HEAD GASKET

1986 Ford Ranger

Engine Performance problem
1986 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 132000 miles

i have an 86 ranger but it has a 90 model mustang 2.3 engine which had a blown head gasket when the guy I bought the truck from put it in now its compression is very low on the two middle cylenders and its lost alot of power to where you cant hardly drive it the guy told me it sounded like it blew the gasket again what do you think and if so how do I keep it from happening again?

Hi sleepyfowler and TY for the donation

2 cylinders low on compression sounds like a blown headgasket BTDT -also have the head miked out for warpage if need be have it resurface
