    Usually the timing will be off if their are missing teeth on the belt or it has skipped over the pulley teeth. They sell them as a kit, timing belt and replacement pulleys and belt tensioner.

    It is a non interference engine, so the valves are safe. You need a new timing belt and new gaskets for the timing belt cover. You need a mechanic to do the replacement job. Replacing a timing belt is a precision job that takes experience. It would be a good idea to also replace the water pump so you're not left crying about overheating next August.

    If timing belt teeth are missing the valves are likely bent. I doubt that it's worth putting a used motor in a 2000 model year vehicle.

    It doesn't take a lot to replace a timing belt it takes knowledge you have to make sure that the little dots lineup take the tension off of the at the pulley tensioner the old belt will come off. And you put the new belt on. When you put the tension back on the pulley you have to make sure that the dots are still lined up. If not you have to take the tension off line the dots up again. And try repositioning the belt and reapply tension until the. Stays lined up

    Get a QUALITY or OEM timing belt kit from a car parts store.  Replace the water pump too if you still have some cash. If not, you can get by replacing the water pump gasket if you do not plan to keep your car for long. 

    Get a service manual and follow the procedures.  Take it slow and use a zip tie when installing the timing belt.  Remove the zip tie after you release the pin on the tensioner.  Turn the engine at least 10 times by hand and make sure the timing marks are still aligned.

    there is a horse that is missing ALL IT'S HORSESHOES.

    Basically you stole all its luck.  You needed to replace that belt in year 7 of ownership so you should be putting in Belt 4 (Car came with a belt) so 0-6;7-14;15-21  These are the extreme numbers, you could change it sooner if you wanted to.  Get a repair manual and you can do it yourself in your garage with basic tools.

    If you can see that the teeth are missing, you have enough of the engine apart.  Then it is pretty well sliding the old belt off and the new one on.  Make sure the #1 piston is at the top of the compression stroke and that the timing marks stay relative to each other.
