Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try help you with this.
This is an interference engine and if the belt fails then valve damage is likely to occur.
Sometimes you can be cheaper to replace the complete engine if you can find one cheap enough.
Repair costs can vary across the country depending on the labour rate of the garage you use.
Parts prices are a bit more stable between regions.
If you do decide to replace the engine then it is worth changing the timing belt and pulleys etc before fitting it.
