There is no way of knowing unless you pull off the heads. I suggest u replace the timing belt as you need to do this anyway and test your compression. It may not have done any damage if it has you need to remove the head and the ovious

Well this eng bend vavles if 8 notchs off

No year make model or engine size. But no tolerance is very close on how many teeth it can jump. So far I have only seen 3 and the engine wasn't trashed. The others were belt broke or teeth on belt were torn off. Do a compression or leak down test.

I need a complete fuse box diagram of a 2002 VW cabrio. My blinkers don't work and there seems to be a lot of things going on with the electrical.

This sounds much like bad connections somewhere, and possibly at the battery. Is the battery fully charged and always starts well? Are all body grounds clean and tight? You are losing juice somewhere. Can you use jumper wires and amp gauge to test at the flasher?

TCar stopped dead .....timing belt broke on 2002dodge

Sorry for this bad news but if the timing belt broke or jumped then you will need to pull heads due to bent valves.
When the timing belt breaks it leaves valves open or throws the timing off which causes the pistons to come up and hit and bend valves,
the only way to know how much valve damage and to repair is to remove the cylinder head or heads and see.

I have a 2001 VW Cabrio that has been sitting for about two weeks until I could get the radiator leak fixed. However, after fixing the leak, I am now not able to start the car. I had it running about a...

Need to know what engine you have.

2.0ltr Gas, TDi 1.9ltr Diesel or 1.8t. turbo gas.

Normally the Cabrio comes with a 1.8t.

If so , on this engine it is particularly difficult to diagnose a no start without a scanner hooked up the car. Most common catastrophic failure is the Timing Belt stripping it's teeth and loosing time, apart from the damaged it causes.

Other common problem with that engine flooded with fuel, a common problem if the engine was started and shut off without warming up..

Try throttle all the way open while you crank on it for about 20 seconds at a time. This will clear the gasoline from the cylinders and it may start.

it has a busted belt or chain you can remove the timing cover on top or sometimes there is a plug on the cover you can remove to see if the cam is rotating i hope this is not a interferance engine kang kang kang may be vavles bending in that case you will have to pull the head and fix the bent val.

Can a bad water pump take out the timing belt

certainly. if the water pump is run by the timing belt like most are then if it locked up it would ruin the belt and if the belt breaks it can bend vavles and cause a world of problems if its an interference engine
