Understanding of interference engines. The belt and it is not the chain link.
You have to change that belt minimum 60k miles everytime max 80k miles if your lucky. If it breaks which it did, valves are bent, pistons are gone, the engine is complete junk. You now need to buy a new engine or get rid of the car. Big price to pay for a $250-$300 repair at a autoshop ( part and labor). It happens sorry!
