    If the belt slipped it probably bent some intake and or exhaust valves. This is an interference engine. That means if the timing belt brake or slips you may cause engine damage (bent valves etc.).
    This will be an expensive repair.

    thank you, i have been doing some research and was thinking it could be bent valves. i really love these cars, i am not worried about the cost (so long as there will be a return on it once it is fixed) as i already have a car and this will just be a spare time thing. thanks for the help though i will no doubt be on this regularly if i win the auction.
