DTC P1390 - Timing Belt Skipped 1 Tooth or More.
Probable Causes,
-Timing belt improperly installed
-Camshaft position sensor improperly installed
-Camshaft position sensor connector improperly connected
-Crankshaft position sensor connector improperly connected
-Camshaft's relative position not relearned after one of the following have been serviced: Camshaft, Camshaft sprocket, timing belt tension-er, cylinder head, head gasket, crankshaft sprocket, crankshaft cylinder block or the PCM.

Sounds like something to do with the timing belt it self. You can go to any Autozone or Checker and ask for a code reader (they will let you use it for free) and it will show this code again. You can also reset the cars computer with the code reader to see if it comes back with the same code.

Timing belt went out on 1999 hyundai elantra


hi from uk the elantra engine is an interferance engine that means that should the cambelt fail whilst engine running there is most likely the valves will come into contact with pistons result will be bent valves whichmeans cyl head off and new valves/head gasket/ timing belt and tensioner consider this ? if your engine has high milage but ran ok prior to this failure ? it will be worth repairs as above however best to remove cyl head and inspect damage 1st ? if only damage to valves usually 3 or 4 renew them all and reseat new h/gasket etc you will get good result so all depends on investigation of damage ?

Wow, hope all this was not done to fix this problem? If the problem showed up after the timing belt, I would say the timing belt is a tooth off. If it broke a timing belt, a valve might be bent. If all this was done to solve this problem, you need to find a better mechanic to diagnose it.

Replaced timing belt, but van will not start?


It is possible that this is a zero clearence engine. Meaning that the valves can hit the pistons if the cam timing is off or the timing belt breaks. I would strongly suspect that you have bent valves. This can easily be diagnosed with a compression test. If valves are bent the repair will require at least a rebuilt cylinder head and gaskets. It is also possible that there could be piston damage as well. The reason it is not starting is it has no compression due to bent valves.

the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
your engine is an interference engine, which means if the timing belt breaks or skips, the valves will hit the pistons.
if your belt broke you will have bent valves. so the heads will need to come off and bent valves replaced.
