I would seriously consider this engine to be on its last legs. Somewhat early for a 2.0, but we don't know the specifics of its maintenance history. If it was one of the garbage 2.3's I'd say it has lasted longer than most. Fortunately it is relatively easy to drop in a salvage yard motor into these, or just buy another car with a better motor and unload yours for the $500 that it is now worth.
