Depends on how much damage was done. Can be as little as $1,000 to as much as $3,000. You will not know until you open it up.

How do you know if your timing belt broke on my 95 Honda civic?

The easyest way is to take the oil filler cap off and get someone to crank the engine, you should see the camshaft or rockers move, if not chances are the cambelt has snapped, it will also sound astho the engine turns over freely. Hope this helps. If your timing belt is broken, your car will not operate- period. Remove the timing belt cover and have a look.

My 1997 Honda Civic lasted for 185,000 miles and 12 years before the head gasket blew and the radiator broke. It could have been made road worthy for about $1600, but it made more sense to put a down payment on a new car.

If the timing chain broke will your car start?


How do you check the timing chain on 1995 Chevy astro to see if it is broke?

If your vehicle is at least 60,000 miles it is recommended you replace the timing chain. If your timing chain broke, your engine would NOT run because the timing chain is what rotates your engines camshafts to open and close the valves. Also, you would have some serious engine damage if you were driving and your engine suddenly just quit and it happened to be your timing chain. There really is no way to "check" a timing chain as it's hidden behind the belt area of the engine (if I'm not mistaken). If you're going to go through the labor of "checking" a timing chain, you might as well replace it, as the average timing chain job costs about $220, $200 of that being the labor.

How do you get a 1992 Honda civic back in timing because of a broken timing belt?

There are markings on the main valve and piston cogs. You may want to find a copy of the service manual, it's readily available on the net and contains many detailed diagrams in instructions there. However, to the best of my knowledge, the civic has an interference engine, therefore you are wasting your time doing this unless you have checked that your valves haven't been crushed by the pistons while the vehicle was still rolling with the clutch up right after the belt broke. There are also a number of good websites like that may have a step by step guide, but please remember that a civic has some known auto-tensioner issues, and a dealership may still be your best bet, as well as the belt itself, civic timing belts are much thicker than those used on most other vehicles. Good luck! take a look at this site for a diagram:

If i were going 10 mph when my timing chain broke on my 1998 Nissan Altima is my engine shot?

No. There are many things that have to happen to blow an engine in this manner. Your engine went out of time as soon as your chain broke and this will sometimes sound like it blew sky high. Replace the timing chain and get it timed and it should be ok.
