The timing belt is what keeps the valves from moving in synch with the pistons. If the timing belt snaps or cogs over the pistons are likely to collide with the valves smashing them both.
your timing can not be right
YES THE VALVES WILL HIT THE PISTONS IF TIMING BELT JUMPS OR BRAKES YES THE VALVES WILL HIT THE PISTONS IF TIMING BELT JUMPS OR BRAKES
( Yes ) according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 2.0 liter four cylinder engine in a 1998 Ford Contour IS NOT an interference engine
If this is a 4cylinder motor, the water pump is located in with the timing belt,and should be replaced by a qualified mechanic, this is a interference motor, if timing belt is not properly installed, motor damage will result. Bent valves, holes in pistons,etc.
If a new timing belt was installed but the valve timing does not correspond with the pistons ie: the valves opening as the pistons reaching top dead centre ,,then it will be jamming.. bending valves and possibly damaging pistons.. when fitting a new timing belt or chain you have to be very careful of cam/valve position in respect of the pistons
Usually if the timing belt breaks you have to replace the head or the bent valves. Sometimes the damage can be much worse and the entire engine can be wiped out. When the timing belt breaks, your cams and valves stop moving but the pistons don't. The pistons will smash against the stopped valves and bent them and on some occasions can break pistons as well.
The 2.5 L Duratec engine has two timing chains so yes, it's interference. They usually can handle 200k miles though. If it breaks, it is likely smashed the valves.
ANSWER YES, The valves will hit the top of pistons and either the valves will bend or the pistons will be destroyed.......
I'm not a mechanic / technician but I would say ( no ) According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 2.0 liter four cylinder engine in a 1995 Ford Contour ( IS NOT AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE )
On an interference engine it can damage the valves, heads, and pistons.
an engine where, in the event that the timing is off or if the timing belt breaks, the pistons can collide with the valves and actually do damage.
The engine will not run, possibly damaging valves and pistons.
The valves can hit the tops of the pistons damaging or breaking either.
It could if the valves made contact with the pistons in an interference engine.
do you mean is a Honda engine an interference engine? in which the valves will get bent by the pistons if the timing belt fails? then yes.
The main cause for bent valves is a failure in the timing chain or belt. When the valves and pistons are not exactly in sync, they can collide.
the ZETEC engine used in the 1999 ZX2 is a non-interference engine. This means that the pistons will not contact the valves when the timing belt breaks. Because of this, the valves will not be bad if the timing belt breaks
Timing belt not installed correctly. Seek professional help.
Yes there is a chance of valve damage when a timing belt fails. Being that the valves and pistons operate in the same cylinder at different times to preform their tasks. The timing belt keeps the valves and pistons in time so they do what they should when they are suppose to, when the belt fails, the pistons are still moving and the valves stop. The piston can then collide with the valve causing damage to the valve and also move the valve causing other valves to move, causing even more damage to other valves in the system as the other pistons continue to move. Need more help contact me through my board and I will try to help.
Yes, If the timing is not right on. The pistons will bend your valves.
Yes. If the timing is off, the pistons will damage the valves
