I was driving tonight going about 35mph and heard a pop and the car died, I pop the hood andsee a broken timing belt cover as well as a broken cam gear!! Any advice? do you guys think I have bent valves? should I pull the heads and have them checked? Are these plastic cam gears known for breaking?
The car is a 1998 2.5 with 140k

Something probably came loose under there and caused the gear to break. It is unusual for one to break. Have you had the timing belt or anything else changed in that area?
