Hello Ford enthusiasts!


There is a Ford Escort Station that is quite special to me, due to it being the car of my childhood, while also being the 1st car I EVER drove.


It very recently got its engine totaled. Rotten head gaskets, along some other rotten components, caused the temperature to rise incredibly, leading to a stuck engine.


The car belongs to my uncle, who will store the car for me, until I can take ownership of the car.


The engine block is pretty much dead, no point in repairing it, so I am thinking about doing an engine swap, or simply buy the same engine, the 1.8 TD Endurade. 


I really need some help, what should I do? Since money is kind of tight, I do have a place where I can work on the car, along a group of mechanic friends.


Also, I live in Portugal, it might be an important information, or not.


Thank you,

Either get another engine the same (easy), get a complete petrol engine car (Zetec 1.8) and swap EVERYTHING; fuel tank, wiring, ECU, etc. (medium) or get a black top 2.0 Zetec and all the bits needed to make it work in your Escort (hard). Maybe in Portugal you are not permitted to make such changes?
