Default TIMING BELT

Well I called the local place about the timing belt for the
1998 toyota camry ce 4 cyclinder. and they are telilng me they can
check and see if it has been changed and in the event it broke, there
would be no engine damage because there isn't enough power ??

Does this make sense??

Thanks,
Josh

No, it doesn't. The 5SFE engine has sufficient clearance between the open
valves and the piston crown to not constitute a problem if the cam stops
while the engine is revving. Power has nothing to do with it.

From posts in this forum in the past, the same applies for the V6s. Dont
know if the new alloy V6 is the same, but would be surprised if Toyota
suddenly changed their design criteria.

The new 3.3L V6 in the Camry SE is an interference engine.

Ooops,...live and learn! The increase in swirl or mixture agitation is
probably worth it for power and economy.

If it is an interference engine, then it probably has a chain driving
the camshaft rather than a belt.

Nope, according to our dealer, the 3.3L is still a timing belt. If
memory serves, recommended interval change is 105K.
