99 zx2 has a non interference engine. This means if the timing is off or the timing belt breaks, no damage will occur to your engine. If you replaced the belt and your engine runs rough, misfires, bucks, that means you didn't put the timing belt on right. It's got to be put on perfectly with the crankshaft at TDC and the cams aligned. Have fun. If you can figure it out, you can take it to a Ford dealer to have the timing belt put on properly.

Will a broken timing belt on a 1999 Toyota celica damage the engine?

Almost certainly. The timing belt being damaged or broken can cause a number of different problems. I know in my 86 celica sx the result of a faulty/ old timing belt was a piston snapping off at the control rod, it was warped and bent because of wrong timing. i suggest if u have a broken/old/damaged timing belt you do not drive it till u get it replaced. Also see your mechanic for more advice

What do you do if the timing belt breaks and how do you know if that is what happened?

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.

No such thing as a timing chain belt. It is either a belt or chain. Replace the belt according to the schedule in your owner's manual.

Mine has 240,000 miles on it and is still running fine.
