Question about 1990 Ford F150
I have black/clear fluid pouring out the tail accompanied by white smoke until the engine is warmed up. Replaced plugs, wires, cap and rotor and no change. There is a 1" vacuum hose on top o' the passenger side wheel well that goes to nothing and leads out from a large (about 8" long X 4" diameter) canister. Nothing seems to change when i plug it. idle bounces between 500 and 1000 rpm constantly. Is this the timing or egr valve or what? Can someone please help? I know next to nothing but want to learn.
You could do a compression test witch would require you to pull the spark plugs or you chould pull the head.

You have either a cracked head or a blown head gasket letting water seapdown into the cylinder, when it is cold it does it worse becaues the metal is cold , when it warms up the metal expands and seals it off some what and it is not so noticeable.
