My experience tells me it is a non interference engine and it is unlikely to have damage.
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.
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.
The engine will stop running. This is not an interference engine so there will be no engine damage. Just replace the belt.
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
As far as I know the 2.3 liter DOHC engine in a 2008 Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN
If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."
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.
what year ? if it is say 2000 sportage with double overhead cam, possible real damage done, this IS an interference engine. In english, if timing belt breaks while engine is running severe damage can be done to valves, cams, pistons,etc. A $50.00 timing belt could easily cost you now $2500.00 to repair engine. If it just broke sitting still and NOT running, $ 458.00 to fix ,include water pump , it is driven by timing belt.
TAKE A WRENCH AND TURN THE ENGINE VERY SLOWLY. IF IT STOPS TURNING YOU BENT A VALVE.
Yes, the 1999 Kia Sportage with 2.0L DOHC is an "interference" engine, meaning the valves can hit the pistons if the timing belt broke.
Chances are there is more damage than just the belt being broke. If the timing chain/belt broke while moving, depending on engine speed, some valves could have kissed the pistons and you might have internal engine damage too. The procedure is the same if the belt had not broke first. Unless you are really mechanically adept, take it to the dealer for repair.
Hi, I am 99% sure that the villager is a non - interferance engine, so they should be ok. The only problem is that I think that the villager came with a timing chain, but it is a Nissan powertrain, so anything is possible. I will look into this and get back to you soon.
Sure if it is repaired correct it will run just like it did before the damage.
if you turned the engine off IMMEDIATLY after the belt broke, you should be ok. If, however, the engine ran for any amount of time with the belt broke - you probably have quite a bit of damange ...
this year model should have no interferance problems a properly installed belt should repair the problem
Maybe, it depends on if your engine is an interference engine.
Engine will not start or run. Whatever you do, do not turn the engine over with the starter. This is an interference engine and if the belt is broke engine damage has already occurred and trying to start the engine will just do more damage. Best thing to do it to remove the cam belt cover and see if it is broken. Another way to identify a broken timing belt is to pull the valve cover and watch the OHC cam or valves while the engine is hand cranked but I would not do this as you can do more damage. Rest assured if you have not replaced the belt in the last 100,000 miles it very well may be 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.
Only if the valves come in contact with the pistons,I would replace the belt and check the compression in the cylinders,The engine will miss if there is a bent valve.I have had to replace the timing belt on my wifes car a couple of times with no engine damage after it broke.
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.
If the timing belt broke on an interference engine, the open valves and pistons would collide and wreck the engine.
