Question about 1998 Ford Escort
If it's a stuck lifter, you can try a cup of transmission fluid in the crankcase, or there are many additives at any parts store. If it's a rod that's going... sorry. Nothing you can do. Replace the engine. If it's coming from the top of the engine, it's likely a stuck lifter, and you may be able to loosen it with the additive. If not, you may need to replace the lifters, which isn't death, but if you can't do it yourself, can be pricey. Unfortunately, if it's the crank it's too late.
