does it have an interfering engine
I need to know if the 2001 prism 1.8 litre engine will lock up and ruin avalve if the timing chain breaks or binds.
You always run the chance of that happened in the timing chain breaks.
One way to find out is go to your local auto parts store and get a price on a new timing belt, when they look it up it will say whether it is an interference or non-interference engine. I know some GM cars use Toyota motors which are non-interference. Ha ha, the Pontiac Vibe is a Toyota Matrix with different badges.
