For a quick quote look up a price just for the head itself. i think youll find its pretty pricy even with out labor and if v-6 double it.(for ballpark price call dealer for price on the parts. then figure 8-10 hrs labor.

Is the 2001 Ford Escort an interference engine?


Yes the single and double overhead cam engines are both interference engines.
So you have a 50/50 chance the valves are damaged if the belt broke while the engine was running.
Most people replace the belt then check compression before putting the engine front back together.

My 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS engine had a hole punched out of the engine block and I need to know what had caused that to happen and there was no warning at all when it happened, although I do need a new...


Your mechanic can't tell you what happened? Very strange. I would suspect that the engine threw a rod to knock a hole in the block. Your mechanic should at a minimum be able to connect to the PCM and retrieve the freeze frame data to see if your vehicle experienced a fatal drop in oil pressure, etc. Additionally I've never experienced a service contract provider refuse simply outright refuse to pay to have the vehicle fixed myself. I have had vehicles come in where the previous "mechanic" simply didn't have the knowledge to diagnose the issue.

It's hard to say what happened without more information. Detailed information - what were you doing when it happened? How had the vehicle been driven prior to the incident? When was the last oil change?

2003 Mitsibushis Eclipse GS won't start?


If the timing belt is broken, chances are you would hear the pistons banging into the open valves as the engine turned over (broken timing belt means cam is not turning, and some valves will be open.).

Please reply what led up to the engine not starting, from the last time that the engine ran.

My 1999 Eclipse gs engine light came on, DTC P1390.


P1390 - Timing belt skipped one tooth or more.


the engine is an interference engine so if the timing belt skipped, it should be fixed before starting the engine again. otherwise you run the risk of bend/break valves from piston to valve contact
