I bought a 90 Escort 4 door hatchback new in March 1990 and it was a good car until 96 when it overheated once. After that, it would crack the head and blow the head gasket. I fixed it 3 times, but it kept doing it. I finally gave up and parked it in the back yard. The only thing I can think of that may have been causing the problem is possibly a warped block deck. Has anybody else had this problem?
