If this is the 2.4L engine then it is an interference engine and will bend valves and/or cause damage to the cylinder head should the timing belt fail.

How to find out if the timming belt beroken


while cranking the engine over if the motor sounds like there is no compression and spins over easily, chances are good the timing belt is broken. some engines are interference engines meaning that if the belt breaks the valves could hit the pistons causing engine damage. the way to check this out is after a new timing belt is installed correctly do a compression check on it to see if the compression is correct.

Engine won't start distributor won't turn


no your timming belt broke!!! now if you have a interference engine you will need a new car!!!
the only way to know is if you search your year make and engine size of your car..
you better hope its a non interference engine .. than just change the belt.. good luck. this is a basic timming belt photo . engine-start-distributor-turn-rbr12kxjqsqvwnu2khrshnjz-4-0.jpg

My timming belt broke and i replace it and i only can compression on the number 3 clyinder what do i need to do


your Daewoo has an interference engine, when the timing belt brakes the valves hit the top of the pistons, and get bent. you will need to remove the cylinder head an replace the valves.....sorry.

My timing belt finally went out and was wondering if i did any damage to my engine


normally when this happens the damage will mainly be bent valves wich will cause car to loose compression and not start unless you do head job.only way to know is try and do compression test after timming belt is done but then you will have to take timming off again i would take head off when changing timming belt..

TIMMING BELT IS THE ENGINE INTERFERANCE?


Hi:
Yes, this engine isn an interference engine, and your valves will get ruined if your timing belt breaks. It is money well spent to replace it , and don't forget to have the water pump and tensioner replaced at the same time!

Timing mark location and set up for t-belt, engine broke t-belt, just replaced head assy


TIMMING BELT MARKS
NEED MORE INFO ON ENGINE 4 CYL OR 6 CYL
ALSO IF YOU JUST REPLACED THE HEAD ASSEMBLY MEANS YOU BENT THE VALVES WHEN THE BELT BROKE. TIMMING MARKS ARE DIFFERANT ON MANY MAKES PURCHASE A CHILTON MANUAL FOR THE YEAR AND MAKE OF YOUR CAR THESE MANUALS ARE GREAT AND TAKE THE GUESS WORK OUT OF THE TIMMIMG MARK ISSUE

2001 Toyota camry 2.2 L 4 cyl engine timming belt replacement


The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.
