Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra
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.
