2006 Jeep Wrangler 4cyl timing belt blew

2006 Jeep Wrangler

Hey I have a 2006 Jeep Wrangler 4cyl and my timing belt blew. My dad said he can hand crank the engine but my mechanic said if it’s not 0 tolerance then the engine could be bad. I was only going probably about 20 mph or going into 3rd gear. My question is would the engine still be good? My jeep turned off as soon as the timing belt blew.

Engine should be fine, the 2006 2.4L is not a interference engine. Install a new timing belt (part# T265 from Gates) and she should be good to go.
