Sadly this is an interference engine, meaning that when the timing belt breaks, the piston tops most likely will have hit a few valves and bent or broken them.

I'd recommend not turning over the engine any more, and taking the cylinder head off. You will then be able to assess the damage by looking at its underside for bent or broken valves. The big hope is that no pistons are holed, in which case you just need an exchange or repaired cylinder head assembly, timing belt and head gasket etc.

If any pistons are holed or cracked, they will need replacing, and when you do that you need new rings, and possibly honing of the bores.It may also lead to replacement of the big end bearings. In some cars this can be done without removing the engine, I do not have experience with your model.

For this age car you have an economic decision to make before going ahead. All the best.

Best thing is, go to the parts house and get a book on your car.
YouTube videos will also help.
The book is a must

Tell me what code you are getting .
A barometric pressure sensor dose not work on its own .
You have the mass air flow sensor this is the first air sensor coming into the vehicle then you have an air temp sensor then what is called ECT engine coolant temp sensor .
The problem to me sounds like the MAP sensor manifold absolute pressure .You loss this the vehicle is not going to run to good.
If it wore the mass air flow it would cost the most the map is far less in price still not cheap the barometric sensor it likely a symptom of the real problem .
Check the gas flow in side the engine like EGR and EVAP systems to a vacuum thing .

It should be located on the return side of your fuel rail , some of the Mitsubishi regulators are simple clip or three small screws to remove and replace others you have to replace the entire fuel rail depending on where it was assembled.

On either side of the headlight wiring assembly, in the engine compartment, you will find 2 small tabs. They are located to the sides and towards the bulb of the plastic assembly. Press these 2 tabs in while pulling the wire assembly out. Remove the rubber gasket and unhook the wire spring holding the bulb in place. The bulb come right out. The bulbs are halogen so do not handle the new bulb by the glass.

Blown head gasket letting compression into the cooling system.

Usually means the head gasket is leaking pressure into the cooling system, or the radiator cap is faulty.

time for new spark plug wires. When the wires insulation get older the resistance gets a lower ohm rating causing this to happen

I don't know about your Mitsubishi but generally windscreen trim is laid loose around the screen and theoretically can be reused. In practice the windscreen adhesive bead usually spreads and catches the trim in places effectively placing an element of doubt over the fact.
If a new trim isn't readily available or is prohibitively expensive, as long as care is taken to leave the visible part undamaged when cutting out the old screen or removing the trim the windscreen adhesive is so good it will bond even damaged trim and can be held securely.

One problem with reusing trim is when attempting to refit it will often be found to be too short. Contaminants from the atmosphere and UV exposure does tend to alter the properties of plastic. Once the trim has been removed shrinkage can sometimes be severe and rapid.

Windscreen water leaks should be none-existent with bonded screens but when windscreens must be replaced the fitters usually manage to scratch the paintwork in the screen recess and have no time or will to repaint. The adhesive bead rarely covers the exposed steel and as the trim is not designed to keep water out rust soon begins to attack and eventually destroys part of the windscreen bond and even sometimes eats through the steel into the windscreen pillar or roof.
