Sorry to hear that. What mileage and do you know if previous owners had replaced it. If there are some records of timing belt replaced timely you could ask shop/dealer that replaced timing belt to cover the cost. I wish auto manufacturers would use only timing chain or have non-interference engines. I am hearing this kind of issues in hondas more often. Timing belt can break even if replaced like it did in my toyota camry, but it was non-interference meaning all I had to do was get another timing belt.

Yeah only a hundred and twenty four thousand miles on it and I don't know anything about the previous owners or anything I bought it at an auction so what should I do should I just buy new valves or should I by the new heads with the thousand and I have no idea I'm new to this and I don't really turn around Ranch

Just age cracks (1999) alone could be at cause if that was the original belt. Donate it if you are sure about the leakage. My 01 had severe cracks all around when I did it 2 years ago at 172K.

The only way to really no which way to go is to pull the heads and inspect them, the block and the pistons. Typically people rebuild the heads instead of replacing them as long as the head itself isn't damaged.

Bank 1(rear) or bank 2(front)?

You will need to take the head off, examine the valves, seats, guides, replace various gaskets, self locking nuts.
