The case is that i can get a 2000 mod. 2.0 nice car almost for free.

But the guy has had a timing belt breakdown. The guy knows nothing about cars.

I know this car has an interferance engine.

my question is- how big are chances that piston bearings are shot? Will head-valves take the pressure and save tha short-block?

My idea is to buy a complete new head. Can i use a 1 gen. head?

The valves are usually the only casualties and usually only the intakes get hit. The piston tops might show a light nick where the hit took place, but should be OK otherwise.
I don't know much about interchanges between old and new head assemblies. I see the same reman head (except 1995) is available for all, but EGR and non-EGR might be a difference. An EGR block-off plate may be installed. The 1995 had different size valve cover bolt holes in certain spots for the ignition coil bracket.

ok-tommorow the seller will call me, and im looking forward to hear how many miles car is driven.

I checked on rockauto for heads, and for me it looks likes heads are same from 96-2000. What i dont understand is why the cheaper head (famous brand) is not available on the 2000 model?? quess there must be a difference after all from 99 to 2000 then.
