yes i am sure it is /u can call NAPA and ask for timming belt and ask them when they price it ,to tell u if it is an interference engine/u can try and put the belt on and se if it runs smooth and has plenty of power,u might get lucky,,,some have,nothing to loose

The maintenance interval is 60,000 miles, but they usally last quite a bit longer before they fail.
This is a non-interference motor , meaning the valves will not hit the pistons if the belt brakes.

SOURCE: if a timing belt breaks
The answer to your question is yes this year vehicle has what is known as an interference engine there is no room for error on these types engines if the timing belt jumps a tooth or breaks you can bet there is valve damage now the head needs to go to the machine shop and have new valves installed or if you know how to do them yourself then you can do it.This timing belt also runs your water pump and in some cases if your water pump goes bad it can play heck with the timing. My suggestion to you is run a compression test on each cylinder and see if you have any compression or remove the valve cover and have some one crank the engine as look at the valves and see if they are all moving or not.
