The serpentine belt snapped because the water pump siezed. It wouldn't be such a tragedy if I wasn't on the way to brew with my girlfriend. There goes the cherry wheat

the fact that he said "water pump" makes me think it was the timing belt and not an accessory belt....

Hopefully it doesn't take any valves out with it if that's the case!

Yeah,most 4 cylinders have the timing belt run the wp. V6 on up have the serpentine belt as an accessory drive. Our V6's at ford have chain drives under the front cover that keep the cams & crank in time. Just like the old 427 SOHC motor.

Or make all timing belt engines non-interference! If my timing belt breaks, I'll have to replace the whole short block.
