View Full Version : Do all Hondas have interference engines?

:confused:

Looking at a 2005 Accord or 2005 Camry.

I know the Camry has a non-interference engine and all earlier model Hondas have interference engines, but what about the new models?

EDIT: For anyone who didn't know, 2003-current Accords are interference engines, but are equipped with a timing chain, not a belt.

Replace timing belt/chain at manufacturer-specified intervals and be merry :)

My guess would be probably. The K24 has a chain though so the chances for a total failure are pretty slim.

Not that it's particularly relevant to this discussion, but not all older Hondas have interference engines. I broke the timing belt on my old '84 Accord years ago with no other damage.

Love the newer accords, even the 4 bangers have some decent pep.

Just do it when it says, regardless of how bad you think the belt is.

True, I am really leaning towards the Accord. The side airbags are standard while the Camry only offers it as an option.

I guess I'm just a bit paranoid since a broken belt can potentially cause major damage.

No, that's the KA24DE (used in later 240SX's and early Altimas).

The K24 is a Honda engine.

Why worry? The belt doesn't have to be replaced until 100k miles. If you're buying new, you may not even own the car that long.

As is the K20. K24 is also found in the Element and CR-V.

Text on these Hondas having timing chains? I can't seem to find it.

To the best of my knowledge none of the major auto makers are using a interference motor.

Great, thanks a lot. :thumbsup: Good to know that its a chain instead of a belt.

I also just found the info about the k24 engine being fitted in:

2002 2.4 L K24 (CRV/Element) iVTEC
2003-on Honda Accord
2004-on Acura TSX

This is more or less moot because both toyo and honda 2.4s use chains.

That being said, the accord has better suspension technology than the camry.

Side airbag is a life saving feature, particularly when tboned by trucks/SUVs, there are studies on this.
