Question about Cars & Trucks
Is my Ford 4.0 liter engine na interference or non-interference engine?
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.

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

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
Play around on You Tube & learn all you can
