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

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.

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.

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

Where can i find the timing marks on 1998 ford escort zx2 ?


Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
