    If this happens while driving in an interference engine ,you wont drive very far, it will quickly stop running,and possibly bend a few valves in the head, not to mention possible piston damage also,anytime one breaks on an interference engine it will hurt them.

    Here's how....
    When the belt breaks on interference engine the timing sequence of the entire valve train will cause massive danage and failure to the valves and pistons. The timing belt is just that. It opens and closes the valves in the correct sequence of the general movement of the cycles of a four stroke engine #.1 Intake, #2. Compression, #3. Ignition, #4. Exhaust. When the timing belt breaks The valves stop moving up and down in the correct sequence of the rotation of the camshaft. For a very few seconds the crankshaft continues to rotate the connecting rods and pistons up and down slaming into the open out of phase valves till the engine destroys itself and completely stops running.

    Your's is 99 model more than likely NOT an "interference engine" though ,there wasn't man of them built after the mid,90s. So it may be ok, you might need to look in a manual though to find out if it is,the owners manual provides some of this information,in the back under maintenance it should tell about it. I hope your's is not an interference engine. Go ahead and pull out that bolts and install a new belt. Good luck

    if you want to gain power and new look and feel, change engine. take note that the cost of this would be higher than regular overhaul. why? tendency is once you have acquired your new engine (specially if surplus), you'll definitely overhaul it. not just overhaul, but blueprint it to factory specs if you have the manual.

    if you want to maintain your original engine and want to save on cost, just do the regular overhaul. just be sure to have measurements made and compared with the manual. if you decide to take this route, there is a catch. be sure you still have a good block and head. if you have a cracked block, then proceed with the change engine. kung head lang naman, just get a surplus head and have it overhauled as well.

    my suggestion is to have a compression test first to make sure that the engine really needs an overhaul/replacement.

overhaul or replace new engine
