Is a nissan 2.4L DOHC engine an interference fit?


autodata identifies all nissan 2.4 liter engines as interference fit
there are special requirements when fitting the belt so a workshop manual would be a big advantage to do the job right
replace all idler pulleys as the nearings will be at service life as well
if there is indication of oil stains in the covers , replace both cam shaft and crank shaft seals as oil is the major destroyer of cam belts

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.

Does my 2003 dodge caravan have an interference engine


Not sure but if doing belt yourself I will give you important tips. 1) before removeing T/Belt set engine to TDC nr 1 there should be marks on the crank and cam (s) gears that line up with a mark on the block / head. 2) prior to removeing tension to belt get liquid paper & mark cam gear(s) & crank gear to point on block / head. 3) mark T/Belt to cam(s), crank, balance shaft if fitted. 4) release tension & remove belt. 5) transcribe marks from old belt to new belt & make sure correct amount of teeth. 6) fit new belt so YOUR marks line up. 7) have tensioner suply presure to belt. 8) turn motor twice by hand to make sure pistons no hit valves 9) Make sure YOUR marks line up if YOUR marks line up it has to be right. 10) Very IMPORTANT if spring tensioner lossen locking bolt again to take up extra slack in belt. 11) tighten locking bolt. 12) put back together.

Timeing belt broke have replaced now not fireing


You either have the belt 180 degrees off. So you have to take belt off and turn crank only (slowly) around once to its mark again, but first you need to go to a website that lists motors that are called "interference fit" engines. (Think Gates belt co. has a list) If your motor is an interference fit then when belt broke the motor is trashed. Interference fit means that pistons can hit valves if the belt breaks. That is why they tell you to replace the timing belt before too long. Also if motor is interference fit when you try and turn crank go slow because you may bump into valve.

Timing belt


forget what the makers say re belt change GET IT DONE EVERY 60K (you will soon find out if its an interferance engine when it snaps) just so you know,its not the belt that causes the problem but the tensioner being too tight when fitted.....(by a trainee)

How can I check if my 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander engine is the interference or non-interference type.


always assume that it is an interferance engine so you may want to change the cambelt at 60k intervals......otherwise what does it matter, unless some idiot has not done the belt changes regularly and its broken......then if you cant turn the engine/camshaft its f......

Broken timing belt on 2004 dodge Stratus


It can happen, I'm not sure if you car is one of these. But when a timing belt breaks you take a gamble that your car is not one of these.
That is why the timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 miles!
Sorry!

My timing belt broke and the mechanic i gave it to says its an interferance fit but i keep haveing ppl tell me the 97 3.5l isn't but the 98 and up are so is mine a interference fit or not?


Not that it matters now since it is so late but for other viewers, no, it is NOT an interference engine. The 3.5l built from 1993 - 1997 are non-interference engines. It wasn't until 1998 that the engines could be damaged by a broken timing belt.

01 civic timeing belt went, are the valves ok?


It is an interference engine and I always change the water pump when I replace timing belts because it's cheap insurance and you don't want to go there again if it goes out in a couple of months after you replace the timing belt.
