Pull the valve cover and pry the valves dont but do not force. you can use some WD40 and spray and try to get it loose
and if it doesnt come loose your that much closer to removing the head

Timing belt broke at hiway speed Is the motor shot ? 1998 Ford Escort


Maybe not. Not all engine have an interference problem. Many wil be fine after the belt is replaced and the valve train is retimed. Was there a lot of noise? If the engine just stopped without much fanfare you are Ok. Check with your mechanic or dealer to be specific.

You have a short circiut in the wiring or one of the bulbs. It flashes on purpose to allow you to get off the road without the lights totally going off. Design intent.

Replace the Spark Plug wires, they burn through and short to the valve cover/cylinder head causing a miss under load, very common concern with this Mazda engine that was used in your Escort GT. Buy the best wire set you can find, or the problem will re-occur very quickly. Auto-lite makes a good set at a good price, avail at most chain parts stores like Kragen, Auto Zone etc.
