are you sure? We had an '89 Acclaim with that engine at one point and I'm pretty sure the timing belt broke and it needed a valve job.....
edit: well according to wiki it's non interference, but I'd bet money that ours needed a valve job after the belt snapped.

All most all 2.5L's have some degree of rod noise. Every single one I have ever delt with was noisy. Just make sure it has oil, and keep the RPM's down. Timing belts are common at every AutoZone in the hemisphere.

I was hoping that noise was lifter tick...guess not? Keep the RPMs down below what?
