The car was knocking and the idle was real ruff. There was a loss of power as well. I thought it was the timing belt and was not, so I'm going to check the head gasket. What are the torque sequences?
How do I remove and reinstall a 1.9L head gasket on a 1995 Ford Escort. on 1994 Ford Escort
If your checking for an engine noise i wouldnt worry about the head gasket I would drop the oil pan to check rod bearings
