Interference or non Interference


Recommended Posts

Hey all, hoping for good news. Is the 2016 1.0 titanium X ford focus an interference or non-interference engine? Timing belt as gone at about 20mph just as I had enquired about getting it replaced the other week.

Interference, engine will be scrap financially. Cheaper to source a used engine and fit it. 

Just as I feared, not my first timing belt to snap on me but I fear this is going to be much more expensive the the 700 I paid the last time.

That's surprising tbh, the recommended interval is 150k or 10 years!  Do you know if the wrong oil or any oil flushes have been used?

It's got the the correct oil but it was flushed August last year.

Oh dear, that may be the cause then.  These use a wet belt that runs in oil, flushes can degrade the belt prematurely.

Would 100 % be buggered? Is there any chance to salvage it? Could take the head off and have a look?

 

I've had a ***** timing belt on a previous car (driving along a dual at 70mph) and had to get valves replaced, this car I was doing 15mph if you're lucky as I was U turning with traffic blocking my way so I'll wait and see. Fingers crossed.
