My 95 Ford escort 1.9L -- lost a valve seat -- got the head done -- put it
back together --
and it's still gotta rattle-- Now I'm thinking the crankshaft's broke.
The head costs me $500.00-- so you replacing the motor may sound good, BUT ask

(I think that there may be a cutoff/ or design change at 95 -- my 'Chiltons"
only goes up to 95 --so I'd be looking for a 96 or later)
