Default 05 galant timing belt

I have a 2005 Galant 2.4 L SOHC. The timing belt has stripped the teeth at the crankshaft completely off. Couple questions.

1 - Interference engine? According to google it is.

2 - The teeth were stripped off on starting, not while driving. What are the chances my valves did NOT bend.

3 - Kind of related to the 2nd question, should I just throw a new belt on, line it all up, and hope for the best? If not what should my course of action be?

option 3 is your best bet...be careful..if you install the timing belt wrong it will damage your engine and your engine will need a rebuild.
