Retire the car.... Many states will pay you to have the car removed from the road.... That's what I would do.

I think you may have to find out if the car has to be running.

Could have jumped cam timing, these are belt driven and if the belt has never been replaced then the chances are high that is the problem. The good news is that these are not interference engines so,if the belt did go bye bye then you just retire it but on a new belt and your off and running.
