Believe your friend is right,easiest way to tell is put a belt on it tho,and hope you are lucky.You wouldn't hear the valves getting bent from the piston.

Is my 97 corrolla 1.8liter an interference engine. The timing belt jumpep and I need to know if the valves will be bent


most modern engines are interference designed. keeps the engine profile smaller for fitment in the engine bay. I have successfully straightened valves on a 2.7 V6 honda engine that snapped the cambelt. Just revved the heck out of it once the new belt was on. All ok afterwards. Did you shut down as soon as the belt jumped the cog ?

What issues can I expect if it doesn't restart?


If the belt broke you are facing bent valves in the cylinder head. If the vehicle is single over head cam.... bet on bent valves. If the vehicle is dual over head cam ... you may be ok. The dealership should be able to perform a cylinder leak down test to determine whether or not the there is a valve issue before disassembling anything.

I want to know where the timing marks is on the fiat palio weekend 1600 16v


You must have had shop manual to install cylinder head correctly. If not, you need one to get this right. Do it wrong and you will bend valves again, so invest in cheap shop manual.

Will it bend valves if cambelt snaps


it depends on the design of the engine. Some are designed so that the valves are unable to contact the pistons in the case of a cam belt snapping, others are not.

Hi. As I was driving 100 kph on my 2007 polo 1.9 TDI sportline, funny noise came from the engine. motor stopped running. I pulled over, opened the hood only to find out the v belt has been snapped


DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN THE CAR OVER, KEEP IT OUT OF GEAR SO THAT THE CRANKSHAFT DOES NOT GET ROTATIONAL FORCE OTHERWISE IT COULD CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE.You need the services of a mechanic/technician as soon as possible, if we are talking about the cambelt , the engine might be an interference engine which means that times in the engines rotational cycle the pistons and valves overlap. The cambelt, (if that is what you mean by the vbelt,) ensures that the valves are up , away from the piston when it is on the up stroke. It sounds as though your engine might have sustained some damage but this might just be some bent valve heads which can be resolved by replacing valves. Hopefully there is no more damage than this. You really need to find a decent diesel qualified engineer.

Good Luck

Vw lt46 1998 would it damage valves if timing belt


yes it will and most likely put a hole in the piston and snap the cam shaft if the engine is doing any more than idle speed, if it breaks at idle you may be lucky and just get away with a few bent valves but if im honest ive never seen anyone be lucky with one the normaly require a new engine. also worth changing the water pump at the same time as these do seize and will snap the new cam belt ! the only belt you can get away with leaving is the pump belt if this breaks no damage is caused the engine will just cut out ! however you will need to pretty much remove it after fitting a cambelt to set the timing so its pretty pointless no to change it

Corsa 14 it frose due 2 no antifreeze tried 2 start it cambelt not snapped but does seem 2 lock engine will it had damaged valves ? is it worth trying a cambelt ?it a 1996 model 16 valve .


i would say no if it froze then it has poss. cracked the cylinder head and/or block
if the engine locks up then most likely the cylinder has water or ice causing a hydrastatic lock
best advice i can give you is get a used engine
hope this helps

Toyota Caldina cambelt broke. Valve damage?


Sorry to say there is most likely quite expensive damage to the valve train and pistons. A new cam belt can be installed and the motor rotated to see if it is turning freely after which you would do a compression check (lack of compression will indicate bent or broken valves). I've never seen a diesel break a belt and avoid damage, virtually always a catastrophic failure.

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 ?
