Interference or not interference? That is the question.


1983 Tercel 5 door hatchback, 3AC engine, standard tranny. I'd like to know whether or not this is an interference engine. It's at 166000 miles, timing belt was replaced at 121000. Guess I've got some miles till my next change, but I'm curious since I've seen a couple of parts websites listing the 3AC as an interference engine, but a couple of posts on a 4X4 Tercel Wagon saying that it's not (with pics and all) but that's the 4X4 Wagons and I'm not certain that both use the same engine.


Just curious... :crossfingers:

I know it's been awhile since you posted this, but if you haven't found your answer yet, I can confirm it's non interference. My belt snapped on the road, and after towing it home and 6 hours of working on it, had my new belt on and was back on the road. I've put 10,000 miles on it no problems.
