According to Gates chart, you engine is an 'interference engine' meaning that the valves and pistons can collide. The belt change interval is 60,000 miles/100,000 km.
I had an engine that could interfere but lucked out and no damage occurred which I established only be removing the cylinder head.
I would not install a new belt without pulling the head and inspecting for damage, otherwise even greater damage may occur if one or more valves are bent or have broken the valve stems. If the head is removed, make sure that it and the block are checked for flatness otherwise a replaced head gasket (must be done if head is removed) may fail prematurely. If either is not flat, they must be resurfaced before reassembly.

While driving my 2001 Grand Am 2.2 Echo engine the timing chain broke. Does this mean my valves are bent?


The only way to tell is to pull it apart and inspect the head and valves to see what damage was done, sometimes no damage,sometimes major damage.

My timing belt and balancing belt broke on my 1998 mitsubishi galant es and my husband put the belts back on in time but the car won't crank. The engine turns over when cranked but won't start. ...


Are you sure it was timing belt? If so. When you crank the engine, does it turn kinda fast without making a wump wump sound? When the timing belt broke it may have done some hidden damage. Its possible it may have bent the valve stems by piston hitting them because the timing to move them was off. You need to perform a compression test on all cylinders. Borrow or rent a compression gauge from an auto parts store. They will tell you how to use it, what to look for. If compression is bad, you may have to remove the cylinder head and have a valve job done. Except that you need to replace some of the valves. This calls for some skill or at least good apptitude in mechanics. OR somthing did not go right with the timing belt install.. Thats all I can do for you now. Check the compression. Good luck.

Timing belt broke . installed new one ,now auto back fire's. won't start


Did you get it timed correctly? You don't just replace them like a fan belt, there is a procedure and marks that you line up. Your engine may be a non-interference or interference which means that if your timing belt breaks your pistons may hit your valves and cause major engine damage. Non-interference means that when the belt breaks it won't interfere and cause damage. Interference means that it will. I don't know what engine you have in your car but if you call a dealer and tell them what engine you have in your car they should be able to tell you if it is a non-interference or interference engine.

Will the valves will connect with the piston if the timing belt broke?


I'm assuming you meant if the timing belt broke would the pistons hit your valves? 2 parts to this, #1 if your belt just broke you should be fine, #2 if your belt skipped time significantly (highly improbable) only then would your internal components have a chance of hitting each other from components trying to open and close at improper times. This could damage both intake/exhaust valves, other valve train components and even damage the head of your pistons.

I have sonata gold timing belt braoken now i want to change it but i dont no where is the timing marking pls tell me about this


hi from the uk if your timing belt broke whilst driving? then i'm afraid you cannot just fit/replace belt as you will have caused damage either serious? or hopefully minor to the valves ie you will have bent some valves due to the designe of engine however to assess damage will req cyl head removal for investigation on damage ? the belt may have either broken or the tensioner collapsed causing belt failure ? these belts req to be renewed as a kit as specified in service manual/handbook if you do intend to D I Y ? the repair/s then i can scan/e mail you full instructions + diagram of c belt and timemarks+tensioner but advise you check out damage 1st b4 proceeding further ? hope this helps and wish you luck

Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
