3.5s are interference engines. chances are that it has bent valves. how many miles on that motor?

Yep, about 90% chance the valves are bent, and thats being generous.

What they said, there's a small chance that the belt broke at low RPM so no damage was done, but it's slim. It'd be worth putting a belt on it to try it out IMO.

Hook up a timing belt, and run a compression test. If its zero in any of the cylinders, you got bent valves.

Your method is fine too. Just depends on how much work you feel like doing on that one.

In fact, couldn't he use a used belt (from his 3.2) with out spending any money to see if it did indeed cause damage? Not even worry about the water pump at this stage, just see if the compression is good?

Sure, just has to work for a few minutes during the test.

Pulling the heads is a much bigger PIA than just putting a belt on it.

I knew I kept my old timing belt without cutting it for a reason.

lol, but cutting it was so... much fun!

He could always replace the belt in his 3.2 if it's due and use it.

I thought it was just easier to pull the crank pulley first (with having the chrysler puller). Even if I wasn't doing the ASP install I would have pulled it.
