Your car has the M20B25 engine which I think is a fine engine but others say it is too underpowered.

Your particular engine is very easy to work on and will run a very long time with the proper maintenance.
First think this:
Has the timing belt been changed, any records?
How about the waterpump?
When was its last oil change?
When was the last cooling system service?
Anything unusual about the fluids?

Answer all of these questions, then take a look at this:
