There are some vehicles on the road that have Timing Belts and are Interference Engine's. These type of Engines have Valves and or Pistons that can get damaged if your Timing Belt breaks.

Click here to see if your car is one of them before it is too late.

Example.....
A 1981 Ford Escort 1.6L is an Interference Engine, snap the Timing Belt and you will have Engine damage.
