Info request--97 Camry

Have a 97 Toyota Camry. 4 cyl. (Not v6) It has a timing belt. Does the timing belt run the water pump? Also, is this an interference engine?

Thank you.

Usually the water pump destroys the timing belt.

No. It’s not an interference engine.

Tester

Thank you Tester. That’s what I thought.
