If it's not leaking its burning it and the noise could be a lifter

SOURCE: 1989 Dodge Raider timing chain worn out

I doubt it is the timing chain. More than likely it is the valves themselves, the seats wear out, and the lifters wear, so eventually the lifters don't pump up as full as they should, so it causes a gap between it and the valve, so it slaps the valve, also the seats wear, so the valve is kinda loose, so that causes a gap between it and the rocker shaft, so you get another slap. If the chain wore out enough to be hitting the block or front cover, you would be having timing issues because it would have to be pretty loose. You may also have a failing oil pump, so it is not suppling the right pressure, which is why you hear it at idle, because under load the pressure goes up and as I said it pumps up the lifter. This guy is a joke if he told you just to drive it till it blows, which would cause significant damage, Then you have to buy a what? use motor for $600 that is no better off than what you got? Then pay someone like this idiot $500 to install it? Right now you could probably rebuild the engine for about $600, and have a brand new fresh motor for your truck. The chain is not too difficult, you can do it in the car, but would be much easier out of it. The head doesn't have to be removed to do it, but you do have to take off the timing cover, which can be a pain, and possibly the water pump, all the engine pulleys, alternator, etc. So thats why I suggested pulling the motor. And, when it is pulled, it would be a great time to freshin it up with new pistons, rings, bearings, have the block done and rebuild the head.

SOURCE: HOW TO REPLACE A STARER IN 1987 DODGE RAIDER

I am assuming that it is the 2.6L (G54B) engine. I am not sure if the 6-cylinder was available in 87. If it is the 4-cylinder engine the starter will be on the drivers side down near the side-bottom of the engine. It looks like a silver tube with usually a black center. All you have to do is unplug the electrical from it (i think it is just one connection) and then unbolt it. Getting to the bolts can be a pain so you will just have to find a way that you can get a wrench in to it. Once you take out a couple of bolts (can't remember if it is 2 or 3) you can just pull it out and pop in a new one.
