AGCO Auto Quick Tip:

The term interference can be misleading with regard to engines.  Any engine may suffer damage under the wrong conditions, if the timing belt or chain breaks.

List Of Interference Engines

Millions of engines use timing belts.  Some are interference engines and if the belt slips or breaks, engine damage normally occurs. While other engines may be listed as non-interference this can be misleading.  Any engine may suffer damage under the wrong conditions, if the timing belt or chain breaks or slips.  

 

This broken timing belt cause the engine to fail

Information resources vary and many opinions conflict on what is and is not an interference engine.  We have found no way to compile an accurate list.  The safest method is to consider all engines as an interferrence type and replace the timing belt when it is due.
