Have a look at www.gates.com manufacturer of all kinds of belts including timing belts. Their website indicates that most Honda engines are interference engines. In a word, most likely it will damage the valvetrain if the belt breaks. exhaust valves bye-bye If you broke the timing belt on an 88 Accord, don't waste your money getting the engine fixed or replaced. You can purchase a 1192-1993 Accord for less money than you would spend repairing your 1988 Accord.

yes this is an interference engine damage to valves will occur if the timing belt breaks and the engine is turned

It has a chain and the chances of it breaking are slim to none. It is designed to last the life of the engine.

The 4 cylinder Accord uses a timing chain that normally requires no maintenance and will last the life of the engine. The V6 Accord however uses a timing belt that must be replaced every 110,000 miles. The V6 is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage.

If belt broke it probably caused damage to the valves. If replaced before any breaking, it was probably installed wrong and the timing is off.

The 2001 Honda Accord 4 cylinder and V6 both have a timing (cam) belt. The belt must be replaced every 105,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine. If they belt breaks you will have internal engine damage.

Both the I4 and V6 engine in the Accord have timing belts.

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.

96 Honda Accord has an interference engine. Replace the Cam belt wrong and you have serious engine damage when you start the vehicle. For this reason you should seek the help of a professional.

If you do not know how to do this then leave this job to a professional. Do it wrong and try to start the engine and you will have internal engine damage as this is an interference engine. Not a job for a novice.

This is an interference engine and as such if you do this repair incorrectly you will have engine damage when you attempt to start the vehicle. I recommend you have this done by a professional.

Unless you are skilled and know what you are doing leave this repair to a professional. Do it wrong and you will have engine damage the instant you try to start the engine.

The engine in your Accord is an interference engine. For that reason alone, it is critical the belt be replaced correctly. Do it wrong and there will be severe engine damage as soon as you start the engine. Therefore, I recommend you have the belt replaced by a professional. This is not a job for a novice.

Yes! This is an interference engine and damage to the valves, head, pistons, is likely if the belt breaks. Replace the belt at 90,000 miles.

User Avatar

The 1995 Honda Accord V6 has a timing belt that must be changed every 90,000 miles. Also replace the cam belt driven water pump at the same time. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage.

No, the '99 Toyota Camry has a non-interference engine, where the piston and valve path do not interfere with each other. The timing belt breaking will cause your car to stop working, but will not cause valve damage.

The Honda Accord engine of this year is an interference engine. Install this belt incorrectly, start the engine, and it will suffer damage. For this reason, I suggest you take it to a professional or buy a repair manual so you can do it right.

Do it wrong and you will suffer severe engine damage the instant you start the engine. So leave this repair up to a professional.

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.

It will make no sound, it will just break. When it breaks your engine will stop running. If the engine is an interference engine you will have serious engine damage.

The 2.4 litre four cylinder engine in a 2005 Honda Accord has a timing CHAIN
