Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Mazda Protege 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive 91,000 miles
I have a 2002 P5 with a 2.0L engine. Is this engine type interference or non-interference engine? Mazda dealer tells me I should replace timing belt ASAP but owners manual recommends replacement @ 105,000. I am currently having no performance issues with the engine. If timing belt breaks, will it damage piston and valves? Should I replace timing belt as a precaution or wait until timing belt breaks?
have the same problem?
