Question about 2004 Kia Optima
A used engine will undoubtedly be your best solution here because the timing belt breakage cause severe internal engine damage that either a new cylinder head or a new engine would cure. The engine would undoubtedly be better in the long run. a new engine can cost anywhere from 500 to 1000 dollars here where I am located in South Carolina and labor to install this is typically close to the same. Unfortunately a timing belt is not a drive train or engine mechanical failure it is a maintenance item so many warranty departments will not warranty something that could have been foreseen and prevented.
