Default Question about Infiniti interference

I have a niece who is looking at a 2002 Honda Accord w/ 126K miles, or a
1999 Infiniti I30 (w/ 6 cyl motor) with 91,000. Can anyone here tell me
where to look to find out if the Infiniti is an interference engine?

why would that influence your decision? the real question to ask is
about how the cam is driven and what is its reliability record.

She does not know or have a way to definitely know the service history;
this means that if the car has a timing belt rather than a timing chain
(and is an interference engine), I will recommend that she change it
now, should she buy the Infiniti.

chances are that Infiniti keeps records of service done on their
vehicles.They may be able to input the VIN and print out all the work their
dealers have done on that car.

Also,buy Carfax reports on them both.
See if they are flood damaged,been in collisions,etc.

but he doesn't want an answer, he just want to chat - that's why he did
what he did, not what you did. and it's why nobody's stating the obvious!

Infiniti i30 has a timing chain, not a belt. Whether it is an interference
engine or not is not usually discussed with regard to these engines as it is
not an issue. The Nissan 3.0L engine in these things is practically bullet
proof.

Ah. I see the know-it-all fairy is back.

I'm not sure if I ever stated the obvious, Jim, but **** you, you sad,
sad sack of shit. Go lick the santorum from your sister's anus again,
and try to remember not to get her pregnant again, you ignorant dicksmoker.

For the rest of you, I apologize for this tirade, but I really felt that
someone should take the time to point out that this sanctimonious cunt
should do the world a favor and stop sucking it off.

I am incredulous that you would purport to know what I wish, and only
slightly more disbelieving that you know why everyone else on usenet is
doing (or not doing) what they are doing. The plain truth is that if
your dog took a shit in your ear your IQ would go up 40 points. This is
usenet, so you can do whatever your mom lets you do, but I'd like to
point out that you have your ****ing head so far up your ass that you
are able to chew your food again on the way down.

In case whoever you get to read this to you hasn't made it clear, jim, I
don't require your services in figuring out what I mean when I say
something. Henceforth, each time you make one of these smug,
pretentious, sanctimonious posts, I will be here to excoriate you to
whatever degree I feel is necessary to achieve some balance.

I don't expect it to help in getting you to drown yourself and relieving
the rest of the world, but it surely won't hurt. Congratulations.


RFT!!!
