The engine stops running.

It's a non-interferance engine, so it won't hurt the valves or anything, you just put new belts on & go.

If you don't replace the belts, they will eventually break. Each Cam has its own belt and if the belt for the driver's side breaks, the engine will stop running. If the belt for the passenger's side breaks the engine will either run on 2 cylinders or it will stop running. The EA82 engine in your Loyale is a non-interference engine so your pistons and valves will not be damaged when a belt breaks.

From my recollection of other threads, there seems to be some debate with 95s (or was it 96s?), but 97 and up should all be interference.
