your best bet is to pull of the lower cover of the cam gears and see if anything fell in there. also while its off check the condition of your timing belt. it sucks to replace once it breaks, alot more hassle plus the chance of bending your valves.

It's relatively easy to remove the UPPER timing cover. Do that & have a good look around in there.

You need to remove the crankshaft pulley before you can get the lower cover off. That's a lot of work (unless you haveTHE TOOL.)

It might be a tensioner pulley or waterpump almost ready to seize up & shred the belt. I think you'll want to figure this out BEFORE that happens.

The basic stuff like water temperature & smoothness will be perfectly fine. Until the moment the belt breaks.
