Yes, you would have to take the Valve Cover off to have a look at them!

You could remove the spark plugs and get a borescope and look inside each cylinder, you might be able too see damage that way.

2.4 DOHC is listed as non interference with a foot note that valves can hit each other if camshafts are turned out of time. You will likely see nothing by taking valve cover off. You could replace timing belt and run a compression test and that will certainly tell you.

Just do a compression test as Bob suggests after putting a belt on with the proper alignment.

In 2016 we all use an Endoscope to view the combustion chamber along with valves, easy fast and digitally recorded for the client. Regards

Endoscope is for looking in your colon. Most do it yourselfers don't have high tech electronics.
