i believe that 2gs have non interference heads, meaning that they wont damage the valves if the belt breaks. It was awhile ago when I read about that, but i'm pretty sure it'll be fine.

Their interferance motors. The Only Honda that isnt a Interferance engine is the engines in the Honda Pilot. But at Idle I would pop the cyl head off check the piston and valves. If you are lucky it will be fine since it was at low rpm. Look for nice scrapes and dings on the valves and piston top. See how easily the valves move through the valve guids. Andy resistance at all means the valve is bent.
