My timing chain has snapped


I assume it's your timing belt, not a chain, which rarely, if ever snap. Depending on the make of the car and the engine you may, or may not, have serious engine damage.. DO NOT ATTEMPT to start the car, have it towed to your shop of choice. If there is no engine damage a timing belt replacement generally will run you 2 or 3 hundred bucks...if you did serious engine damage you may have to decide if the car if worth the money to have it repaired. What you need to know is whether your car has an "interference" or "non-interference" type engine.. In an interference type engine if the timing belt breaks the valves will "interfere" with the pistons as they travel up if the timing belt breaks, which results in generally catastrophic engine failure.. non-interference engines generally suffer little or no engine damage with a broken timing belt.. I broke a timing belt on my 1990 Toyota Supra going 70mph, but it was a non-interference engine and after having the belt replaced it was fine.. here is a good list someone put together on what type of engine is in your car.. you should find the engine type either marked on the engine or on a label under the hood, or the owners manual.. good luck. http://yourcarangel.com/2014/07/interference-engines-complete-list/

Tip

Avoid getting pick-pocketed with a money belt


Tourists are always the target of pickpockets in countries that get a lot of tourism but there are ways to avoid getting pick-pocketed or just to reduce the hassle. Money belts are very helpful in reducing the hassle that would be involved in getting pick-pocketed. What many people do is carry a dummy wallet, one that has out of date or fake credit cards an a small amount of cash in it. And have a money belt under their clothes with their real credit card and more cash. This way if you are pick pocketed you will only lose credit cards that cannot be used and a small amount of cash.

There are some disadvantages to money belts that have to be kept in mind when you think about using one. The biggest is that they are generally worn under your clothes thus making it very difficult to get to so when you need to get some cash out you have to remove some clothing drawing attention to yourself. If you are planning to travel in a warm climate area you have to keep in mind that when wearing tight clothing or light semi-transparent clothing the money belt will be visible. If they can see the money belt then they know where the real goods are and that's not very helpful.

What ever you decide to pack your valuables in the best thing that you can do is split it up. When I travel if I'm taking cash I split it up into small amounts putting some in a wallet, some in a money belt and some in zipped internal pockets in my backpack. This way its not all taken if one bag is taken. Safe travels!

If the timing belt on a 94 toyota camry broke, would it bend the valves in the head 4cyclinder


The pistons will hit the valves on a lot of cars, but you should ask your Toyota dealer service dept for sure.
Hope this helps.

What is the difference between a fanny pack and a money belt?


A fanny pack is bigger and bulkier than a money belt so its much more easily spotted and targeted for pick pocketing. A money belt is a flat pouch that is worn close to the body and sometimes even under clothing.

What is the preferred material for money belt?


The best money belts are made completely of nylon webbing and non-metallic material, including the zipper tracks and zipper pull, so they won't set off metal detectors at airport screening stations.

A family member has a Volvo 850 (1996) and had a crash. Now the seat belt pretensioners have locked the seat belts solid. I've tried resetting the ECU, took it to Volvo and they wanted to replace the whole...


Hi,

That volvo and most of modern cars today uses a small explosive charge, placed in that retaining gear of seat belts. It will be activated to a collision.

To activate that seat belt, you must replace the whole retaining gear with that same type of safety precaution system.

The only way you could get a cheaper normal seatbelt is to replace it with an ordinary retaining gear lock, mostly Japanese seat belt or the older pre 1990 type that has no explosive charge.


Hope that clears everything and tightens up your problem!


Thanks for using Fixya!
