Default Timing belt

Well i was driving on the interstate going about 70 in 5th gear obviously, and suddenly my timing belt snapped. Im hoping nothing got bent but i really need to see if it will turn over with a new belt on. I've called wrenchs auto already but cant get it in til probably next week. Its just sitting at my work. I bought the correct belt already, i would like someone to contact me about coming to my work and checking it out. No money for a tow.. LMK

Well, the car will turn over with new belt but it's the way the vehicle runs during you need to worry about. Hopefully you took it off 5th gear quickly enough or maybe the cams stopped just before dropping them down.
Where is the car sitting at anyways? Pm me the answer....don't post it here!!

Well, the timing area parts would of been a breeze. The internals would have possibly been approximately $300 if the valves were bent. The price is an approximation since most places might charge more. That price cold of covered for the valves, the guides and overall clean up.

Most of the time the "easier" way for people to fix this is to get another head and fix the other one for a rainy day..lol Just all depends one the eprsons wallet and how much time they have available.
