There is no indication in the parts book that it is an interference engine. Most of the time engines with timing chains are not.

All of Ford's belt driven engines are non-interference with the exception of the 3.0L villager which was really a nissan.

SOURCE: timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3

Hello mawbea: My name is Roger I will answer your question. You did not say which engine is in your car. So if you have a 2.0 SOHC engine. If the belt broke you should be Ok. If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are just about a guarantee. How ever with any engine using a timing belt it is possible to bend a valve.Should you need more help please just ask.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received helpful information.Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Ford ZX2-broken timing belt-interference or non?

The straight answer is that it most likely is a interference engine, but you dont really know until its confirmed, plus special tools are needed to align the cam timing. Any repair shop can do a cyl leakage test to confirm that for you.

I put your question into internet explorer & apparently
there are 2 engines in 2001 & 2001 that are interference

Seen the 2002 are the way to go if your buying one.

You can do a cylinder leak down test & there are some
nice cameras that go into small places that are for checking
things even inside your head thru the spark plug hole

Your not going to buy any of that,but can have those services
performed for piece of mind

A compression test is not really giving you the whole picture
that a cylinder leak down test would

Timing chain ford explorer


You do not specify the engine size in your description. It used to be normal that domestic (US) engines were non-interference, but this is no longer necessarily true. However, even if the engine was a interference type, usually, any damage is limited to valves in the cylinder heads. This does not require complete replacement of the engine. Once you determine the engine size, check to find out of the engine is an interference type. If not, replacement of the timing set should solve the problem. Otherwise, you'll need to tear the engine down to determine the magnitude of repairs needed.
