how can you tell if a timing belt is bad
If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN THE ENGINE OVER IF YOU SUSPECT A BROKEN TIMING BELT !!!!!! If you have, you already have more problems than a broken timing belt. Remove the upper timing belt cover and physically look at the timing belt.
can you tell me the markins for my timing belt for my peogeut partner van
For Camry 1997-2001, the timing belt must be replaced each 90000 miles.
if the timing belt is broke, then the car wont start. and u probably bent a bunch of valves.
It uses a timing chain
If your timing belt is broken you can definitly tell because your car will not do anything, wont crank, wont do anything. car will crank over but will not fire there is a plastic cover that can be removed part way to expose timing belt
Lots of engines have a timing belt. Ask about 2 or 3 and I will tell you if they use a belt or chain. I am not going to list every single engine.
ive got a 2006 focus diesel can you tell me if its got a timing belt

If you think your Timing Belt broke DO NOT try to crank your car, if you continue to crank you car with a severed timing belt you will cause more damage. The only way you can tell for sure if the timing belt broke is to remove the upper timing cover and inspect the belt. If you see a naked cam sprocket your timing belt has broken and you will most likely need a top end engine rebuild.
This engine does not use a timing belt, it does use a timing chain instead which is inside of the engine behind the front cover
Engine will not start and run if the belt has broken.
You use a timing light to check the marks on the timing chain/belt.
Hi i have a 2003 Mercedes vito 2.2 tdi 108 van can you tell me has it got a timing belt or a chain thanks mike
If the timing belt was broken, obviously the engine would not run. If you crank the engine and the distributor does not turn, that would be a good sign.
Pull the distributor cap, and turn the engine over. It you see no movement, the belt is broken.
The owners manual will tell you when they recommend replacing the timing belt. Some manufacturers recommend every 60K and some recommend every 80K.
ask a mechanic
short answer; the engine will not run with a broken timing belt. also the RL has an interferance motor, meaning that if the timing belt breaks you are likely to smack the piston heads into the valves, thus causing extensive and costly damage..
If The Timing Belt Turns The Camshaft, Which It Does. And The Belt Is Broken The Camshaft Will Not Open And Close The Valves . IT CAN NOT START OR RUN> No. It might start but wont run very well because it wont know when to fire with out the timing belt.
You cannot tell that is why you just replace them at a set mileage as recommended by the manufacture of the vehicle.
Separate issue, if you need too set the timing following a timing belt change or belt slippage then you have to set the mechnical timing of the motor. Go buy a Chilton or Haynes manual which will tell you where the marks are and you can properly set the timing before starting the motor.
You will need to tell the year, make and model. All are different.
