Will my Astra's engine be damaged?
Opel Astral 1.8 Ecotech , Astra G snapped the timing belt while driving this morning . Are the valves affected
In that car's engine, yes, there would usually be damage if the timing belt snaps, but these things are never certain. Best thing to do is run a compression check or use a scope to look for damage before removing the cylinder head.
