    The engine will stall and not restart until repaired! No it isn't a Rotary. Replace timing belt and it's componets as needed, IF needed! I dont 'think' this is an interference engine, Parts store can tell you for sure when they look up the belt. ANY engine has the potential for piston/valve contact if it gets out of time @ high rpms!!
