    i broke my timing belt on my 91 accord and i bent the valves on one of the cylinders and i have a dead cylinder. The engine stalls on me while I'm idling or in neutral but if i give it some gas it keeps it going (sometimes) besides me melt the catalytic converter can i cause any more damage by driving it around to school and stuff.

    stop driving it now. fix it before you drive it again. heads should be cheap for that car.

    yes. If you keep driving it don't plan on being able to fix it. You'll have to replace it.

    ha ok. how hard would it be to do that or rather how expensive would it be to get it fixed.

    wont know till you get it apart and see how bad the damage is. could have to just replace valves, or the whole head could be shot. also the piston could be fucked. gotta take it to a shop and pay.
