No, 2.4L Chrysler engines have valve relief notches in the head, so a broken/slipped timing belt shouldn't result in piston or valve damage.

Camshaft replacement 2002 chrysler sebring


This is a bit of work. I done plenty of head work. Rarely are the cams worn enough to replace. I would bet they are throwing them in for more money. If the cams are worn you either have really high miles or there wasn't enough oil to keep them lubed. That is another problem in it's self. I think I would get a second opinion. Sounds to me the timing belt broke. And on some of the Chrysler engines, this trashes them. Interference engines.

TIMING CHAIN BROKE ON MY 2002 2.7 LITER LXI WOULD THE VALVES BEND


The Chrysler 2.7 is an interference engine which means that the piston can go up far enough to hit the valves and bend them. The car would need to be inspected and the timing will have to be calibrated again by a dealer or mechanic after the chain is replaced.

97sebring 2.5 litre(is it interference or non interference engine


Yes I double Salkim08's solution. Since your motor is made from Aluminum, this could be a big sign that it is an interferance motor. Aluminum expands twice as much as iron. Most old fashion V motors ( v6's V8's) are made with an Iron block and Aluminum heads. But new Transverse motors( sideways front wheel drive motors), block and cylinder head, are made of aluminum.

Timing belt is broken on a 2002 sebring


The engine in your car is not an interference engine if it is a DOHC (Double Overhead Camshafts), if it is a SOHC (single Overhead Cam) then it is a interference engine u have bent valves and the head will need to come off for repair My reference Gates timing belt catalog. U will need a shop manual to replace the belt also a really good set of hand tools, u will also need to replace the water pump which is driven off the timing belt.
