2.0 TIMING BELT DAMAGE

1995 Plymouth Neon • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 185,000 miles

1995 Plymouth Neon 2.0 mileage: 185,000. I had a timing belt go on this car and I was wondering if there was any chance of the engine not being ruined. I do realize the 2.0 4cyl SOHC is an interference engine, but I was wondering if there was any chance of the valves surviving such an ordeal. I could not get a strait answer out of the service dept at the local dodge dealership. They obviously wanted me to bring it in.

One way to tell for sure is to replace the timing belt and check compression.
