Yes....recently most overhead cams and heads lock up at 0 degrees so not to break the pistons or valves.

If the timing belt (chain ) broke or jumped the car would not have restarted after your son shut the engine off. (The motor would have stopped on it's own.) Timing belts are an issue with most modern cars and if the motor is what is referred to as an interference engine there will be valve damage. The other possibility is that some components from the butterfly valves in intake manifold were sucked into the cylinder head causing damage to the cylinders , pistons and valves. No matter what the cause its going to cost a lot to repair.

Cant find water pump on pontiacsunbird2.0hofi 1993


What motor is in it? Probably the serpentine belt drives it and it looks like a small bulk off the side of the engine held there by 5 small bolts or so.. If it's a 2.4L DOHC 4 lunger, the water pump is driven by the timing chain.
