Happy New Year everyone!

Got a 2001 Mazda 626 towed in. Broken timing belt. Does anyone know for certain if it is an interference engine or not. Gates says freewheeling, AllData says interference. I am finding conflicting info all over google. Don't want to sell a timing belt replacement if it has bent valves, the customer already expressed a desire to get rid f the car if it is that bad.
