View Full Version : Interference or not?

I'm looking to possibly pick up a car to flip that needs a new timing belt (and water pump and shit while I'm in there).

Its a 1994 VW Jetta III with a 2.0L fourgerbilinder

Is it an interference or non-interference engine?

Google says interference.

Fuck that it probably needs a new engine.

Ok, this car belongs to my Grandpas wifes sister.

Apparently the timing belt snapped..

He replaced the timing belt and it still wont start...

I think the timing needs reset.

The mechanic offered her $200 and she said she would think about it.

If we could get it for $3-400 IO think it would be worth it.

All I would do is try and reset the timing and if it runs, then it would be well worth it.

As others have stated, it's probably facked.

I would obviously check it out before i got it...

That would be my guess.

I don't think I'll buy a car with an interference engine that "needs a new timing belt."

That's like the people that say "needs a tune up" or "the A/C needs to be recharged."

Its like really? You put $500 into a car for sensors and stuff and don't start at the easy shit? Lies.
