May have warped a valve in the head causing this,have the compression checked on the engine.


Actually, warped valve will depend on your engine. EZD, 4G64 8 valves and EDV/EDT should not break if timing belt breaks since it's a non-interference design. However, if it's a 4G64 16 valves, it could warp the valves.
