this is an interferance engine meaning that when the timing belt breaks the pistons and the valves will slam into each other requiring at the very least a complete cylinder head overhaul if not a new engine.


Does the 2000 ford contour have a none interference motor?

The 4-cylinder 2.0 liter engine is a non-interference engine, in that the pistons have "cutouts" in the tops to prevent the valves hitting them in case the timing belt breaks. The 2.5 liter V6 does not require this, since it uses a timing chain, rather than a belt.

Does the 2000 ford contour sedan have an interference or non interference engine?

I assume you're talking about the 4-cylinder engine, and yes, it is a non-interference engine. The pistons have "cutouts"to prevent the valves hitting them in case the timing belt breaks. This doesn't apply to the V6, of course, since it has a timing chain, rather than a belt.

What happens if a 1995 Honda Civic ex timing belts breaks?

Usually if the timing belt breaks you have to replace the head or the bent valves. Sometimes the damage can be much worse and the entire engine can be wiped out. When the timing belt breaks, your cams and valves stop moving but the pistons don't. The pistons will smash against the stopped valves and bent them and on some occasions can break pistons as well.


What is a interference engine?

an engine where, in the event that the timing is off or if the timing belt breaks, the pistons can collide with the valves and actually do damage.
