Buying a 1987 Mazda E 2000 - camper van in Norway. 5 speed with the 2.0 Liter carbureted engine (FE??). It has 98 K miles. My main concern is that we will have to pick it up and drive 600 miles over the weekend to get home. I expect no problems.
BUT is that a interference OR non-interference engine?
Just in case the timing belt should happen to break. I do not mind getting stuck, but it would be terrible to wreck an engine. I have researched on-line and can not seem to get a clear answer. Thanks - Lynn David
Hello I will help you with your question,
This is NOT an interference engine so if the belt lets go you should not suffer catastrophic damage.
Good luck with the retreival and please let me know if you have further questions
