Re: timing belt broken
Posted to Technical Discussion Forum on 12/19/2012

Yes they are interference engines. I have seen a couple of these and they both had valve damage. In both cases I installed the timing belt and performed a leak down test on all of the cylinders and found a couple cylinders with excessive leak down through the valves.
