For my 1995LX the Mahle head gasket >> Felpro.So I've got the head all reconditioned and reassembled now just waiting on the gasket set I need. So in the meantime I'm fixing some other things that need repair, like the previous owners cut a bunch of lines..
That being said, where does the PCV line go to? I've read a couple things that says it goes around to the intake said but doesnt clearly say where it hooks up and I dont see any obvious places... and since i dont have the original in its entirety...
For my 1995LX, the Mahle gasket only fits a 1991-1996 Escort/Tracer with a 1.9L engine. For the Felpro gasket, it "fits" like every Escort ever made, plus some unrelated non-Ford. Compromises were made in the Felpro to make it "work", so it doesn't fit as good, meaning on the head gasket it doesn't separate the cylinders from some of the oil and coolant passages as good as the Mahle gasket does.That's really great to know, as I have been sitting here debating on which one of those two I wanted to get
a lot of people put the cam seal in the wrong direction. I have even had cars i fixed which had two cam seals put in place the cam seal is supposed to have the flat side facing out for the vct camWell new o rings and cam seal, same results.
It's most definitely coming from behind the exhaust sprocket... anyone have any idea on what I may have missed?
the position of the "sprocket" is not important but the tab in the hole is otherwise the vct cam gear wont go on without bending it.Yes, I have the tab on the sprocket in the hole. And it was lined up at the 12 o'clock position.
i know what a zetec looks like and disassembly is not required for what i want to see. It is not my car and my car is not leaking so all I can offer you at this point is good luck and hope you figure it outWell pictures of what I suspect to be leaking would require disassembly. I kinda just figured anyobe that knows would know what a 2.0 zetec looks like
