Volvo 240 with the B230 motor give us a break. The valves and pistons don't touch when the timing belt breaks. BTW, always replace the tensioner when installing a new timing belt. A frozen tensioner just shreds them again.I

Drive belt broken, car will not start


Hi,when the timing belt brakes it allows the pistons to crash into the valves in the head so they bend or brake,as a quick whay to find out what damage has been done,buy a new timing belt and set the timing then get a compresion tester and do each cylinder at a time and see what the values are,it will let you know how maney valves are bent or broken if any,also if the valves are bent or broken they may of damaged inside the head,sorry about your problem hope you get it sorted out and dose not cost alot to fix,all the best.

2004 Mitsubishi Galant I want to know if my engine if they are in interference my tummy bell broke


OK, you want to know if the 2004 Galant is an interference engine, because of a broken timing belt. Your car has the 2.4L engine, and its not quite an interference engine, but its very close. A broken belt MIGHT not have damaged valves when the belt failed. Your garage should be able to look at the valve gear and see if any valves are jammed. It's also possible to look in each cylinder with an endoscope camera for any valve damage. A new belt can be fitted, and the engine turned over to test compression. If there are problems spotted, then the head has to come off and the the damaged valves replaced.

Timing belt broken kia rio 2003


it is an interference engine which means that when a belt breaks , you can expect at least half of the valves to be bent and need replacing
you can get more quotes for the job as that seems extreme
the work entails replacing the belt , idler pulleys , cam and crank seals and hydraulic adjuster ( a professional job to get another 60,000miles from the belt)
That much will set you back by around $1000.00 including labour
The extra is the head removal and new valves so add another $700.00 --including labour )for that and you can see that you need more quotes from accredited service shops

Timing belt broke while driving car what internal damage should i check for before trying to replace belt


I'd recommend doing a web (or dealer) search for your specific engine to see if it's an "interference" engine. An interference engine is one where the intake or exhaust valves could come in contact with the pistons if the timing belt were to break. If your engine is NOT an interference engine, you can start to swap out the timing belt with no worries. If it IS an interference engine, and the timing belt broke while you were driving, there could be a great deal of internal damage. It's hard to estimate what the damage could be... it could range from zero damage (unlikely), to broken valves and pistons. You could do a compression test on each cylinder before replacing the belt.

Good luck.

When i try tostart my car the engine makes a clicking and wierd noise. everyone says the timing belt is broke. i went and bought a new belt but i called a car shop and they said my car might be 98%...


If you try to start your car and the engine is turning over at it's normal or faster than normal speed, then the timing belt might be broken. If it just clicks and doesn't turn over with the key in the "start" position, then I would suspect the battery or starter. If in fact the timing belt has broken, and you continue to try ro start it, then you can cause more damage.

If you can, take the valve cover off. Then while your watching, have someone try to start the car. If the timing belt is broken the camshaft will NOT turn. If NOTHING rotates, then it's more than likely the battery.

A broken timming belt on a ford focus 16v, will there be damage done to the head and valves?


Highly probable
A broken timing belt will result in the pistons hitting the valves this can either bend or break the valves causing damage to the head and possibly to the pistons as well.

Engine has no compression


when the timing belt broke it also bent the valves,hence the broken rocker arm. pull the head and see the valves are bent

Does a broken timing belt permanently damage a Mercury Tracer


depends on the Engine in the car.

1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.

1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.
