I could never find a definitive answer anywhere (yes I searched), so I'm asking! Anyone know if this car is interference or not? Some how the timing chain broke (or another component within). Is the car salvageable? Bent valves = no :)

Kuddos to someone who knows for sure!

sorry I'ts a timing question. Some engines have valves that share space with other valves. The difference in times of pistons firing stop them from colliding. If the timing goes out on an interference engine, you get bent valves. If it's non interference, you don't have to worry about the timing going out and bending valves.
