(*) - Indicates an interference engine that will suffer valve damage if the timing belt fails. As you can see the 4.0 is not listed as being OHC. This would indicate that it does not have a belt to replace so therfore it is not interferance. My advice would be to call the dealer to verify this.




Just because an engine doesn't have a timing belt doesn't mean the engine is not an interference engine. The 4.0L SOHC is an interference engine, if the timing chain breaks or the tensioners fail there will be major damage to the engine.
