We all know the party line: Timing belt snaps = major problems!
Yet, few go beyond this. What exactly happens?
I have heard that valves get bent.
Hmm, that makes sense:
- Belt breaks
- Cam stops
- Valves left in position (maybe open position)
- Piston still moves, comes back and hits the valve? (Where cam would have closed it)
Is this basically what happens?
