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: timing belt
im sure the valves are bent unless you removed the head to check them but ther is a notch in crank gear near block that lines up with a *** on the block the cam gear has a notch that should line up with a notch in the vlve cover

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.
