My daughters 2000 crv 2.0 engine appears to have a broken timing belt. I am an old school mechanic, worked on some cars, power sports equipment and had a small engine business for some years. I am about to start pulling the engine appart, and have the basic understanding of repairs. I also have haynes and chilton manuals for her car. Can you guys give me any advice on areas of concern before I begin. Also is there a good place to by valves etc .
Thanks any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

Before you start tearing the engine down. Have you replaced the timing belt 1st then do a compression test?
No I have not tryed changing the timing belt yet.

My daughter said the engine quit suddenly, she tryed cranking the motor a few times. A friend of hers said that the cam shaft were not turning. My assumption is that I have bent valves etc. with the broken timing belt. From what I've read is that the 2.0 is an interference engine. Any help is appreciated
Thanks

Yes, it is an Interference engine. Sometimes you will get lucky. Install a new timing belt & manually turn the engine , see if you get good compression.
