    driving on the freeway?? good chance they may be bent. you need to al least get it back in time and do a compression test and hope for the best.

    If is interferance head design then valves will be bent. I believe this design is not. Can call parts house and when they look up timing belt the application a lot of times will say if is or not. Check water pump during reinstall.
