Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Normally if the timing belt fails when you turn the car off, then the car won't restart there is a really good possibility that the valves are not damaged. The only way to be 100% sure is either installing a new timing belt, or performing a leak down test. I have done several timing belts that haven't failed while going down the road with success, so I do agree with the mechanic. Good change the valves are fine.
