Can driving with bent valves destroy an engine


Ok guys heres a little history first, my timing belt snaps and i replace the timing belt, pulley, water pump and all belts. Of coarse the timing belt snapping resulted in bent valves. I drive the car with bent valves and it shuts off on me again while driving. So i tow my car to the shop and they tell me my engine is done. My question is, can driving with bent valves cause more damage or possibly destroy the engine??

Worst case scenario? ....umm, your pistons are now garbage, valves are garbage, scoring, etc. etc. etc.....man full rebuild time or get another motor. Is rebuilding the engine worth it to you? Only you can answer that one.

The car obviously didnt bent all the valves or it wouldnt have run after you did all the work. But yea, either way, the motor is toast at a minimum a rebuilt head.
