My Ford contour 99 model timing belt broke when driving. Its engine is 2.0L L4 DOHC.
I took it to mechanic he says its an interference engine and it has damaged the cylinder. He did the compression test in front of me and 2 of the cylinders leak 30% of the air.
I google this information online and found this engine is not an interference engine. I called the dealership they also say its not an interference engine.
Now before the timing belt broke the exhaust was loud and I wanted to take the vehicle to mechanic a week before the timing belt broke. Does this imply anything. Does this mean the cylinders are damaged or could it be something else.
I appreciate any suggestion.
have the same problem?
