Customer Question
2009 odyssey timing belt...

2009 odyssey timing belt broke while driving replaced timing belt aligned crankshaft and camshafts to TDC but engine wont start

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the timing belt? Have you ever had to change it before?

I just replaced it as the tensioner pulley disintegrated and the car died in the middle of the road replaced tensioner pulley and hydraulic tensioner actuator

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Odyssey yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just explained to you that i replaced the timing belt tensioner pulley and hydraulic tensioner confirmed that the crank shaft and camshafts were at top dead center car turns over but doesn't attempt to start

have fuel and spark so cfp sensor has to be working. the engine doesn't shudder when you try to start it. you don't here that da- da- da- da-da sound when trying to start. as i said before the actuator tab on the timing belt tensioner pulley broke off and the actual pulley disintegrated along with taking out the hydraulic tensioner this is while driving at 50 mph. i have observed on line that an interference engine will cause bent valves in the engine if the crankshaft moves when the camshafts are not moving give me your thoughts

Hi , My name Greg and i will be assisting you with this issue .

Okay timing belt snapped replaced and no start .

What you will have to do is do a cylinder compression test on all cylinders .

You will most likely find that you have a few cylinder or all with no or low compression .

this engine is a interference engine, meaning when the belt snaps the pistons are going to come into direct contact with the valve and bend them.

You confirm low or no compression you will have to remove the heads and replace the bent valves.

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
