According to this website by Gates, a maker of timing belts, that engine is free running and does not have an interference problem.

Will a 96,97 year,clutch kit fit a 95 year model?


clutches are measured in clutch plate diameter. Unless there is a significant increase in power in engine between years then there is a good chance that the clutch kits will fit . In your case you are going down in years so the only thing to stop you is the clutch plate diameter . I am inclined to think that it will. Check the kit numbers in the spare parts shops
looking on the net an EXcedy clutch kit toyota rav 4 1994-2005--- sxa10r, sxa11r. That tells me that it is the same clutch kit

Does a 2008 4runner have an interference engine?


Vehicles with "interference engines" will catastrophically damage the engine valves if the timing belt fails, instantly. The VIN and owner's manual may be able to tell you which type you have. From what I've seen, yours is not that type.

However..

Why take a stranger's word for it?? You should have your VIN ready when you call the local Toyota Dealer's service department. They will be able to determine which engine you have with no uncertainty and tell if it is indeed a non-interference engine or not. Plus, they'll be able to tell you at which mileage the belt should be replaced.

Good luck!

My 1998 toyota canry timing belt broke. Is this an interferance motor? Did It destroy the engine?


no you most likely bent valves on inlet side, pull the head and check for any other damage it all really depends on the rpm when the belt broke. ( rate me thanks )

it sounds like you ground the spacers between the gears. have a look under the gear shift. pull the gear shift off then look at the transmission spacers. you will see where the gear shift sits see if some spacers look like the rest.
