Default Snapped timing belt

Help!! Just had diagnostics check as my 2006 Peugeot 307S 1.4 16v just stopped on a journey on Sunday. They found that the timing belt had snapped. Don't know if they were being deliberately scaring as I'm a woman but they said car might be wrecked and only worth scrapping. What are the best and worst case scenarios both with regards to problems and cost? Thanks

Hi, If their diagnosis is correct, then their comments could indeed be correct, but you could be lucky and get away with just a replacement belt etc. Good luck.

If the belt has snapped, chances are that some damage has been caused to the moving parts of the engine. If you were travelling at a fair speed, it's probably fair to say that the engine is ruined. It'd be a question of whether you'd be willing to pay to have the engine fixed (which could be very costly), buy a new engine or scrap the car. In this situation, I'd imagine most people would scrap the car.

If you were travelling at low speed (less than 20mph), you might get away with having the engine parts repaired, but this is still an expensive job.

It all depends on how much damage has been caused.

If you're unsure on the diagnosis, then get someone else to have a look. It's easy to spot the timing belt (or lack of...) when the cover has been removed.

Sorry for your bad fortune

As reliable406 has said in similar threads, this may be no worse than broken rockers as they are designed to break if the valves contact the pistons which is what would happen after timing belt failure.

Could be curtains. My 307 HDI lost it's timing belt pulley doing about 50mph. My dealer wanted 800 to get all the bits out of the cylinders and repair it. At 185k miles, it was game over!
