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.
No, it is a non-interference motor
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
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.
Only the 1999 Ford Taurus SHO has a timing belt. The engine is built by Yamaha and NO it is not an interference engine. Replace the belt at 100,000 miles. All other Ford Taurus's have timing chains.
This is a non-interference engine, meaning if the timing belt breaks it will not damage the engine.
