i've seen it break pistons, so i'd say the chances are good that there could be damage of some kind.

No revving your engine dosent damage it.

When the belt tensioner fails, you have to stop almost immediately or the engine will overheat and suffer serious damage or destruction. I am assuming that the bolt itself is not stripped; the receiving mounting hole in the engine is stripped. And I am pretty sure that the mounting area is aluminum. Therefore, it should be fairly easy to tap the hole for an over-sized bolt. Select a tap that is just larger than the stripped bolt. I would not recommend the JB weld since if it fails, you are stuck without warning. Best of luck!

Well I really have no idea what a ldv is, but if your timing belt breaks and your engine is an interference engine there will be damage. If it is not an interference engine there will be no damage.

On an interference engine the pistons can hit the valves. That will cause severe internal engine damage.

NO, it will not damage the vehicle engine by turning the heater ON before the engine has warmed up fully.

No - a small amount will not damage the engine, though may cause it to run badly. However, a larger amount can cause serious damage, and the tank and engine should be drained.

Petrol in a Diesel will cause serious engine damage if you run the engine. Diesel in a petrol engine and the engine will simply not run. No damage will be done.

No, but it can cause severe engine damage if you keep running the engine.

The engine will overheat and can cause severe engine damage. The engine will be completely ruined if it is not immediately shut off.

If gasoline is used in a diesel it will damage the engine. If diesel is used in a gasoline engine it will do no real damage as the engine will not run.

The 1.8L is not an interference engine, so you should not have internal damage. The 2.0L is an interference engine. Internal engine damage is likely.

Yes, it will damage all moving parts in the engine.

If the engine is an interference engine and the belt breaks you can almost be certain that there is damage. If it is not an interference engine there will be no damage. I could tell you if you had listed the make, model, year, and engine size.

On the Stratus V6 which is an interference engine it will damage the engine if it breaks. On the 4 cylinder which is not an interference engine, no engine damage will be done. However it would stop the engine from running. And, if this happened at a bad time, and you got in a wreck, it could not only damage the engine, it could damage the whole car and you. The belt can break with no warning. Replace it according to the recommendation of Dodge.

Yes, putting petrol/gasoline in a diesel engine and running it will cause severe damage to the engine.

Turbosmart BOV's are designed to improve the performance of the turbocharger system. They will not usually damage a car engine.
