TIMING BELT BROKE DOWN

1992 Mazda Protege • 1,870,000 miles

I was running on the Highway when my car turn off, well after I tow it to my house I figure out it was the timing belt, my question is when I replace the timing could something else broke down since the timing belt broke is there anything I should check before replacing the timing belt?

You may have bent the valves since the belt broke. It would require removing the head and replacing all the valves.

After you set the belt, do a compression test to verify
