Question about Cars & Trucks
My son was sitting at red light lost power timming belt didnt break but lost few teeth off belt do you think its worth saving
Well it is an interference engine which means if the belt breaks the pistons could damage the valves.
If it only jumped a couple of teeth it may not have damaged anything.
I would put a new belt on and check compression.

14 or 15mm socket to release tension. Use socket with leverage bar push/pull towards driver side. Will notice tension releasing, pull belt. Use 5/16 allen wrench for bolt in center, 12 mm socket for mounting bolt. Remove bolts, remove tensioner.

The engine chipset computer must have sensed the timing belt too tight or not in line or or the timing not set after the new belt put. You will HAVE to go back to rectify this problem.
A word of advise.... dont loose time... go ASAP to avoide costly damage to the bearings...
