Default 2001 Saturn L200...I need tech help ASAP!!

Im thinking about buying a 2001 Saturn L-200 automatic sedan from a individual thats owned it since new for $500. The timing belt broke and I need to know if this engine is an interference or non-interference engine? I asked her if it broke while she was driving it and she seems to think it broke one morning when she was trying to start it. I don't know and you know you can't believe people on things like that. But knowing if it bend valves or not will help me out a great deal....Thanks guys!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

L200 has a 4cyl engine. Also has no belt. It's a chain. Could be something easy...could be something $$$$

For $500, I'd buy it - but only if you are mechanically inclined.

Why? Because a used 2.2l ecotec (dime a dozen) or a used 3.0l (about $.50/dozen, lol) can be bought for under $800 at a salvage yard/fleabay and installed by yourself. Then you turn around and sell the car for $3000

And if you dont want to buy it, let ME know... its its in the midwest, I'd seriously consider buying it myself.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
