Blown timing belt

So I was headed up to the mountains yesterday when all of a sudden my car lost all power. When I checked and took the valve cover off it had shredded my timing belt. I had just swapped in a jdm H23a and it hadnt even been in the for 1500 miles. It got a brand new oem timing belt from honda before I put it in. Why would this have happened on such a new timing belt. What kinda of damage am I going to be looking at when I pull this apart.

Re: Blown timing belt

Auto-tensioner prolly failed.


Did Honda or a shop do the swap? If so, they should cover EVERYTHING, and I wouldn't accept any other answer from them.

Re: Blown timing belt

Is there anyway that Honda will be responsible for the belt and what happened? It was an OEM timing belt and only had maybe 1500 miles on it.

Prepare to get laughed outta the dealership once you tell them you installed it yourself.

That's why he said "prepare to get laughed at"



Let me know what you find, Mike.
