If the timing belt broke you probably got some bent valves. but as for puting the timing belt back on, there are marks on the outer edge of the cam and a indention on the valve cover behind it. line those up and on the crank gear blade there is a small v. line that up with the triangle on the engine- around the 10 o'clock position. then you will have to commpress the tensioner and use a small Allen wrench to hold it compressed. then install the timing belt and put the tensioner back and pull the pin. spin it over by hand and make sure the marks line back up
why dont i have spark on 2001 galant you might have to change your Crankshaft position sensor. i just had that problem with my galant after timing belt broke.
the timing belt on my 2003 galant broke while i was driving and i had it replaced by the dealer. they said it's possibility for the valves to bend. I had no problems after my timing belt was changed Tony
Maybe the timing belt broke.
If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."
depends on if the timing belt broke or not.... if the car was running and it broke there is a good chance you will need to do heads valves etc. on the dodge neons there is a zero tollerance clearance. About 1500.00 to 2000.00 if it broke while running About 150.00 to 200.00 if you replace it before it breaks
I HAVE A 2003 GALANT THAT THE TIMING BELT BROKE ON AND REPLACED. iT HAS NOT RUN THE SAME SINCE THEN. I TALKED WITH AN A.S.E. CERTIFIED MECHANIC WITH 25+ YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND HE SAID THAT THE VALVES WERE SLIGHTLY BENT. MY CAR WOULD START AFTER THE BELT BROKE, BUT IT HASN'T RUN THE SAME SINCE. NOW I HAVE TO DECIDE WHETHER TO HAVE THE MOTOR RE-WORK, REPLACED OR BUY A NEW CAR. BUT I LOVE MY CAR AND PRIOR TO THAT INSTANCE, IT RAN BEAUTIFULLY. HOPE THIS HELPS.
the LeSabre has a timing CHAIN. It does not need to be replaced. (unless you broke it :)
When you have the belt put back on correctly it will be back in time.
if i remember correctly the 2001 still has an interference engine.....if your timing belt broke you surely pinged some valves.
If belt broke it probably caused damage to the valves. If replaced before any breaking, it was probably installed wrong and the timing is off.
when it is broke
It has a timing belt. Mine broke after 140K miles.
I believe it is not a zero clearance engine because it doesn't have a defined mileage for the timing belt change.
A 2000 Mazda Protege with 1.8 DOHC engine appears to be a "free-running" engine, meaning there is no valve/piston interference in case the timing belt broke. There is enough clearance between the valve and piston, even if the cam stops (i.e. the timing belt breaks) with the valve fully open. Therefore, the car will not be damaged if the timing belt broke.
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.
I have a 97 chevy s10 and my timing chain broke and bent every valve too so yeah u will need to get ur head fixed or buy a new or used one but if u buy a used one get it pressure tested before u put it on
No, the engine will not run with a broken cam belt.
If it broke, yes.
Sounds like maybe the timing belt/timing chain broke or jumped. If it will not run at all, I'd guess broke.
timing belt broke?
if the timing belt is broke, then the car wont start. and u probably bent a bunch of valves.
either the timing belt broke or it ran out of oil
If you can drive the car, the timing belt isn't broken. An engine will not start or run with a broken cam belt.
