    My son's timing belt broke whilst on the freeway last week and the car just stopped. We towed it home, but have been told as the car is a 2litre it could cost $4200.00 to fix. Is this correct? Apparently if valves have been bent, but how do you know if they are or not and the mechanic is just ripping you off?

Yes it is possible for the valves to get bent depending on how long it was ran after the belt broke

Does the timeing belt have to be on for the crank to turn the cam when instilling the timeing belt?

Are you replacing a broken timing belt? Or are you replacing a belt because it's due by miles? If the belt is broken, i strongly suggest inspecting for bent valves. Daewoo is notorious for bending all valves and breaking valve guides in the cylinder head when the timing belt breaks. The broken belt is also common.

Would there be a noise / sound if the valves bend during this time??? I Lost all Power to my Car and just pulled it off the road, and my mechanic told me my valves were bent. he took everything off and...

Sounds like the Timing belt broke while the motor was running, the engine would have died when that happened unless you busted a cam shaft. if the Timing belt was broken and it happened while the motor was running there is a 90% probability that you bent every valve in the head assembly from contact with the pistons.

My timming belt broke and i replace it and i only can compression on the number 3 clyinder what do i need to do

your Daewoo has an interference engine, when the timing belt brakes the valves hit the top of the pistons, and get bent. you will need to remove the cylinder head an replace the valves.....sorry.

My 2000 daewoo nubira blew the timing belt and bent all the valves but the pistons seem fine is there some way to make sure they are ok?

clean the tops of the pistons and check for any hairline cracks and damage, if none is found they should be ok

the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
your engine is an interference engine, which means if the timing belt breaks or skips, the valves will hit the pistons.
if your belt broke you will have bent valves. so the heads will need to come off and bent valves replaced.
