Broken Timing Belt damages some Engines without Piston to Valve Interference
Next to some timing belt engine applications in the RockAuto.com catalog is
the note "Interference Engine." This usually means the pistons will hit the
valves if the timing belt breaks or slips while the engine is running.
MotorWeek's Pat Goss explains that some dual overhead cam (DOHC) engines
are severely damaged by a broken timing belt even if the pistons do not hit

Porsche 944 Timing Belt Failure BENT Valves
Porsche 944 Timing Belt Failure & subsequent results. Got a 944 Porsche
2.5lLiter 4 Cylinder. Unfortunately it has an interference head. Some
mechanics tried to "fix" it not knowing what "interference" means. They
replaced the timing belt and bent the valves even more. They gave up the
2nd time around. Good thing they never finished the job as it would not
have worked anyway.

Timing Belt Replacement
1.Install No. 2 idler pulley (if removed). Install and tighten bolt to
specification. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates smoothly.
2.Install No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring (if removed). Pry No. 1
idler pulley away from timing belt area as far as possible. Temporarily
tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Ensure idler pulley is clean and rotates
3.Using crankshaft pulley bolt, rotate crankshaft so timing mark on
crankshaft sprocket aligns with timing mark on oil pump housing. See. This
will position keyway in crankshaft sprocket at 12 o'clock position.
CAUTION:If reusing timing belt, ensure reference marks on timing belt align
with reference marks placed on crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. Ensure
timing belt is installed in original direction of rotation.
4.Ensure all sprockets and idler pulleys are clean. Install timing belt on
crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, No. 1 idler pulley, and then No. 2
idler pulley in sequence.
5.Install timing belt guide with cupped side away from crankshaft sprocket
and flat side toward timing belt. Install No. 1 timing belt cover and new
6.Align crankshaft pulley key groove with key in crankshaft. Install
crankshaft pulley. Install and tighten crankshaft pulley bolt to
7.Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on compression
stroke. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with mark on No. 1
timing belt cover. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing
belt aligns with upper edge of No. 1 timing belt cover.
8.Rotate camshaft, and align hole in camshaft sprocket with alignment mark
on camshaft bearing cap. Install timing belt on camshaft sprocket. If
reusing timing belt, ensure reference mark on timing belt aligns with the
reference mark on camshaft sprocket. Ensure tension exists on timing belt
between the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets.
CAUTION:DO NOT rotate crankshaft counterclockwise, as viewed from timing
belt end of engine.
9.Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt 1/2 turn. Rotate crankshaft pulley 2 full
revolutions clockwise from TDC to TDC. 10.Ensure timing mark on crankshaft
pulley aligns with "0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover, and hole
in camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. If
timing marks are not aligned, remove timing belt and reinstall. 11.Rotate
crankshaft clockwise 1 and 7/8 revolutions and align crankshaft pulley mark
with 45-degree Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on No. 1 timing belt
12.Tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt to specification. Install No. 2 timing
belt cover and gaskets. Install and tighten spark plugs to specification.
13.To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Install all
bolts/nuts on right (timing belt side) engine mount before tightening to
14.On Camry, when installing control rod and bracket on strut tower and
