Question 1st saturn no worky

I bought a 2000 lw2 v6 3.L. at 96000mi. timing belt broke. I replaced the belt and now it wont start. no compression in 5 of the 6cyls. Im told the valves are bent. Can any one tell me what would be the best way to fix this? Is there a kit or kits that have all the parts I would need? Can some one let me know what parts I need?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Oh dear, this is bad news. Minimally, each head requires a valve job and most, if not all, valves will need to be replaced. Generally, the head gasket set will contain all of the seals and gaskets required for the job. Valves are historically priced individually and not as a kit. Take a look at http://www.rockauto.com/ and look up their pricing information.

There is, however, a significant consideration: it is unknown at this time what damage may have been sustained at the piston heads when they collided with the valves above them. The only way to ascertain that is to remove the cylinder heads and carefully examine the each piston's surface. If a piston has been damaged, then it will require a full engine rebuild or replacement. This really becomes a matter of weighing costs and time.

Going by Wikipedia the V6 used in the L-Series is a L81, which is shared by these model/years:
19972001 Cadillac Catera
19951997 Saab 9000
20002005 Saturn L-Series (best bet)
20022003 Saturn Vue (2nd best)
You can use http://car-part.com/ to find something local, plug in your year & make/model, what your looking for (engine), zip code, and hit search
My area shows 80k miles to 150k miles and prices from $750 to $1200.

I am sorry for your troubles.
Totally stinks for a car with such low mileage.

Your title made me crack up though
