If the engine is a 4 cylinder it is an interference motor and and there is most likely there is severe damage caused by the valves hitting the pistons. The 6 cylinder is a noninterference motor and should be OK. You will still have to line all the timing marks up to replace the belt.

What happens if a 1995 Honda Civic ex timing belts breaks?

Usually if the timing belt breaks you have to replace the head or the bent valves. Sometimes the damage can be much worse and the entire engine can be wiped out. When the timing belt breaks, your cams and valves stop moving but the pistons don't. The pistons will smash against the stopped valves and bent them and on some occasions can break pistons as well.


What happens on a 1991 Honda Accord when the timing belt breaks?

Because the Accord 1991 has an interference engine, the pistons will hit the valves and either bend them or break them or both if the timing belt breaks.

If you break the timing belt on 1996 Honda civic will it ruin the engine?

YES, the Honda engine is considered an interference engine, which means that the valves will come in contact with the piston if the belt breaks. under rare circumstances if the car is idiling i have seen the belt break and not hurt the valves. hope this helps It is very likely, if you have broken your timing belt. IF you notice it right away and bring the car to a complete stop immediately-- include turning off the engine--you may escape engine damage. This is not a guarantee though.
