Welcome to Justanswer ! my name is XXXXX XXXXX i will do my best to assist you with this problem
did the old belt break ?
and the engine cranks over but will not fire up after the belt was changed and installed correctly ?
this is a 2.0 engine correct ?
ok more than likely the tensioner failed and caused the timing belt to slip when the timing of the valves v/s the pistons is off the pistons will bend valves
as for how many and which ones are hard to tell until the cylinder head comes off
what has to be done is make sure the timing belt is on correct and do a compression test and cylinder with under 75 psi have bent valves in them
worse case all the valves are bent it will run you @ 9 to 10 hours labor to remove the head and replace the valves if all are bent this job is going to run you @ $ 1500 to $ 2000 give or take for valves and the necessary gaskets
its very rare that any piston damage has happened as usually it does not damage them it just bends the valves
ok im very sorry I didn't explain it better
psi is = pounds per square inch a cylinder needs a minimum of 100 psi for it to work and if a valve is bent the cylinder can not make the correct psi in the cylinder for it to run
yes it will need to be towed
the cylinder head will have to be removed from the engine to change any bent valves
the valves each are @ $ 22 each depending on how many are bent would not be known until the cylinder head is removed to check and replace the valves that are bent
totsal cost for this job worse case can run from $ 1500 to $ 2000
but varrys so much depending on how many valves would be bent
the labor will not increase much at all depending on how many are bent most shops pull them all out and see which ones are bent then just change the bent ones
this engine should be a 2.0 4 cylinder can you confirm this for me ?
ok im pricing the labor as a shop doing the work for you.to remove the cylinder head and replace the bent valves
this engine has a total of 16 valves if they are all bent that's 16 X @ $ 22.00 for each valve
that is $ 352 alone for all new valves and a head gasket kit and necessary fluids will be @ $ 300
then the labor is 10 hours to remove and put the cylinder head back on so that's 10 X's a shops labor rate of an average of $ 100 can be 800 to 1000
1000 + 650 = 1650
if you have someone doing the labor for free or under $ 100 a labor hour then it will be a lot cheaper
they should have a good idea
as if so to say 3 cylinders show low PSI then more than likely the cylinder that has good psi the valve are ok
I would say out of all the ones I have done it seems either all 8 intake valves are bent or just all 8 of the exhaust valves are bent which would only be @ $160 ish for just 8 valves
