Default Broken Timing Belt??? Beware I'm a Noobie!

Ok here we go, I came into this repair midstream. The alternator has been replaced, as well as both the camshaft position and crankshaft position sensors. The only code it is showing is P0340 - No camshaft signal at PCM. They've already checked to see if they'm getting the 5v at the sensor and have a good signal from the camshaft sensor to the PCM. This is were I came into the repair. I know just enough to be dangerousness under the hood. I checked to see if they had any spark form the ignition coil and nothing. I opened the timing belt upper cover just enough to mark the belt to see if it moved on start up. Neither the timing belt nor the camshaft moved. Possible broken timing belt? If so is there a way to change this belt without discharging the AC?

Do a search, you'll find that some people replaced the belts/water pump themselves and stated that the AC didn't need evacuating.

Last few places I went to said that apparently they had to evacuate/recharge which would net another $80 bucks on top of the cost of belts/pump/labor.

Be surprised how many timing belt threads are created each week, so take your time looking. You'll even find a complete write-up or two.

Good luck, buddy! It's doable, but not fun!

Have some one send you the engine section from FSM.
Look in the how-to guides, there's a time belt one and a head gasket R&R,
between the three, you should be able to 'get 'er done!'

Thanks for the info guys, but I think I'm going to brake down and take it to the shop for this one. I just wish there was a quick and easy way to see if it is broken or not. If not I guess it good to get it done before it does brake she about 6k under 100k.

Seems you already did verify it's broken, crankshaft is turning and cams
aren't!
