My friend's '99 Camry just ate the timing belt. My friend says it's a 2.4 liter engine. According to the online list of engines, it should be a 2.5. The 2.4 is a diesel. She has a gasser. Can anybody confirm? The actual question is whether or not the vehicle has an interference engine or not.

According to Rockauto the only 4 cylinder engine on a 1999 is the 2.2L which is NON interference

2.2L non interference.

No such thing as a 2.4L until 2002, and there isn't a diesel one.

Unless you wanna count the 22RE in the 80s, which isn't relevant.

It's the 2.2l 5sfe engine. Non interference. No worries about the broken timing belt.

The camry did not have a 2.4 until 2002 at that was the 2az which has a timing chain, not a belt.

Europe also had a 2.4 gas after 2002, unless someone did an engine swap he doesn't have one.

Thanks everyone, this is good news. I didn't get to see her car and I couldn't check what engine it's got. She only knew it was a four-cylinder.
