Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
Looking for information on whether the 2.2 L 4 cyl camry engine is an interference engine or not. Recomendations are to replace timming belt at 90,000 to 100,000 miles. If not interference i would wait a bit instead of doing the preventative maintenance of replacing it
The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.

The info I have seen is about 100,000 mi for this car
But it is really dependent on the wear on the belts is in certain different climates.
The belts can break at any time. 100,000 is just a rough estimate.
Some engines will be damaged if the belt is broken, like Hondas, others will not, like my old Pinto.
So it's a gamble, we all have to guess and hope it's accurate.
So I would say "ask your Honda dealer."
Hope this helps.
