The cylinder head has to be removed and the head gasket replaced. This is not an easy job for the do it your selfer. There are several special tools required and when the engine is apart, there are several areas that have to be checked for exact tolerances and torque settings, otherwise the new head gasket will blow. I would suggest you have a mechanic do the work.

My 1998 Escort had one broken exhaust bolt after the CAT and leaks which causes the PO133. Cut off bolts and replaced gasket and bolts. All is good
