Do I Need A New Engine

Car Information:
Toyota/Corolla
Year: 2003
Engine Size: 4
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
My timing belt broke, 3 of the 4 valves are at zero and the 4th is at 40%. They say I need a new engine. What do you think? Can I just get the valves replaced and the timing belt replaced?

Answer:
No you don’t need a whole new engine! We can do a valve job with a few new valves if they really are bent! So you know this is not listed as an interference engine. We would want to put a belt on it before make any determination.
