Basically I was driving and something snapped in the engine! And now I spoke with some guys at a garage and told me that if the engine is noninterfaced it will cost me much less than a interfaced one to repaire! Sorry I am not a engine car expert to explain better maybe you will understand what I mean!

Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response
Ok I assume you meant interference or non interference engines
The 1.8tdci is a contact engine (ie :the vakves will hit the Pistons of the timing goes
If the timing belt or bottom timing chain has snapped then there will be damage
In each case I have seen this happen there has always been valve damage
You can attempt to for a new bekt dtc and regime it but in my experience there will be damage to the valves thus the cylinder head will need to be removed to inspect the damage
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice
