Item 21 (the upper interior trim piece) needs to be removed, prior to removing the bottom piece #22. The only screws that hold #21 in are at the handle at the top, then you just pop it out. There are about 6 screws on the bottom part.

I have a 2004 Dodge NEON with an interference engine that the timing belt broke on. What are the chances of valve damage and about how much does that cost to fix?

The valves will be bent and you will need a head job done. The time to do the job outside head reconditioning would be around 4 hours labour and the parts will include valves, head gasket kit, timing belt, adjuster pulley, and if the job is done properly crankshaft and cam shaft seals as oil is the main cause of belt failure.

Not likely. A timing belt out of whack means the valves are no longer synchronized with the pistons and intake and exhaust are reduced in effectiveness and efficiency.

Before spending that kind of money on a car that age I would have another mechanic look at it. Could turn out to be a fix that would extend the life of the car several years.

Car won't start mechanic said timing belt had split is the engine ruin now . Is it an inter mediate engine

Yes, the engine in the 2002 Kia is and Interference fit engine. Meaning if the belt breaks there is a possibility of valve, piston damage. The 2.4L, 4 cylinder and the 2.5L, 2.7L v6 are all Interference type engines. Sorry, The engine is not ruined but may have some damage that may be costly to repair.

I have 2006 Dodge Stratus 4 cycl. It died on me while i was driving and wouldn't start back up. i had a mechanic check it out and he said it was the timing belt but he couldn't tell me for sure if...

The problem is that it depends on the mileage and the condition of the car and if it was kept up, the timing belt is what keeps the top and bottom of the motor in time, when the belt breaks the pistons come up and hit and bend the valves because the belt is not turning the cams to close the valves, most of the time there is valve damage, you can ask him to install a belt and then before putting everything back together to do a compression test, the test will show if there are bent valves, sometimes people get lucky and dont bent valves because the valves closed but they were at a light or going slow, this makes it so the engine isnt spinning so fast and valves close before damage is done,If you have over 100,000 miles maybe its time for another car, the thing is whats next, the transmissions in these cars are known for going bad also.i just did a little research and found that this car has daul overhead cams which makes the valve bending more definite, i would say for sure theres valve damage, this can be fixxed but the head would have to be removed and sent to a machine shop for new valves and a valve job, this could cost about $600.00 then the labor for the tech to remove the head and install it and the new belt and plus parts, i would say about $2000.00. this is something you need to think about. if the car is in great shape and you did all the maintinace to it and dont need other repairs like brakes, tuneup or tire and the cars body and inside are great and mileage is around 80,0000 then maybe fix it, otherwise replace it, hope this helps.

Timing belt broke did it bend any valves

This engine has been identified as an interference engine in which the possibility of valve to piston damage in the event of timing belt failure is most likely to occur, when repairing I would also replace water pump, due to pump is timing belt driven. On an 2002 VW Jetta TDI 1.9L engine, VW recommends timing belt replacement every 80,000 miles.

Need cost for a timing belt repair

It really depends on whether or not any valve/head damage was done when the belt broke. The part itself is about $15-$20, the labor is what gets you. It is actually about a 1/12 or 2 hour job, but most shops charge upwards of 5 hours for this service, so depends on the labor rate. If it involves re-working the head or head and valve replacement due to damage, you could be looking at a 5 or $600 job. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Timming belt broke when motor was running , fitted new belt an done everything to the book but still wont start could l have a valve on the wong side please help stressed

There is the possibility that the pistons, valves or rods are damaged. When the timing belt breaks during operation, it frees the motion of the cam and some of the valves remain open instead of closing as they are supposed to "in time" and can actually cause the valve to strike the piston on it's upward course, respectively damaging the part(s).

Cam position sensor fault indicated on computer diagnostics .Timing chain jumped will this have caused valve damage.Vehicle is a civic type r on 2002

With Vtech motors, if the timing belt jumps to much yes you will get valve/piston damage. This type of damage is usually very noticable (knocking, loud head noise, no start) Best thing to do if no damage is noticed have the belt adjusted back into timing. jumping one rib maybe 2 might not have enough to cause damage my prelude jumped and didn't have a problem

Make sure the tensioner is tight to the specifications and in propper place.
You may need to Replace Your Timing Belt if you don't fix it putting it in tension.
Timing belt slipping off can badly damage valves, causing a damage that requires an expensive repair, do not circulate if timing belt is not OK, see :Cost estimate for valve job after timing belt slip
