Sounds like you have a broken timeing belt,there may be head damage all so,have the engine pressure checked to rule out head damage before replacing the belt.

The 2.3 engine is not an interference engine. Belt is likely broken.

The Motorweek article is interesting, but you do not need to worry cause your 2.3 is a SOHC and not a DOHC engine.
