Answers :

If the timing belt tensioner has collapased the DO NOT drive the car until you get it fixed. Severe damage can occur. This keeps tension on the belt so it doesn't slip off and also keeps the valve timing right. If you drive it you risk the possibility of it falling off and the pistons hitting the valves.
There will be if the camshafts jumped timing. Check the marks on your camshaft and see if they are relatively close, usually if they are two teeth or more apart then engine damage has occured, however even if it jumped more there is still a chance that the engine was not damaged.
