This problem is fixable without having to buy a new motor. Though it is a timely and costly repair, because a proper mechanic will make sure that nothing is bent in the valve-train. It can run anywhere from $500 , including parts and labor, if just the belt. To who knows what if something is bent in the valve-train.

Ford Focus - 12 years old, broke timing belt. The garage is saying I need a complete new cylinder head. I suspected it was the timing belt and expected several bent valves at worst. My question is...


Here at my repair shop have never had to replace a cylinder head, due to timing belt failure, just replace bent valve's and machine head.

Timing belt is broken. Interference or non interference motor?


Most Ford vehicles from 1985 and up have enough valve clearence so the valves do not get hit when the timing belt snaps. Since I worked for ford for many years I have only seen one with valve damage and the youg man said he was driving his car really hard at high RPM's. I believe you will be okay on your engine as long as when the belt broke the engine was not at high rpm's. If know one has told you those engine recommend a timing belt replacement every 60k. I hpe this helped and I hope this fixes your problem. Good luck, Roger

Timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3


Hello mawbea: My name is Roger I will answer your question. You did not say which engine is in your car. So if you have a 2.0 SOHC engine. If the belt broke you should be Ok. If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are just about a guarantee. How ever with any engine using a timing belt it is possible to bend a valve.Should you need more help please just ask.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received helpful information.Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger
