if the timing belt goes and your engine gets out of time your pistons will wreck your valves when they collide, wouldn't call that blowing the valves but their wrecked either way blown or bent

Yes they definitely will I just went through that on my 2000 mitsubishi montero 3.0 and the valves were bent


Did you decide to do valves job or get another engine?


I completely replaced the cylinder heads with re manufactured heads new timing belts water pump etc.
