My 1991 b2200 is a non-interference engine. Timing belt broke and I just replaced it. No damage and runs smooth.
Do a compression test. I'm not sure but the engine may not be a non-interferance engine which means it may have bent valves or more damage.
i HAVE A 98 AND THE BELT BROKE TWICE AND DID NO DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE. The first time I was on freeway doing 75 and it broke. I have a '97 Contour and had no damage to the engine when my timing belt broke. Make sure you check your pulleys to ensure that the bearings are good. Mine were not and had to replace them.
If the timing belt breaks on any engine the damage to the engine is usually very bad.
The engine will stop running. This is not an interference engine so there will be no engine damage. Just replace the belt.
If the timing belt went as in broke/stopped working, I don't think your engine would start. The timing belt controls the camshafts which actuate the intake and exhaust valves. Neons have an interferance engine if the timing belt broke you possibly have bent valves and the engine will spin over very fast and you will have no compression. That's probably not what you want to hear though. Cross your fingers.
All mazda b series with a b2000 or b2200 are a NON interference engine.So in short if your timing belt broke it will not damage the engine.
According to Gates ( they make timing belts etc. ) the 2.3 liter - 4 cylinder engine in a 1989 Ford Ranger is NOT an interference engine so there should be no valve damage
If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."
As far as I know the 2.3 liter DOHC engine in a 2008 Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN
yes!!!! if your timing belt is cracked or split, you should get it in asap! if your timing belt has broken the damage done all depends on what happened to break it/what were you doing when it broke? if you were driving when it happened ( not stopped) there will be extensive damage done if your car was on but you were stopped not as much damage.
There could be bent and/or broken valves. Possible damage to the cylinder head and valve guides. Could be damage to the top of the piston. Or you could br lucky and nothing happened.
