In my reference book it states it as an interference engine. ANY way it really doesn't matter because any person doing a cam job will always treat the engine as interference and work to avoid valve damage. That is the safest way as valves can still suffer damage in free wheeling engines.

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 2000 ford focus 2.0 zetec dual overhead

all Zetec engines (2.0 DOHC) are NOT interference engines. There are deep reliefs cut into the top of the piston to clear the valves when they are fully extended. There will be no valve damage if the timing belt breaks on a Zetec engine.

SOURCE: 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!!!

Is 2002 lexus es300 a non interference engine


The 2002 lexus es 300 has the 3.0L engine, which is non-interference. The later lexus es 330 has the 3.3L engine, which is an interference engine. The even later es350 has the 3.5 engine and is back to non-interference as well as having a timing chain rather than a belt. Hope this helps.

Does this car have an interference motor?


ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

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
