So i had ordered a new timing belt the other day and i was planning on changing it out 12/26. This saturday my belt snapped while driving a week ahead of when i planned to change it. So i towed it home and started on it hoping the valves were not bent. I changed it myself in about 6 hours after watching a couple of youtube videos. after i got everything set back up and crossing my fingers it started right up and ran better than before. In time and everything. :) 02 3.3L

Hey ashton, that is exactly everything that I am looking forward to do very soon. 03' 83k miles. Do you mind if i pm you a few questions on how you did exactly all of that? I've never touched a car engine a day in my life and i'm looking to learn how. (17 years old, first car ever)

Just follow the directions listed in the Factory Service Manual in the EM section starting on page 89 here.
