if you mean the timing belt, then you may be looking at possibly bent valves, damage to the pistons,damage to camshaft and possibly crank shaft. may be if you're lucky nothing may happen. the worst case would be the need for a new engine. if you mean the serpentine belt that is also known as the acessory belt then , it wont be any damage it will be more of an inconvinience. because your power steering pump stops working your alternator stops ,and your ac compressor. The above is true, unless you continued to drive without the water pump turning until you overheated the engine and warped the head.
Timing Belt, and a serpantine belt
If its from the engine bay, check the serpantine belts, and the timing belt. My old Toyota paseo had a bad serpantine belt and it did squeak alot. Also check all the pulleys make sure theyre not wobbly.
You cannot adjust the belt. It is self adjusting by way of a spring loaded tensioner at the front of the engine block. The air conditioning compressor is driven by the serpantine belt. It may be stretched.
Well I really have no idea what a ldv is, but if your timing belt breaks and your engine is an interference engine there will be damage. If it is not an interference engine there will be no damage.
Its a safe engine so no damage will be done..just fit another belt and tensioner and away you go.. This is a non interference engine so if the timing belt snaps, the only damage is the belt itself. This means that you can fit a new belt, time the engine and continue
yes this is an interference engine damage to valves will occur if the timing belt breaks and the engine is turned
If the engine is an interference engine and the belt breaks you can almost be certain that there is damage. If it is not an interference engine there will be no damage. I could tell you if you had listed the make, model, year, and engine size.
=It has a belt. The belt must be changed every 60,000 miles. WARNING:==This is an interferance engine. If the belt breaks there will be serious engine damage.=
If the timing belt on a 1.6 Astra breaks, it can damage the engine. It is more likely to damage the engine if it is a timing chain, though. A timing chain is made of metal and a timing belt is made of a heavy duty rubber.
A broken timing belt on a Ford ZX2 will not damage the engine. The 2.0 ZETEC engine used in the ZX2 is a non-interference engine which means the pistons will not come into contact with the valves should the belt break. Because of this the valves will not be damaged and no engine damage will occur.
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
Had that same problem on my 93 the tensioner wore out. had to have it replaced.
Yes, when the belt breaks the engine will not run. In addition you will have internal engine damage if the engine was an interference engine.
If you have the 1.6 Liter SOHC engine the answer is YES. This is an Interference engine, and if the belt breaks engine damage will occur. Belt should be replaced every 30,000 miles. I know that sounds absurd, but that is the factory recommendation. If you have the 1.8 Liter DOHC engine, no damage will occur. It is NOT an interference engine. Replace the belt every 60,000 miles.If you have the 1.6 Liter SOHC engine the answer is YES. This is an Interference engine, and if the belt breaks engine damage will occur.

On an interference engine the pistons can hit the valves. That will cause severe internal engine damage.
It has a timing belt. Replace at 60,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur.
If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage but the engine will not be ruined. It can be repaired.
Yes! This is an interference engine and damage to the valves, head, pistons, is likely if the belt breaks. Replace the belt at 90,000 miles.
If this is a DOHC 2.0 it is an Interference engine and you may have serious engine damage. If it is a SOHC 2.0, then you are OK as it is a non-interference engine. If you have replaced the belt, you need to check for engine damage. The belt should have been replaced at 120,000 miles. I suggest a professional look at this, especially if it is the DOHC, as replacing the belt incorrectly will do more damage.
The belt will wear out. If the engine is an Interference engine and the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. if it is not an interference engine you will be stranded on the road and will pay a towing fee. Replace the belt as listed in the owner's manual.
Depends on which engine you have. Caterpillar, Cummins, and Powerstroke diesels were available for the F750 at various times, as well as Triton gas engines.
No, this is an interference engine. You will have severe engine damage if the belt breaks.
Never use belt dressing on a serpentine belt. Clean the dressing off and recheck the pulleys.
They have a tensioner that automatically tightens the belt, maybe yours needs to be changed or you need a new belt.
if by "interference fit" you're asking if the engine will bend valves and damage the cylinder head if the timing belt breaks, and this is the honda d16 series engine, then yes, if the timing belt breaks, or jumps too far out of time, then you will have at least 4 bent valves...
