Interference in gears is mating of two non-conjugate or non-involute tooth profiles. Basically when the tip of pitch circle of pinion O1 tries to dig out (interfere with) the tooth of the gear wheel O2 .
Why should you avoid interference in gears?
Interference occurs when the addendum of the involute gear goes on the increased. When this occurs there is a increase in the toothspace and decrease in the teeth of the particular gear. So with reduction in the toothspace there occurs a slipping in the involute gear. Inorder to reduce that particular condition we have to avoid interference in gears. ...

Is a 99 Chevy Tracker 2.0 a non interference motor?
Yes it is. Mine bent 6 valves. When the upper timing chain guide broke and chewed up the rest of the guides and gears. If the valves were bent than the engine is an INTERFERENCE ENGINE. A non interference engine has clearance between the valves and the cylinder head so if the timing belt lets go and the valves are in the intake or exhaust position they would clear the cylinder heads causing no damage to either. So the answer to your...
