If the timing chain breaks on my 1996 ford Taurus will it bend the valves too?

The car would not start if the chain had broken,pure nonsense

The plastic guides may be worn & the tensioners gunked up

Chains seldom break,belts break

Did your mechanic do a cylinder leak down test

The more I read questions on this site,the more blessed I feel,
that I never in 49 years, needed professional help,they don't
do much & very well at not much

The mechanic should have a data base to know if it is an
interference motor,not tell a customer things that upset you
& speculate

Look up the info & test,do something positive,like actually
road test a car with the customer driving

If they don't do that I would run

Faint to loud humming noise while driving and turning...

Could be either a loose belt or you are low on power steering fluid,or the power steering pump could just be worn out.

1996 Ford Taurus just developed a power steering pump noise.

Make sure it is full of power steering fluid. Fords use generic power steering fluid you can buy at any parts store.Or you can try a power steering additive like Lucus and it may help as a last resort to replacing the pump .

Power steering pump making noise

It may quiet down for a while but the damage is done so the pump will eventually need to be replaced.

I have a loud humming noise when I turn the steering wheel

Could be one of three things: Low on power steering fluid loose belt do to a weak belt tensioner or the power steering pump itself.

Making noise when turning steering wheel but no leakage

The power steering pump that is used in your car is notorious for noise issues, it is a loud whine which gets louder as you turn the steering wheel right or left, flush the system fluid and replace the pump.

Check engine light comes on. 1996 Ford Taurus.

Hello, I would go to Autozone and get a free diagnostic check to see what codes are coming up in your system. Something as minor as bad O2 sensor can lead to a clogged catalytic converter in a matter of months resulting in bad gas mileage. So just for precaution I would get the codes ran just to make sure something minor won't become something major. To get the light to go off you can have a shop do it for you or you can unhook your battery for half an hour, then pump your brakes ten times and your check engine light should go off. I hope this gives you some guidance and help solves your question.
