Question about 1992 Nissan 300ZX
The engine quit running while I was driving down the road. Car has 73,000 miles. I have never changed the timing belt, which is what I suspect is the problem. If the timing belt broke, what kind of damage will I be looking at?
The timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
your engine is an interference engine, which means if the timing belt breaks or skips, the valves will hit the pistons.
if your belt broke you will have bent valves. so the heads will need to come off and bent valves replaced.
