2005 dodge timing belt

Asked by Jun 08, 2018 at 04:36 PM about the 2005 Dodge Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 neon, I woke up one morning and my car would not start, I got the code from the dash it said P0340 so I changed my camshaft sensor, car still will not start, it wants to though. My question is if it has a broken timing belt and it happened when I was not driving, could  my valves still be damaged? and would trying to start the car damage the valves?

Before you crank anymore check the belt.

It is at the mechanic, I am just praying that me trying to start did not bend or do any damage to my car, I am female I do not know much about cars

Mechanic called and said its broken belt, I just don't know anymore I am trying to ease my mind till I get the final verdict


It is a interference motor,but you should be just fine.
