transmission I believe the timing belt on it
went out someone told me that when that

From what I have found your engine is an interference engine. This means that if the timing belt breaks or jumps time the valves will most likely come in contact with the pistons. A compression check will let you know if this has happened. Any cylinders showing 0psi will have bent valves.

Thank you very much for your help what should I expect to pay if valve work need be done approx?

$1200.00.
