My car recently died while idling at a stop light. We discovered the timing belt slipped and it was unable to start. It is an interference engine, but I was wondering whether since it slipped while idling what the chances are that there wont be any piston or valve damage. I would hate to put any more money in to a totaled car or if there is a chance fixing the timing belt could make it run again. Any advice?
