If you break a timing belt on a 1991 Toyota Camry with the 6-cylinder engine will it bend the valves?
A broken timing belt on a 6 cylinder Camry will not harm the engine but it will stop it completely. Timing belts should be changed every 80,000 miles as preventive maintenance.
What does a ticking sound which increases in frequency with increase in speed coming from the engine mean?
Also known as a interference engine, A zero tolerance engine is an engine that would damage the valves and likely the pistons without correct timing. This would occur because the valves and piston have the ability to come into contact with each other. With correct timing, this is not an issue because the piston travels away from the valves as they travel into the cylinder. When timing is lost, the piston could travel toward the…
Does a Toyota Paseo have a zero clearance motor I believe the timing belt broke and I would like to know if the valves are affected before I repair it.?
I wouldn't recommend it. The timing chain synchronizes all of the valves and pistons so that the valves for the right cylinder open at the proper time. If the timing chain breaks while the engine is running, you've got a really good chance of destroying your engine, and I do mean "destroying" your engine.
By interference, if you are referring to the valves. The 1.8 liter is a non interference engine. If the timing belt brakes, then the valves do not interfere with the piston. They do not try and occupy the same space. The 1.9 liter engine is an interference engine. If the timing belt breaks then the valves will occupy the same space as the piston and they will hit each other.
Yes, the recommended interval for changing timing belts in Toyota vehicles built before 1998 is every 60,000 miles. It's not as vital as on some other engines because the 1.6 liter is not an interference engine which means that if the belt breaks it won't probably bend valves an so on. Go ahead and have the water pump swapped out when changing out the timing belt.
There is no Timing belt in corolla 2003 to 2008 model, Toyota start the timing chain for all these series that's what the Toyota dealer said.Your Toyota timing belt/timing chain plays an important role in the running of your vehicle. The Toyota timing belt/timing chain is typically tucked away behind the front cover of your engine, but just because it is out of sight does not mean it should be out of mind. Indeed, far…
