New Corolla timing chain - "Interference" engine?
me it has a "lifetime" timing chain which does not
require replacement. Does the Corolla have an
"interference" engine, where the valves and pistons
occupy the same space at different times in the
cycle? If so, a broken chain would at least bend
the valves, and perhaps require a new engine
altogether. If I plan to keep this car for a long
time, is this a realistic risk? A friend had this
happen to his Nissan and it cost him $2,500.
