      Year/Miles?

      Most likely the valves are bent and you will need new valves or another head, along with a timing belt job of course (belts, ALL PULLIES, water pump, etc).

      Rarely, things can also break in the lower block, but not often.

      Yes, I am interested in how many miles, also. It won't help you but it might help someone else. Thanks.

      I hope that the damage to your engine is slight, or even, hopefully, none.
