A compression tester is not that expensive (under $50)
You take out the spark plug (preferably all of the spark plugs at the same time, make sure to mark which wire goes to what cylinder), screw the tester in, and turn the motor over a few times with the key (you do not want to start the motor, just crank it over a few times).
Write down the results of the test.
Repeat the procedure for each of the 4 cylinders.
Once you have the results, compare them to factory specifications (they should be at least 135 to 165 lbs each).

The head gasket is between the cylinder block, and the head of the motor.

Replacing the head gasket is a fairly major job. You have to tear down most of the motor. If you have never done major motor work, it is probably best left to a shop to do the job.
I can't say exactly what it would cost, but it is not going to be inexpensive.

And this is still hoping that it is just the gasket, and not a major break in the head or the block.
If the head or the block is cracked, you will be looking at replacing the motor.
But from everything you mentioned in the original question, this is a big job.

Why are you asking me to answer questions that 7 years old???


No doubt.. You just have to watch the dates of the questions. I went threw one time and just answered a bunch of them. My answers were like, Too old, sold it, junked already.. My guess is someone tagged you for it.. Been there..

Dont bother it wont get answered


Most questions get answered. The ones that don't are either badly written, have no information or the unpaid helpers genuinely don't know the answer. If you give a well worded question with sufficient information you are 95% certain to get an answer.

Many times we get the question "I need a manual", or "what is the matter with it", or "why won't it start". How do you expect us to answer questions like that?

You posted to the category 'oil change kit' for what looks like an ATV or Trike. Very specialised and with electronic fuel injection (EFI) Check the wires on the sensors and all the connectors to the engine. I think you have one part of the harness disconnected or not properly connected.

If that doesn't work take it to someone that knows what they are doing and they can finish the job you started ??

Don't get this site I've answered questions and don't see any activity or points


Glad to have another future expert on the line. When you answer, for maximum points and maximum interaction, use the ALL UNANSWERED option. That way you are not answering questions that are already answered. Also, if you try to work under an area of expertise, you will find that many of the questions are relatively old. You can see at the bottom of the question the date it was posted. Some of the ones you've answered are almost three years old. Those folks no doubt have moved on. That doesn't mean that answering the question isn't needed; someone else may see it and it will help them. If you are looking for fast points though, skip the categories and just skim down the ALL UNANSWERED list. These are posted most recent first, and then backward. They are worth the most points. You'll find that attaching pictures, links, and videos get you extra points. Have fun and experiment a bit.

How come so many people seeking answers dont post enough information in their original post? For crying out loud..


speaking from the point of view of one of the mind readers out here , id have to agree with you , it does make it a challenge to figure out just what there talking about , maybe fix-ya needs to develop a form to fill out for folks to be able to post any question , this would go miles towards getting better answers ( make, model #, year purchased, etc .) basic stuff like that

How long does it take to get answers to questions?


That depends on the question. Bear in mind that FixYa is a worldwide community of volunteers. No one is answering questions on a fixed schedule, and no one is getting paid to answer questions. The middle of the day could be the middle of the night for someone who knows the answer to your question. Answers also tend to come slower on the weekend.

Also, some questions simply don't get answered.

Both codes are for the cam sensor. The sensor would need to be checked.

Access panel for the fuel pump on a 1993 ford probe


the 93+ probe's (2nd generation) DO NOT have an access panel under the seats, or anywhere. only the 89-92 probe's did (1st generation) To gain access to the fuel pump, you have to drop the gas tank. or get handy with a cutter, and hope you dont blow yourself up.
