Can anyone provide an authoritative answer to the effects of a broken
timing belt on an 87 5kcstq? I always understood that engine damage
would result due to collision between valves and pistons in this engine.
However, I have recently read literature which suggests otherwise with
respect to VW/Audi gas (not diesel) engines. I'm no mechanic, so those
of you who consider this simplistic please forgive me! Also, the issue
is academic at this point since I replaced mine prior to breakage only
10k miles ago or so. Just wanted to resolve the issue!
