Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

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

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.

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!!!
