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

you have a large paperweight on your hands. Most likely the rod bearings are now hammered and rods bent and holes in pistons. Find you a junkyard motor and swap in over a weekend.

how many miles?? i would watch putting a new head on an old bottom end....just my opinion you might be able to find a used motor cheaper than doing all that work.

My gf ended up getting one from a guy who couldn't afford the repairs. Leaking head gasket and broke timing chain...her dad which is a mechanic of 30 years said f'it and bought a junkyard engine and put it in. Said it took him less time for the motor swap than him trying to pull all that and fix it. I think he bought the engine for 600 or so.

thanx guys just found a jy motor w/ 63k on it for $520 and a 6 month warranty didn't think it would be that cheap, going to the timing belts and waterpump on it before I put it in tomorrow.

www.car-part.com is a really good website, lets you search a ton of surrounding junkyards for anything.

Glad you found another engine at a decent price, I know your sis is real happy cause breaking timing belts can get real expensive.

Shop i work at installs used engines and transmissions. Along with new belt and water pump, we change rear main, cam and front crank seals. I'd also suggest changing every sensor(put originals on). Also front trans pump seal if its an Auto.

8 valve or 16 Valve motor?????

8 valve MIGHT be ok and just need a belt. Infact i'd be willing to bet it is ok.
16 valve motor........ umm yea its a paper weight.

Take the head off the car.

I've seen lots of import motors break the belt and sometimes the heads are fine. 90% of them I've seen just the valves trashed and the pistons are fine.

Only in like 5% of the time I've seen a valve go through a piston. (Generally people aren't racing it when it breaks the belt.).

Replacing the head isn't that hard on a 4 banger ohc car.

My 2000 GTI broke the timing CHAIN at 62k miles and i was in 3rd just to shift to 4th racing a focus SVT ....... right around 6k+ rpm.. 4 of the 6 pistons had new valve clearancing

that motor was fucked.

Funny thing is VW claims the timing CHAIN is a lifetime item.....
Good thing i got a new motor under warranty.
