    No damage,free running engine.Replace belt and water pump and keep on trucking.
    Cam,crank& oil pump seals should also be replaced. But timing belt and H20 pump is a minimum!
    Be sure to check all componets&replace as needed.Now if you plan on driving the car a lot and
    are going to keep it on the road,then replace all timing componets(kit) and seals. Valve cover gasket
    and pcv valve also.Real durable engine even with high miles.
