Sure! You could be hearing from a broken spring, but it could also need a valve adjustment. If it runs ok, with all its usual power, I would take it to a shop and get their opinion on the valve train. Try putting a cheap stethoscope on your ears and pinpointing the noise if you're not sure where it's coming from. Thanks, hope you get it fixed. TT

Can I fit valve stem seals without taking the head off on 1600 sentra 1997

No you can't..
Fitting valve stem seals involves removing the valve springs. This means the valve has to be held in place by a valve spring compressor (bought from almost any spares outlet). The springs are compressed by placing one end of the compressor tool on the valve face and the other end over the spring cap, then squeezing the tool to compress the spring, then removing the split collets that hold the spring in place, removing the spring cap and spring, then eventually you have access to the stem seals.
The head has to be removed to accomplish all this.

94 cavalier top end knock

From your description of the knocking, mileage, and oil crusted on the intake valves you need an engine or a complete rebuild of the original.

Ticking ford focus

You need to be certain that the intake manifold is completely free of parts/remnants of the "old" valve seat that shattered. If you do not clean and blow out the intake manifold with compressed air before installing in on the new head, chunks of the old seat can and likely will find their way back into the combustion chamber.

Engine making a loud knocking sound

is the loud knocking sound coming from the top section, or the bottom section of the engine, if it's from the bottom, it could be a connecting rod, that is going bad, also if it's from the top of the engine, could be in the rocker arm assembley, this is where your valve spring, rockers, and retainers, and tips of valves are located, also have someone to see if the knock sensor is bad, normally , these are located not to far from the crankshaft pulley up from the bottom of engine.

Popping or knocking heard in front end when riding

Sounds like the Spring may be broken or there is another loose front end part such as a ball joint or a spring seat or something like that.

I had a broken spring on my 1990 Cadillac Deville and didn't know it until looking at it up under the wheel, and experiencing a popping or knocking sound when turning.

It could also be the bearing cap area problem.
