Is a 95 Plymouth Acclaim V6 3.0L engine a interference or non-interference? Need timing belt fixed but not sure if damage was caused to valves when belt failed.

Do you

Jury out on that some bend some don't seems to depend on engine RPM at time of break. If hyway speed 70= good chance to bend.

Was on highway excelerating when belt broke, going maybe about 50-55mph.

Is there a way to know if any valves are bent before having belt replaced?
