If it has not broken yet just replace it with new parts. If it has not broken yet you o.k.

The 2.0L engine has a timing belt. If the belt goes bad the engine will not start. If it slipped it would throw the timing off and cause back-firing. Also IF this is a interference engine then you have the possibility of having bent valves. I would have to investigate further to know if this is an interference engine.
