98 Kia Sephia 75,000 timing belt
A few days a go when i was driving my timing belt broke. I am not sure when it broke. I noticed something when i was breaking for a red light and all my indicators where on. I tried restarting it and i was no good.I discovered that my timing belt broke. It looks like the teeth grinded off. since I am not sure when it happened what are the chances of bending a valve.

It isn't real promising, but I have seen them break and no damage done or little damage. Compression testing will tell you how you did.
Remember the more you crank it the worse the chances get.
Look for a head, before you tear into it, if the compression is bad.
