My wife's Intrepid suddenly overheated so she shut it down, wouldn't start again so I put the obd2 reader on and it said the front timing sensor was bad, replaced that, no work. Then figured out the timing belt was no longer turning the camshafts, so tore it down, water pump seized and timing belt shredded so I was sure the valves were bent like old nails.

Figured would replace the belt, tension wheel and water pump anyway just to see if by some miracle the valves survived

Also replaced the radiator, all the hoses including transmission, all new fluids etc.

And finally buttoned it up today, amazingly running like new

Apparently videos are too large to upload but runs wonderfully, got lucky.

Wow, glad to hear that it did not cause any damage, makes you wonder why yours was ok while many others have bent valves from a broken belt.

Valves have a saying: "When a piston has your name on it, your number's up!"

A good story indeed! Glad to see you were able to fix this in the driveway.

I like the tail end of the rachet holding the tensinor in place. Another LH lives.
