Depends on the car. All Toyota engines are not interference type engines, most others are interference types except a select few. Some of the engines were more forgiving than others. If it' a 2.4 mitsubishi, it's an interference engine, and a broken timing belt will cause bent valves, punching holes in the pistons, and the motor will need to be rebuilt/replaced.

Flooded start

That was probably part of your timing belt and bang was a backfire when it jumped time, more than likely you will have to have new timing belt installed. The putts is it trying to fire on a non-compression stroke,don't crank it much, some models the pistons can hit the valves if it gets really out of time and that gets expensive.

Volvo s80 t6 after putting my serpintine belt back on when i started the car a good size of the belt ripped of and wrapped around my harmonic balncer to the timming belt and shut my car right down

Did the piece of serpentine belt actually make contact with the timing belt ? The timing belt should have been behind the timing cover.
And does the engine crank normally ? Normal compression ?
