Your engine is free-wheeling but valve to valve contact can occur if camshafts are rotated independently.

If the timing chain just skipped a few teeth will it damage the heads with continuously trying to start it?

Urgently change the chain, it will cause wreckage in the engine!

Do not crank it, it will cause the engine cycle rotation and damage it.

My timing chain has snapped

I assume it's your timing belt, not a chain, which rarely, if ever snap. Depending on the make of the car and the engine you may, or may not, have serious engine damage.. DO NOT ATTEMPT to start the car, have it towed to your shop of choice. If there is no engine damage a timing belt replacement generally will run you 2 or 3 hundred bucks...if you did serious engine damage you may have to decide if the car if worth the money to have it repaired. What you need to know is whether your car has an "interference" or "non-interference" type engine.. In an interference type engine if the timing belt breaks the valves will "interfere" with the pistons as they travel up if the timing belt breaks, which results in generally catastrophic engine failure.. non-interference engines generally suffer little or no engine damage with a broken timing belt.. I broke a timing belt on my 1990 Toyota Supra going 70mph, but it was a non-interference engine and after having the belt replaced it was fine.. here is a good list someone put together on what type of engine is in your car.. you should find the engine type either marked on the engine or on a label under the hood, or the owners manual.. good luck.

Does a 2007 gmc acadia have an interference or non interference engine

To answer your question, Almost all cars (not all of them) with an interference type engine where made up to 1992. Since that time all other engines are of the NON-Interference type including yours. The difference between the 2 is that when the timing belt broke, the interference type engine would totally self-destruct and destroy itself as there wasn't always enough room between the valves and the pistons. I hope this helps.
Good Luck!

Timing jumped and the car stopped,i turned the engine and it was free spinning,does this mean the head is messed up

There are two types of engines in this regard--interference and non-interference. Many newer engines are now interference types to increase performance, but this means that the pistons can hit the valves causing major damage when the timing belt breaks. Non-interference engines will suffer no real damage when belt breaks, so you need to get the engine type from under the hood on a data plate and google search your exact engine. Good luck.

Does a 2008 4runner have an interference engine?

Vehicles with "interference engines" will catastrophically damage the engine valves if the timing belt fails, instantly. The VIN and owner's manual may be able to tell you which type you have. From what I've seen, yours is not that type.


Why take a stranger's word for it?? You should have your VIN ready when you call the local Toyota Dealer's service department. They will be able to determine which engine you have with no uncertainty and tell if it is indeed a non-interference engine or not. Plus, they'll be able to tell you at which mileage the belt should be replaced.

Good luck!

If timing belt rips while car is running will it affect the ingine?

Depends on the car. All Toyota engines are not interference type engines, most others are interference types except a select few. Some of the engines were more forgiving than others. If it' a 2.4 mitsubishi, it's an interference engine, and a broken timing belt will cause bent valves, punching holes in the pistons, and the motor will need to be rebuilt/replaced.
