According to Wikipedia def:"An interference engine is a type of 4-stroke internal combustion piston engine. Depending on the design of an engine, piston and valve paths may "interfere" with one another as a result of incorrect timing in their movements. "

Yes, the majority of Honda engines are interference. So if that timing belt breaks, your pistons and valves are finally gonna kiss and there's gonna be some major damage.































You can also call Honda and ask them, they can tell you if you supply your VIN number.
