I accidently drove my 20003 dodge Durango in 2nd gear,it over heated and wont start,timing chain?


overheated motors damage the rings and bore of the engine
it will blow head gaskets and warp/ crack heads
very rarely will it damage the timing chain
run a compression test first and it is possible that there is valve damage ( burnt valves )

Yes, you could of damaged a valve by rotating then engine or the cam. Now this only applies if it's a non clearance engine.. now what you might have done is rotated the cam out of timing while doing whatever it is you were trying to do. SO you might have to dis-assemble the timing chain/gears to try and reset everything

While driving my 2001 Grand Am 2.2 Echo engine the timing chain broke. Does this mean my valves are bent?


The only way to tell is to pull it apart and inspect the head and valves to see what damage was done, sometimes no damage,sometimes major damage.

I have been advsed that I have a broken timing belt or "jumped timing chain.Besides the belt/chain, what other components do you recommend replacing(Gasket/seal,cam and crank pulleys,tensioners)?


I am assuming you have the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine. The timing chain tensioner on these engines is nororious for failure resulting in jumped timing. Be advised that depending upon the situation, you may have sustained major engine damage. If the timing simply jumped when turning the engine off, you may be safe, but if it occurred at highway speed, there is a high probability that there is valve damage in the engine that will need repair before you can move on to the timing chain and tensioner. As far as "other components", if your know that the head is ok, then you should replace the timing gears, chain, and tensioner. Also purchase a "timing gasket set" which will give you the gaskets ans seals you need to do the job.

If the chain broke while the engine was running, and I presume it did, it is possible that you may have damaged the valves. When the chain breaks the cam shaft stops moving and the valves stay in their last position. The pistons continue to move until the engine comes to a stop. An open valve can be hit by a piston, sometimes breaking the valve or just bending the shaft. Also you have to be sure the new chain has the cam shaft and crank shaft properly timed. As I understand that that engine does not have timing marks on the chain sprockets. To test for damaged valves, remove the spark plugs and test the compression in each cylinder by cranking the engine while holding the compression gage in the spark plug hole. All the cylinder should have the same pressure within about 15 psi. A cylinder with damaged valves will not have any compression pressure. If you are unsure about the valve timing check into how that engine is timed. I don't have that information but if is out of time it has a very major effect on the engine performance and idle. I hope this gives you a place to start looking for the cause of the mis. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

CAR STALLED. DISCOVERED TIMING BELT HAD BROKEN. REPLACED BELT. STILL WILL NOT START BUT WILL TURN OVER


It sounds like the timing is still off, which will not allow it to start, or you have a faulty cam, or crank sensor.

1994 toyota pickup blown head gasket. is that an easy fix? can i do it in my school autoshop and or driveway?


So the first question is ... is it really a blown head gasket? Could also be damaged head, block, etc and the timing chain can wear through it's housing and allow coolant into the oil. If it is a blown head gasket then why did it happen? Is the head warped, coolant passages corroded, or ?? Here's link to
a '93 manual to give you some idea what you're dealing with. http://personal.utulsa.edu/~nathan-buchanan/93fsm/ Can you replace the gasket in shop or driveway ... depends on what sort of
complications you run in to. You may want to have a valve job done while you're there, maybe
time to do the timing chain, etc. Give it a try.
