sence the belt broke more than likely yes it did damaged the valves. but to make sure call the dealer service dept. and ask if it a zero degree talerance motor. if they say yes then you need to have your cyl. head reworked. hope this helps

This definetly sounds like an alternator problem........but to definetly check this.....grab a multimeter, and check the voltage at the battery whilst the engine is running/idling, the voltage should be around 13.8v and 14.2v,,,,,,,let me know how it goes !!

computer doesnt control pump relay on such a old vehicle ,you have a fuse out or old dirty connections on the base of the relay so if all else fails then run a new feed wire to relay depending on which power point on relay has no power ,if its the feed from ignition to operate relay make a new feed from ignition switch and if no power to pump side of relay then run a new feed to this via a fuse .simple to sort out on such an old vehicle

You may have a bad throwout bearing which is not good as the transmission will need to be pulled to replace it, If replacing the throwout bearing it is usually a good idea to also replace the clutch plate at the same time. This can be caused by keeping pressure on the clutch pedal while driving causing the throwout bearing to be constantly engaged therefore wearing out the bearing.

IThis is ok changing parts but if you have another problem then changing all these parts were a waste of time ,first thing to do is to check for power to the petrol pump first before you go any further ,turn ignition on and then see if you have power to the cable connector on top of the pump housing .Then work backwards checking power to the pump relay then the power distribution box .

The check engine light (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

As for the rough running you will need to have the engine checked for a leaking/blown cylinder head gasket with a gas analyzer to check for the presence of Hydrocarbons in the cooling system.

I am not sure what you are asking about the timing belt but if it runs the belt is ok. One final note if the timing belt is overdue and it breaks you will bend the valves in the engine.

That is quite a large change from stock. It will offset you speedometer, cause breaking issues, and could cause the vehicle to be unstable in handling and cornering. The largest it is recomending is 225/70/15. I could see going 235/70/15 with a very mild offset to the speedometer(not enough to worry about). They do make a 215/70/16 but you loose your width and grip and the price is more substancial. The ones listed above are better for longevity and price overall.
