How To Diagnose a Broken Timing Belt



In this video I share my methods of diagnosing a broken timing belt. Mechanical issues are so often overlooked when diagnosing a no start problem and I think this is important information that could help you if you’re dealing with a timing belt driven engine that isn’t starting.

  1. good thing that Toyota Camry's don't have interference engines , otherwise that engine is pretty much toast , at least on a Toyota they are relatively straight forward , on a Alfa Romeo not so much

  2. Is it a good idea to crank an engine with suspected broken timing belt? Could this make more damage to the engine?

  3. Scotty Kilmer calls TOTAL B.S. There is NO WAY that a Toyota that is only 21 years old has a bad timing belt already.

  4. Had one of mine snap on the motorway in the fast lane, 110KPH then the engine goes silent. I managed to get to the shoulder then turned the key to get that depressing no-compression sound .Took the head off, and it had taken one valve clean off, snapping it at the stem! Never assume the previous owner had the common sense to change it when due.
