1998 Ford Escort Repair Question
The car pours out a thick white exhaust while seemingly running on only 3 of its 4 cylinders what can I do to fix this?
If the smoke is completely white, coolant is being burnt in the cylinders and the clean pistons indicates that. The # 1 cylinder is the one having the problem.
Was the cylinder head pressure tested?
Is the coolant level correct at the moment?
What are the compression readings?
