Do you have any history on the car, such as records, receipts, etc? If not, I would suggest adjusting the valves soon, or having them adjusted by your trusted tech. He can also check the timing chain stretch at that time. I would also change the motor oil and filter, and all other fluids (including brake fluid) and filters straight away, and start a new history. These engines are capable of very high mileage if well taken care of.
