Are you sure it's a 2.5 as the Breeze didn't come with a 2.5. It did come with a 2.4, If this is the case it is a non-interference engine so if the belt broke you most likely didn't bend the valves. I hope this helps you and good luck.

1999 honda accord vtech timing belt marks

The Honda F23 series engine is a 2.3 liter, all aluminum block, 16 valve, Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC) motor used in the Honda Accord (1994 - 2002) and Acura Cl (2.3). Timing belt failure may result in either the intake or exhaust valves bending after contacting the pistons. If the belt has broken, a Compression Leakage test is advised to determine if the valves require replacement. Compression leakage from any of the cylinders (indicating bent valves) will require the removal of the cylinder head. An inspection and rebuild of the head by a reputable automotive machine shop is recommended in lieu of doing it yourself. This DIY article only covers belt replacement. The belt replacement interval is either 90,000 or 105,000 miles based on the specific model year. Check the owner's manual for the specific service interval. If the mileage is below the threshold but the vehicle is over 7 years old, consider performing a replacement as preventative maintenance (PM). Timing belts cannot be visually inspected for wear. Moreover, a visual inspection would require the removal of the timing belt cover which in itself is time consuming and better spent working on replacement. A typical timing belt component kit consists of: 1. Timing Belt 2. Balance Shaft Belt. 3. Timing Belt Tensioner Pulley. 4. Balance Shaft Tensioner Pulley

Reset timingbelt on 1999 plymouth breeze sohc 2.0

When you break a timing belt, you get a kit with a new
water pump,pulley's,tensioners & belt

Also you get an instruction manual to follow for
the timing of the cams & such

If you only bought a belt, you should also have instructions

Nothing-- then you go to the internet & find a picture & also
can watch You Tube Video

If the belt broke-- what about bent valves,BEFORE,before
you address the belt replacement

Good time to do a cylinder leak down test

Is the head on the sportage an interference head the timing belt broke and i want to know if it could bend valvel?

Yes, the 2.0L engine is an interference type engine and will bend valves should the belt break. The recommended belt change interval is 60,000 miles for Federal emission vehicles and 105,000 miles for California emission vehicles. I prefer to change most timing belts at the low end of the recommended interval just to be on the safe side as the repairs can be quite expensive. Good luck, hope this helps!

{1990 plymonth laser 16v dohc 2.o } All intake valves are down in open position and want come back up. What could cause this.

I'll assume that the motor had been running normally up to this point but then suddenly quit or wouldn't restart after being shut off. What might be wrong is that the intake valves may have gotten bent or damaged from contact with the pistons if the timing belt has gotten out of time or has broken. This is an "interference" type of engine which means that if the camshaft[s] get out of synch with the crankshaft then the valves may still be held open, or down, yet as the piston is reaching the top of it's stroke. If the valves can't get out of the way then the piston will strike them and bend them enough so they become stuck open. There often is some pretty severe head damage that results from this type of impact and the the cylinder head will need to be removed and closely inspected & repaired as needed.

My daughters 1999 Plymouth Breeze overheated so I pulled over for a few minutes and turned it of. When I started it back up and pulled onto the highway I heard some cluncks and it died. Pulled back over...

It sounds like the water pump siezed up, which in turn tears up the timing belt. The whining sound is the starter turning the crank, however with the broken belt, it is not turning the cam. This mean the motor has no compression. The bad news is, and I learned this first hand less than a month ago....the motor, if it's the same 2.0 I had worked on, is that motor is what is called an interferance motor. That means that when the belt broke and the crank spun without spinning the crank, the pistons came up and struck the valves which did not close properly bending them, so they would likely have to be replaced as well.

The timing job on that motor itself is not bad, I did one in a neon yesterday in less than 3 hours, it's all a matter of wheather or not the valves need replacing to. Replacing a vavle means tearing the motor all the way down to the head gasket, replcing the damaged vavles and rebuilding it.

Good Luck, feel free to stop back with any other questions.

Timing belt has nothing to do with fuel issue. If you're only running on 2 need to find out if spark is missing from those cylinders. Also possible that when the timing belt was replaced, it was not timed properly which can bend a valve, causing rough running.
