Repair shop had to fix the half moon key that hold the gear that goes around the timing belt. They replaced it but now they say there's no compression in cylinders 4 and 5. They think the valves are bent.

If this engine is a non-interference engine would the valves get bent?

No. It just stopped running. I just filled up with gas and was driving on the service road about to get on the highway when it died. Engine stopped running. The engine light didn't come on until I tried to start it again. Temperature was fine. No steam or leaking coolant.
