If you can get a valve cover off, spin the harmonic balancer, or the big pulley on the end of the crankshaft, and JUST A LITTLE BIT you do not want to cause more damage, and if the valves do not move the belt is broken and your engine is shot, it's an interference engine. If it broke while running, (well it's not going to just snap when it's not running) the pistons come up and hit valves that are not supposed to be open, so top end at least is shot and possibly a piston. All this is worst case scenario, if the belt is indeed broken

The Lexus GS300 did not start its life until February 2003.So either you typed the Wrong Date or something is WRONG?
