good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist this motor is an interference motor which means when the timing gets such as a belt failure, valve damage can and most likely will result. in your case. it sounds like you have valve damage. I would do a compression test to verify. you can rent a tester at a parts store to check the compression Roy
