Texan Focus Fanatics! I Need Y'all!

Long story short, my motor has a knock :( I don't have a whole lot of experience working on this car, and I really would like a set of knowledgeable hands on the scene to help out. I at least want to get the crank out and have it inspected, to see if it can be re-used.

Any help is appreciated! If you've got some time to spare, please leave your number and I promise I'll call you.

To get the crank out would involve completely pulling the motor. It's the only way to get to it. Good luck I hope you get it sorted out.

I'd really like to fix it, when it was working it was an awesome car. If I can't get help fixing it though I might just have to sell her as is. Shoot me an offer Chris and we'll talk.
