I'm surprised that we had to wait until the 4th reply, before somebody mentioned timing and balance belts!

If you have no records as to when they were last changed, change them now!!!!

Do a search, you'll find about a bazillion posts about timing belts. To sum them all up: timing belts are a weak point on these cars. They need a lot more attention than any other car. People get very nervous about timing belts, because when they fail, they cause a lot of expensive damage.
