If the timing belt snapped, the only way to trulyknow the extent of the damage is to take apart the engine and inspect the parts. Then your options are a rebuild or a used replacement engine. Salvage yards often have fairly low mileage f22 engines for good prices.
Take off the timing belt cover and see if the belt really snapped.

its actually a really difficult process, just went through it myself not to long ago. honestly wouldnt recommend you do it yourself. i spent over $400 bucks and its still not fixed. i should have just taken it to a shop and spend $200 and get it running! its on you though just thought id give you the heads up.
