Does the vehicle listed above use a non or interference engine? I need to do the chain and need to know which one I have in my car. This site suggests 24 valve is non.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

I'm not sure what you are telling me. It is a non-interference engine. You indicated you were told it was a non and then said the site was wrong because it is a non-interference engine. Please explain.

Thanks,

Joe

I'm asking because mine may have jumped. It's hard to start so I'm leaving it alone to repair it. But I don't know if it's a non-interference engine version. It's a 24 valve v6. I went to AutoZone, and they got it as a v6 24valve. I'm not sure if it's okay to repair. I don't want to waste any money on it if I can't make it right.

This car has a timing chain, so it is an interference engine.
