My buddy has a 1994 ford escort with a 1.9 liter/manual trans. We just put a used engine with 90,000 miles on it 10 months ago. It ran great, and is still running great, it starts easy and idles fine. All of a sudden it starts ticking loud. We pulled the valve cover off and it does sound like it is in the top of the motor but I can't be for sure. He has'nt driven it since. Should I check for a collapsed lifter, broke valve or somthing more simple. Another bit of info, the motor we put in it had been sitting in a junkyard for a while. Please help! Thanks
have the same problem?
