4th Generation 2000 V6 Interference engine or not?

My understanding was that the v6 in a 2000 Camry is a non-interference engine. But I see in Gates' timing belt replacement manual they indicate it is an interference engine.

Who knows for absolute sure if it is or not?

your engine is non-interference

Signature Suspended as it is in violation of signature rules.

No, don't plan on screwing up the t-belt install. It's my wife's car and she just passed 60K miles and she's all over me about replacing the belt. I keep telling her Toyota says 90K miles on these engines. I just don't want to be wrong about the belt lasting AND valves land up getting bent! Then she'll be able to tell me I told you so!

i think v6 1mz-fe is 90k interval for timing belt
and i4 5s-fe is 60k internval, no damage to engine if timing belt broke
but i am not sure if the broken belt will mess up the pulley and other mechanic parts along the way.

Typically if the belt breaks you are not going to have any major damage done to anything. Now that is not to say that when you go to replace it you wont have other things that need replacing. You may still ahve to replace seals and waterpump and pulleys jsut due to age and normal wear. I have never seen a d Toyota engine with a timing belt do damage to the valve train when the belt broke. I was a mechanic for about ten years and specifically a Tyota mechanic for about 3 1/2 of those and never saw one damaged. Now as we all know anything is possible but I think you would have to be turning some really high RPM's to do any major damage if the belt were to break.

^^ That is exactly what I was thinking. Of course things do wear out...and if I'm the T-belt due to age, I will change the water pump as well.

As I mentioned earlier, I just don't want any serious damage if the belt lets go. It will be enough of a pain to get everything retimed.

Actually timing any of the toyota engines is prety easy. They give you all the marks that you need jsut line the marks up and put it together you are ready to go.There are marks on the head and the cam gear you line up then marks on the crank gear and the oil pump housing to line up and you are ready to go.
