Maybe the timing belt broke.
My timing belt broke while driving on the freeway. Nothing was damaged. I think that I was lucky though.....
If it broke, yes.
if it broke it could cost you several $g's probly bent the valves too
My timing belt broke at 120k miles on my '01 Quest. I don't think it's an interference engine, as we turned it over several times while trying to diagnose.
If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."
No. There are many things that have to happen to blow an engine in this manner. Your engine went out of time as soon as your chain broke and this will sometimes sound like it blew sky high. Replace the timing chain and get it timed and it should be ok.
A timing belt failure normally trashes the engine.
If a timing chain broke, the engine wouldn't run and a compression test would read "0".
If the timing belt broke on an interference engine, the open valves and pistons would collide and wreck the engine.
