Did she try to restart the engine?
|Quoting Saintsman (Reply 2):|
I'm afraid she did, though she said that it wouldn't turn over. I can't work that one out though as it should have turned the bottom end. She doesn't live near me so I can't look at the car myself. She'll be at the mercy of a local garage.
|Quoting Superfly (Reply 3):|
This is how it usually happens. When timing belts/chains break, the driver doesn't know it instantly. The car just shuts off without warning and naturally try to restart it. That is when the valves get warped.
|Quoting Bongodog1964 (Reply 5):|
Any restart attempt would likely (as in this case) fail to turn the crank, as the valves welded into(onto) the pistons will stop it moving
|Quoting Saintsman (Thread starter):|
Being diesel I'm hoping the valves will be set above the pistons and won't have done any damage.
