Question Something wrong with my damn motor...

Hey guys, I have a problem. Ok, ok, I have more than one.

I just bought a 1996 Eagle Talon ESi off my cousins friend for $450, the trunk doesent stay up, and the speedometer doesent light up at night, but that doesent matter to me.

What worries me is that whenever i turn my engine on, it will make a noise kind of like a clank clank clank clank. My brother says its the valves, my auto-mechanic teacher says its the cam & valve timing, and my cousin thinks its something to do with the crank.

I dont know which one it is, and this spring break Im planning to pull my motor out and check it out. Can you guys give me some ideas/suggestions what it is? I would really appreciate it.

My other problem is the front part of my frame, wher my bumper is, is knocked about 4-5 inches to the right. I was thinking about tying one end of the Talon to a tree and get my brothers van and pull the frame back to how its supposed to be. Do you guys think thats a good idea?

Please respond ASAP as spring break is next week.
