no, the valves are far enough away from the pistons for this not to be a problem You will be dead in the water where it breaks and need a tow. As a 'repair', expect to pay somewhat more for replacement than were you to schedule this item as a 'scheduled maintenance procedure'.

No because unlike Hondas this machine doesn't has an interference design where the pistons could hit valves when timing belt breaks.


before it breaks and you get stranded


This is an interference engine. If the timing belt snaps it will cause a loads of problems: bent valves, damaged pistons, damaged cam shaft. Replace the belt every 60,000 miles.

On some engines yes, and on others no. Depends on if it is an interference engine or not. Replace the belt at the recommended interval as listed in your owners manual and you will not have to worry one way or the other.

That depends on the engine and what belt (timing or accessory).


The valves can hit the tops of the pistons damaging or breaking either.


It means it's time to replace the belt. It makes noise because it is slipping. Replace it before it breaks or else you could damage other parts.


?If a timing belt or chain breaks while the engine is running the engine will be severely damaged and some of the valves will probably bend and damage the pistons. A timing best needs to be replaced BEFORE it reaches the end of its life and breaks. Car manuals make this clear.

Yes. Valves can be damaged when the timing belt breaks.


No, by the time your breaks are making a bad noise, they will have damaged the disks.


I dont belive you can; it may have stretched, so I would suggest you replace it before it breaks and locks your hood down.
