At least engine head must be removed for inspection and repair. When head removed you can estimate also if any damage on pistons top surface.

SOURCE: How can I tell if the valves are bent from my

It depends on a couple things. First is whether your car's engine is free running or interference. I'm pretty sure it's the 2.0l 4 cylinder if so then it's whats know as an interference motor. This means the piston and valves can interfere with each other and cause damage if the timing belt is broke. That doesn't mean it did just that it can. There are a couple ways you can use to confirm whether they are bent or not. But the only one that will be absolutely sure is to inspect them. All other options like a compression test will require the engine to turn over which may cause more damage if in fact the valves are bent.
Hope this helps.

Second hand head from wreckers & new headgasket is probably cheapest way, or just pull yours off & replace bent valves & refit, shouldn't cost more than a few hundred if you can do it yourself. Would bbe worth the price of a new manual if you're unsure how to go about it.

Does a broken timing belt automatically mean bent vales?

No you don't always bend valves typically with 4 or 6 cylinder engines are equiped with free floating engines that when the chains or belts break it allows the engine from creating greater damage to other parts of your engine

2003 timing chain jump how serious is this problem?

Broken timing belt can cause significant damage. Bent valves and possible damage to cylinders. I would seek another mechanics view. It is unusual for a belt to break with such low K's. You could have a mechanic visually check for damage by removing the head or weigh off the cost of putting a new belt in and having the mechanic check each cylinder for compression. Likelihood of damage is greatly dependant on the engine design if there is no clearance between piston tops and valves significant damage is much more likely. Do consider another mechanic in my opinion.

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.

I had the same thing happen, No, I was told this is not one of the engines that allows the piston to contact the valves. I replaced the timing belt 2 years ago and had no valve problems.

Engine has no compression

when the timing belt broke it also bent the valves,hence the broken rocker arm. pull the head and see the valves are bent

Replaced timing belt not running right

The Lanos engine are an interference engine. If you have bent valves, remove a plug wire one at a time and see if there is no change in the idle. My guess, one of them isn't going to change anything. That would be the cylinder that has the bent valves in. I had a Lanos in my shop with a broken timing belt and the head had several bent valves. I wouldn't be surprised at all if you also have bent valves.
