Yes it will bend valves
in witch you would have to have your head removed and hope you dont need new pistons
it will cost you a very large amount to fix

The timing belt snap while i was driving 2005 4 door sebring i had it towed to the shop will it run when they put the timing belt on the car

Cynthia, unfortunately the engine in your Sebring is what is called an "interference engine". When the timing belt breaks on an interference engine, the valves stop moving and the still moving pistons hit the valves that are open and bend them. This requires the removal of the cylinder head(s) to repair the damage. A fairly expensive proposition, I'm afraid.

Can a sonata bent valves if cam belt snaps and what is the timing marks 2.0 gls

The sonata has a 16 valve machine and works with a timing belt and not a timing chain. if the belt snaps it will bend the valves. not all the valves but some of them. a secondhand top with valves shouldn't be expensive. I would change all the valves. sometimes a valve cen bend so minimal it can't be picked up by the eye. you don't want take the top off again. it's a fairly simple machine. a mechanic should help you with the timing once you're done. good luck

If the timing belt breaks does this shear or bend the valves on a 2000 deawoo lanos?

All Daewoo Engines are interference fit Engines. Which means that if the timing belt rips while the engine is running the pistons will hit and bend the valves and you will have to get new valves and possibly a new cylinder head. Worst case scenario you will also have to get a new engine block if for some reason chunks or pieces of valve, piston or cylinder head damaged the cylinder bore and cracked the block while things were moving around. Daewoo Timing belts are recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles but it is best to replace them before 60k as some people have had their timing belts break on them as soon as 61,000 miles.

When is the timing belt changed

most belt manufacturers recommend 60,000 miles or sooner, some car makers say 80,000 but it is better to change it early than have it snap and ruin the engine.

Severe engine damage to the head, pistons and valves can occur if the belt snaps, the faster the engine is going, the worse the damage. Even at tickover / idle a belt breaking will bend most of the valves in the head so it is prudent to do it as soon as it is required. Also check if the water pump needs doing at the same time, as it needs the timing belt off to do and may be near failure due to having a plastic impeller. Make sure the belt idlers and tensioner are replaced with the belt.

Setting timing belt after old one snaped

Hello gotagetit: Here is the picture you asked for. This shows where the timing marks align. How ever this is a interference engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are great. I never seen a belt break that did not bend the valves. Please rate the quality of your answer as it helps insure you received the answer you wanted.Roger5420a85.jpg
