Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you.
All Toyota engines
with timing belts are 'non-interference' engines. This means that the valves will not contact the pistons in the event of a timing belt failure.
If the belt is broken (or jumped a few teeth), it will not start.
In my shop, it is a standard recommendation to the customers that whenever we see a timing belt job come in, we Always recommend replacement of the water pump
. The extra labor is only 1/2 hour...8 or 10 additional bolts and clean the mating surface of the block.
What has probably happened here is your water pump failed and caused the belt to break. Any time you have a coolant leak in the water pump area, and the leaking coolnat gets on the belt, it weaken the belt considerably. You belt has probably slipped a few teeth if all you had was a leak. If the pump seized up, you would lose the belt.
The recommendation I have for you is the same. Replace the belt and the pump at the same time.
