Just anted to confirm that my 2005 buick rendezvous has a non interference engine as i need to replace the timing belt/chain and was concerned with driving it


you need to say what engine it has ( 4,v6,v8)
a qualified mechanic always treats an engine as intereference fit regardless because either engine can have valve damage when the failure occurs
If you have not broken a belt or chain and you set the timing marks up properly before removing the belt or chain and do not turn crank or cam/s after the belt/chain is removed there will be no damage done
that only occurs when the crank is or cam/s are turned without the connection to each other

Does a 2.0 2008 nissan Sentra have non interference engine


All Interference, engine. An interference engine is one that has insufficient clearance between the valves and pistons if the cam stops turning due to a broken timing belt. The result is usually catastrophic engine failure. God-Bless!

I have an Isuzu kb 350 and has a broken timing belt and now is failing to start because of not sure of piston position in relation to dual camshafts


be VERY careful! Most engines are interference motors and a bust timing belt results in catastrophic failure when the valves contact the pistons because they are out of sync!

Timing belts usually come with markings - you would almost certainly find the compression TDC for cylinder 1 (not exhaust TDC - if the air blows thru plug hole when piston is rising its compression - if the air is NOT blowing out plug hole its exhaust tdc - rotate once more).

Now you will have to find the timing marks on the camshaft(s) and set according to the manual.

What is a interference fit engine


Interference engines are those in which the pistons can make contact with the valves, and will do so if the timing belt (or chain) breaks, usually resulting in extensive damage. This is why such engines have belt replacement intervals which should never be exceeded. Non-interference engines may safely have the crankshaft rotated to any position while no timing belt is installed without pistons hitting valves. Why do we have interference engines you may ask? This is done to enhance performance by allowing longer cam opening times and higher cam lift.

Timing jumped and the car stopped,i turned the engine and it was free spinning,does this mean the head is messed up


There are two types of engines in this regard--interference and non-interference. Many newer engines are now interference types to increase performance, but this means that the pistons can hit the valves causing major damage when the timing belt breaks. Non-interference engines will suffer no real damage when belt breaks, so you need to get the engine type from under the hood on a data plate and google search your exact engine. Good luck.

I have a 96 dodge caravan with a 2.4 motor is this non interference or interference?


There are very few engines that are non interference ( from my data books regarding timing belts and chains) that you will have an interference engine. It relates to the fact that the valves will interfere (hit) with the pistons in the event of belt/chain failure

Replace timing belt diagram


Your timing belt should be replaced every 50-70,000 miles. Carmakers have specified the replacement intervals for timing belts. In this database you will find these timing belt replacement intervals along with a little technical information regarding the valve configuration - interference or non-interference. In an interference engine, the valves and piston share the same air space. They never touch, unless your timing belt breaks or skips, and this is a catastrophic failure that requires removing the head and replacing bent valves. Non-interference engines do not risk this contact if the timing belt goes. Nonetheless, either can leave you stranded, so regular timing belt replacement is very important.8767e98.png1bda33f.jpgd4c1513.jpg

Is the engine a non interference engine? Trying


Dear Unsure About Timing Belt Replacement......You are CORRECT ...this xterra motor does have whatthey call an interference engine in it.......and yes it does require exact placement and alignment of the cam to crank timing marks. Cam lock stabilizers are invovled for a pain free install of the timing belt.... If you have never done one before I would suggest that this not be your first attempt......try smaller and work up to something like this.......If you do need any more help though please get back to me....thx for your time!!!!!HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Our timing belt broke on our 95 honda accord and we got put another motor in. It runs but doesnt have power and oil is leaking bad when the car warms up.


first of all do you know if your engine is a non-interference i would think a 95 would be non-interference ( another words the valves do not collide with the piston in the event of belt failure ) for the power loss issue i would suspect your cam to crank timing ( align timing marks )
exactly. as far as your oil leaks, as mentioned by another comment,
your seals, ie. rear main, front crank, and your cam seal would of been simple to do prior to stabbing the engine, except for the cam seal you now have quite a job, if you did the install. if you paid a shop
take it back. this is not even close to good business
