Does the 2.2 4L engine have bending valves?

Asked by Feb 18, 2007 at 01:14 PM about the 1996 Toyota Camry DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does the 96 Camry 2.2L 4Cyl. engine have bending valves? If the timing belt breaks while you are driving, do the valves get bent? Is this engine salvageable w/ a new timing belt, water pump etc.? OR Do I need a whole new engine? I am receiving conflicting advice.

Hello, When you are receiving conflicting advice, go straight for the source. AutoZone has a number of free Repair Info Guides for certain cars, including yours (I checked). Go to http://www.autozone.com and enter in your vehicle information. Then click "Repair Info" and "Repair Guides." There you will find great diagrams and troubleshooting for your car. Best of luck!

When I get a problem like this . I take the engine head off. And check all valves. There very easy to take off. Your looking for a bent valve. When you find one make sure it did not damage your Engine head. They do that a lot. Good luck.
