The 1998 Rav4 has a non-interferance engine !!!!!

Hi guys, im sure this has been asked a 100 times before by other people but i just would love this to be put in stone for me,

i have an S Reg (1998) Rav4 GLX 2ltr Petrol and my cam belt went a week ago. . . .

Is it a non interference or an interference engine . . . . . .

im hearing so many conflicting things and i know you will know right away !!

Just curious.... Can you please explain what you mean by interference and non-inteference? I have the feeling it is probably a terminology difference from what I am used to.

It refers to whether or not the pistons contact (that is interfere with, meaning bend ) the valves when the cam stops and the pistons keep going as happens when the timing belt fails.

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

Thanks, I should have been able to figure that one out considering timing belts were being discussed and I once had to replace bent valves for this very reason.
