2000 VW Jetta: Timing Belt Popped & Bent Valves... Got Hope???
Timing belt popped in the middle of the highway at 121,000 miles. We had a new timing belt, serpentine belt, and water pump put in, before we learned that at least 2, may be 4 valves were bent (VW are very tightly tuned and depend on precision timing. When the timing belt breaks some valves may open into the combustion chamber at the wrong time, and they get crushed by the upward thrusting piston). See http://www.alldatadiy.com/techtips/Volkswagen/20050926b.html
We'd either have to redo the head, valves, and pistons, or replace the whole motor... or just get a new car. The fix could easily cost another $1000 - $2000, in addition to what we just paid, without any guarantees.

This is what it means when a timing belt breaks.The valves bend after they
hit the pistons.This is a test i use to determine
quickly if severe damage has occured.A shop may use vacuum or simply
rebuild the head as bent valves become obvious when refaceing them.Valves
of a small stem diameter may not leak as the valve spring pressure
pulls the valve straight enough to seal.
But after repeated cycles of opening the head of the valve will break of
destroying the engine.
Also the valve guides are usually cracked in KIA HYUNDAI heads and the
smalls pieces will go in the engine.I have seen guides cracked in all the
16 valve heads
Worst Subaru Timing Belt Video Ever (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Link to part 2:
It's true that in some ways this is the worst Subaru timing belt
replacement video ever. The main reason is because of the lack of footage.
This was my first attempt at using the GoPro as a POV camera while I
worked. The hands free part was great, the camera intermittently cutting
out sucked. I didn't realize that I had lost footage until after I started
to edit. Once I saw that I was missing come key scenes I became pretty
depressed about it. Especially since I had already sold the Subaru and it
was long gone, so reshooting was not an option. I did the best I could to
pick up the pieces with the voice over. I think it turned out OK. The GoPro
is a great camera when it works. In the future I'll be doing things
differently. For now, if you really need a good Subaru timing belt
replacement video, check this one out from BriansMobile1. He has a few
others as well, including one on the DOHC model.

Peugeot 406 Timing Belt Change
Changing a timing belt on a peugeot 406 2.0 HDi 110 DW10ATED
The car has around 122,000 miles and apparently it had a new belt put on at
79,000 miles but there was no receipts so to be sure i changed it.
It is quite an involved job, a lot of things to do and it needs to be done
right otherwise it can wreck the cars engine.
I would recommend reading the Haynes Manual and this, and reading them a
number of times to fully understand what is involved:
The tensioning procedure i did not show completely in the video as its hard
to show on camera and its best if you read the guide to see how its done.
I also replaced the water pump as its good to do when your in there, the
crankshaft oil seal was leaking hence all the oil/sludge in the area,
engine degreaser was used liberally to clean up the area and timing belt
covers before putting the new belt on.

I hope this video helps to show what is involved with a timing belt change
on a 2.0 HDi DW10ATED engine, but i strongly recommend that you read the
manual and the other guides.
I only intend for this video to help and condense the timing belt
replacement procedure, any suggestions on how to do things differently are
Testing for Leaking/Bent Valves
--Please Read-- :)
Some of the best advice I can offer you about fixing your car is to search
for an online forum related to your car, or even for your specific engine.
If you have a popular car or engine, this can be an amazing tool in
diagnosing and fixing cars yourself!
1. Get kerosene, gasoline, or break cleaner.
2. Tilt head on its side, with the ports of the valves you're testing
pointing up and exposed.
3. Fill the intake or Exhaust ports
with the liquid you chose, make sure to use enough liquid to cover the back
of the valve head completely inside the port.
4. Look at the valve surface in the combustion chamber for leakage. (Let it
sit for several minutes)
5. If there is a leak, you could have a bent valve or just a bad seal of
the valve to the head. You might have to replace the valve, or just use
some lapping compound to lap the valve/seat to resurface.
6. Repeat for the other side if you wish.
7. This is a great time to replace valve seals if you have noticed they are
worn too much.
8. If you have any questions, please post them here and I'll try to answer
You just tilt the head on one side or the other depending whether you want
to test the intake or Exhaust valves.
I'm testing the intake valves in this video. I did this way because I
didn't have the leakdown test equipment, but also because I wanted to
replace my head gasket anyway. I wouldn't say this is the best way to test
initially if you suspect leaking or bent valves because it requires you
remove the head. Try just a regular leakdown test first. But if you're
taking it off anyway it's pretty nifty and doesn't require the leakdown
test tools. There are several methods to do this, this is just the one I
chose in my situation.
1994 Honda Accord w/ Bent Valve
A video illustrating how your 94 Accord's engine will probably sound if it
has a bent valve. Bent valves often happen in cars containing intereference
engines, such as this particular model of Honda. They occur most often when
the timing belt breaks during operation of the engine. This is an expensive
repair, requiring the engine head to be dismanted. To avert this disaster,
change your timing belt every 90k miles or sooner. This particular car had
about 178k miles on it at the time of the video. There was a bent valve in
cylinder 2, and the cylinder lost all compression.
