    More than likely you would have heard or even felt the valves hitting the tops of the pistons. See if you can remove the cambelt cover and look to see if tit has become "slack" or turn the engine over and see if the belt rotates.

    when my cambelt went on my cavalier, it was just like i'd run out of petrol, it just stopped, turned over ok, lucky no damage, replaced it and off i went

    NB if it hadn't of snapped, i'd of never met my wife, I was supposed to be going out in Mk that, but without my car, i couldn't go, so went out in dunstable and as they say, the rest is history
