I have a 2003 Saturn vue with 138,000 miles. the machanic says the cam shafts are not turning and the timing belt is broken . How expensive is this to do, can I do it myself ?


First you need to find out if the engine is an interference engine or free running. If an interference engine, it means the valves will interfere with the pistons if they become out of time--like when a timing belt breaks. this means the valves will hit the pistons and vice versa. Usually the valves are bent and the cylinder head must be removed to get to the bent valves and replace them. If the engine is free running, the valves and pistons will miss each other if they become untimed. So all that is needed in this case is a new timing belt. Much, much easier and less costly than removing the cylinder head.

To find out if your engine is free running or interference, check out this website:

scroll down and look for the interference check.

According to my research it is an interference engine. Meaning if your timing belt broke, you could have damage to the valves and pistions.
