hyundai accent broken timing belt
My sister's car a 2000 hyundai accent broke the timing belt as she was driving. I have found out that this is an interference engine and I can not turn the cam pulley by hand, so bent valves I am sure. Here is the question though what is the likely hood that the engine is ok? I have never messed with OHC timing belt stuff, and I am more worried that the rods are bent and the pistons are trashed, but a jy engine is a possibility too. thanx josh
