HONDA ACCORD ENGINE PROBLEM

1997 Honda Accord • 148,000 miles

4cyl ohc is it a interferece engine or a non interference engine?I changed the broken timing belt and it idles different but runs well. Is that because a valve could be jeaporidised? Can there be valve damge to one valve and still run. Should I assume because it runs there was no valve damage or are ther degrees of valve damage? Thanks so much

Yes, this is an inteference engine but it does not necessarily mean the valve would be damaged. Usually when valves are damaged, it would be more than one.

Check the valve clearances, engine compression and ignition timing.
