After a valve seat broke and ruined a piston and buggered up the head I was devastated.
The head was redone by a local machine shop and I put in the piston and did all the removel and replacement of components.
I also installed a new timing belt and many other items anyway the car will start sometimes and the engine heats up and after it is shut down it doesn't start again until the next day it's like something gets hot and needs to cool down before the car will start again. Any thoughts?

I have checked the compression and although it's low all 4 cylinders are measuring the same 120 psi.
the injectors have been cleaned as has the idle valve, Egr valve. the MAF sensor and I installed a new fuel pressure sensor and fuel filter from a local Ford dealer and it was very expensive.

This forum is difficult for me to use.
I have no idea if anyone is reading my information or the correct way to find a solution to my problems.

I'll try to explain the terms that seem confusing.

When you start a new "thread", you enter a title and "post" your initial comment/question that you would like to converse about.

Each subsequent reply to that thread is a new "post" that shows up in it's numbered reply box along with the info. of the person making that post.

The conversation started by your initial post creating the thread continues indefinitely as replies and responses are made, hopefully it stays on topic well enough to answer the original question as well as possible. Moderators sometimes comment or move/delete posts if it goes off track or something inappropriate is posted.

If you click on the "quote" button in a post, the text from that is included in quotes to start off your reply in an "advanced" reply format that gives you more options. You can remove parts of the quote to concentrate on a particular sentence you want to show, in order to make it obvious just what your reply is referring to. As long as you do not delete the [QUOTE] marks starting and ending the quote, it will appear in a quote box in your reply.

Multi quote is used to put multiple quotes in a reply you want to make. Click on multi quote in each post you want included in your reply, when you click on quote for the last one you want included ALL of them will appear in a reply box where you can add your comments to them.

You used the quote function perfectly earlier here to show the post that you were replying to.

When reading this on a computer, you can look to the right side of the listing for your thread title and see the number of "looks" the thread has gotten. That lets you know it is being read, even if the people have no comments to add that will help.

You initially made two duplicate threads in other sections from this. I merged them and moved it to this section where it would fit best and be most likely to get useful replies. The second duplicate starting post was then deleted to make the thread simpler to follow.

Duplicate threads are generally a bad idea, as they start separate conversations on the same topic that can be difficult to follow.

Have you been able to drive the car at all? Any codes/CEL?

You mention "start sometimes", could you mention more about how you get it started or what it does when not starting?

When you say "engine heats up" are you referring to normal operating temp. or does it get too high on the gauge?
