Im not sure what the problem is but I know there is a problem in the head :( I have a knock or tick in the valve system. Slight hesitation in acceleration-fuel side. Anybody have a guess?

Is it 3 or 4 valves per cyl on 1.9L

same

that makes it 2 valves per cyl. and 2 lifters per cyl.....the ticking in your car may be normal unless the ticking is way too loud the you may have a valvetrain problem...also check all pullies for they have the tendency of making noise too(not ticking but a knocking ish sound)....hope this helps..

As kikoy said, the 1.9 SOHC has only 2 valves per cylinder, 1 intake, 1 exhaust.

My first advice would be to check your oil, if it's low the ticking will continue, put a quart or however low you are in, wait a moment and then listen.

If you have a head problem it'll be quite a bit cheaper to replace the valves/retainers/lifters than it would be with a GT motor. :)

ohc does have lifters, however, they dont have rods. funny lil story that goes with my escort... bought it for $150, just needed a clutch is all i'm told.. uh huh.. yeah right.. valve ticking, not the oil. pull the cover, one of the lifters will not come out.. cant be good. after three days of trying to figure out a way to get this thing out we ended up welding a nut to the top of the lifter and using one of them slide hammers and ripped the thing out, leaving gouges comin up the walls... after many hours of 4 minds pondering on how this happened we came to the conclusion that the lifter went flat, making it bounce on the cam. after many miles of being flat the roller under it broke in half and upon the break, shoved the body of the lifter up far enough to break the retaining spring in the middle. because the previous owner never looked into the CLAK CLAK CLAK CLAK CLAK that the car made for quite a while aparently, the bottom of the lifter mushroomed out and the cam now has a u shaped high surface on the second cylinder. dropped in 8 new lifters, new retaining springs, put it all back together and gave it a good ole FUCK IT and has been working just fine for the past 6000 miles i've been driving it.. that is, except for the problems listed in my other posts.. (fyi to those that read my others - it's been running fine for the first 5000 and now the random miss that goes away after it warms up)

i'm done blabbering. carry on, Forum

yeah check your oil level and see if low and add as necessary....anyway if too much noise persist better to have it checked by a more inclined person and see if the repairs are related to your cars prob....also escorts are a bit hesitant to accelerate when the weater is a bit warm(less dense air)...and yeah its 2/cyl or 2/piston on the valves...hope this helps.....(thanks james for the referral...lolz....)

"FORD" stands for "FIRST ON RACE DAY" at least they won a whole lot for me in my wild and reckless youth.

OHC just means the cams are in the head.. Usually, a DOHC head usually has no lifters, just buckets on top of the valve stems that the cam rides directly on. A SOHC engine uses rocker arms because a single cam cannot ride over two rows of valves.

The rocker arms (lifters) are set diagonally to the cam in the CVH motor (Ford 1.9L).. a very peculiar design.

Does anyone make a different ratio rocker arm for the 1.9L. I mean I can go from stock 1.5's to 1.6 to 1 or even 1.7 to 1 in my small block chevy and get more horspower just by giving the engine more duration off the cam. I guess I shall research that.
Might be worth some HP.
