You should take your car into a mechanic and check the valves as damage can result in a broken timing belt
The top pulley has a mark imprinted on the side. Make sure the line is at TOP DEAD CENTER. The bottom smaller pulley has two notches. They face DEAD BOTTOM.
This engine, through trial and error, has no problem with valve damage as I tried many ways (after turning the engine by hand first to check for knock or seizing)

why did my timing belt break on my pontiac 1.6 1993 motor also will the valves be bent because of that
The marks are on the timing belt cover,and on the pulley for the crank.
there is no 2.0l Pontiac lemans.it must be a swap from sunrunner.
how do you set timing on a 92 geo prizm if timing belt has broken
if its a chain^
The only fix for broken timing belt or chain is to replace it.
IT'S IN THE HOUSING BEHIND THE TIMING COVER THAT THE UPPER RAD HOSE CONNECTS TO.
You can replace a timing chain on a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire by visiting a local mechanic and having him take care of it for you. This is a tricky part to change yourself.
Hey Tony This is quite involved. Get amanual on your car from MOTORLIT.COM or a parts store and it has pictures and everything. GoodluckJoe
normally you shouldn't have to replace a timing chain unless you've been horsebeating your vehicle
