On an interference engine it can damage the valves, heads, and pistons.

A broken timing belt on a Ford ZX2 will not damage the engine. The 2.0 ZETEC engine used in the ZX2 is a non-interference engine which means the pistons will not come into contact with the valves should the belt break. Because of this the valves will not be damaged and no engine damage will occur.

The engine will turn on the starter, or with a wrench on the end of the crankshaft. However it will not run. If the Timing belt breaks, when the engine is running, this can cause extensive damage to the engine.

Chances are it will not. What will damage the engine is that truck that runs over your car when the engine fails as you try to drive in front of it. Don't take the chance. Change the timing belt.

If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage but the engine will not be ruined. It can be repaired.

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.

Car wont run & on interference engines there will be serious internal engine damage.

It can. The intake valves can hit the exhaust valves.

Daewoo Matiz is listed as an interference engine. There is a most likely chance of engine damage ocuring in the event of the timing belt failing

On a 2005 Ford Taurus : The 3.0 L " Vulcan " V6 engine has ( 1 timing CHAIN ) The 3.0 L " Duratec " V6 engine has ( 2 timing CHAINS )

The Taurus / Sables are equipped with a timing chain. No scheduled replacement is necessary. The only 3.0 Ford Taurus that had a belt was the SHO model, which had a Yamaha built 3.0 V6. You do not need to change a timing chain as a general maintenance item, unlike a timing belt. Generally timing chains are only changed on very high-mileage motors if they are being rebuilt or refreshed. In most cases by the time the engine is due for a timing chain change, it could use a rebuild anyway. Some cars have timing belts. Timing belts and chains need to be replaced at the first sign of damage. If the chains are not replaced, the engine will come to a grinding halt and suffer severe damage. Chain The 3.0 liter engine codes (1)or (u) and 3.8 liter engine code (4) engines use a timing chain.The Taurus SHO engines code(y) and code (p) use a timing belt.The engine code is the 8th digit in your serial number,count from front of the number. Replacement of timing chains is not a regular maintenance operation. If there is no specific problem, leave it be. Your Taurus has a timing chain and so do all others except the Taurus SHO. Never, as it does not have a belt, it has a chain. The 3.0 liter - OHV - Vulcan V6 engine has a timing CHAIN It has a timing chain. If you have a 4 cylinder engine, or a 3.8l V-6, you have a timing chain. If you have a 3.0 or 3.2L V-6 also called a SHO engine, you have a timing belt.

If the timing belt on a 1.6 Astra breaks, it can damage the engine. It is more likely to damage the engine if it is a timing chain, though. A timing chain is made of metal and a timing belt is made of a heavy duty rubber.

The Ford Taurus does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain. The timing chain is designed to last the life of the engine, and does not need routine replacement.

A marble sound under load indicates the engine is out of time. Have the ignition timing checked and the timing chain/belt for damage or excessive play.

It has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine.

if the timing belt is not moving when engine is cranking,it means you have broken a cam,or a belt not keep cranking as you can damage other parts of the engine such as the valves

Your car has the 1NZ-FE engine featuring VVT-i (variable valve timing with intelligence). This is a non-interference engine, with a timing chain. While a broken chain could cause damage to your engine, it is less likely to cause damage on a non-interference engine, and if the chain is damaged (but not completely snapped) you will often know it because it will make a lot of noise (stop driving it at that point and get the chain replaced). The chain is generally considered good for 250,000 miles unless it begins making noise.

On a 1998 Ford Taurus ( no ) The 3.0 litre " Vulcan " V6 engine has ( 1 timing CHAIN ) The 3.0 litre " Duratec " V6 engine has ( 1 timing CHAIN to each cylinder head , so there are 2 timing CHAINS )

The Ford Motor Company made the Ford Escort zx2 2.0 motor, a "non interferance engine" meaning when the timing belt breaks, it will NOT damage your engine components. -Antwon00

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.

A timing chain, that needs to be replaced, can cause your engine to run rough and lose power. A broken timing chain can cause significant engine damage.

Timing belts only get loose if the tensioner is broken. If that happens the belt will slip and your engine will be out of time. It will either not run at all or run very badly. On an interference engine you could have internal engine damage.

No , the 3.8 litre V6 engine in a 1995 Ford Taurus has ( 1 ) timing CHAIN
