me and my big mouth
after my last comment my bloody cambelt went and snapped (told you i should have done it
) i had the car towed home spent three hours stripping it down cursed lots as i couldnt see the third bolt on the engine mount (eventually sussed out why it wouldn't come off, stupid place to hide one) set timing slid on new belt and did a test start, no probs so put it back together.
so i can say that through experience the 95 Rav4 3SFE engine is without a doubt 100% a none interference engine.
and next time i buy a part it will be fitted straight away
