Cool IT's Broke

2002, 2.4 liter
Hi all looking for a little advice ? the cruiser just stopped on the road and the trouble shooting began. changed the timing belt and reset the timing. the car started up and ran great for about 15min. Went back under the hood and found that the front pin on the cam shaft pulley was broke and let the cam stop, causing the car to come to the drastic halt. Need to know how to get the broke pin out of the cam shaft without damaging the hole and how to reset the cams in sync with the crank shaft.

Picture of what is broken?

From the sound of it, you may need a new/used cam shaft.

Did it actually have a broken timing belt?

Cam pin sheared?





Get new pin (see parts manuals) drill out (VERY, VERY HARD steel) and re-install.







Might want to make sure cams are properly torqued or they'll shear again.

So what are the odds that the valves survive if one of these pins shears off? I had the exhaust camshaft pin shear off because of an improperly torqued pulley bolt.

Is it really just a matter of replacing a $1 pin and a lot of effort?

May have to replace some valves with the other valves on the other side still being driven. Replace the pin and time it and check the compression.

My notes say part number is: 6100997

I think you're lucky and there's no bent valves
