Is there an easy way to see if the timing belt/chain is broken

Asked by Jul 22, 2017 at 10:39 PM about the 1994 Toyota Pickup 2 Dr SR5 V6 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Yes, do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero, timing belt is broken. Also, if you have a distributor, remove the distributor cap and crank the engine. If the rotor, under the distributor cap, doesn't turn the timing belt has broken. HTH. -Jim
