95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??

Just bought a 95 escort lx for $700 drove it home got out to check everything and there was antifreeze leaking from underneath car near passenger door then notice passenger floor was wet also noties some smoke/steam smelling of antifreeze coming out of heat vents.

also when driving the car when i accelerate the car shakes alot but if i let go of the gas it will roll smoothly till i accelerate again. there is a exhaust problem not sure if it contributes to any of this the center pipe rusted off right before the muffler in back of car.

so wondering what cause the white smoke from vents (theres no smoke comin under hood) why the antifreeze leak in odd place and why car shakes on acceleration any help would be great.

The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

1995 Ford Escort LX Wagon 1.9 Liter. 173K Loud Vibration


Is the engine running on all four cylinders, no missfire? If so, check the engine and transmission mounts, there are four, one at the top right hand side, one at the top of transmission on the left hand side, and one on front of transmission bell housing, and one in the rear transmission bell housing, any of them that are bad can cause this vibration. Hope this helps, let me know.

93 Escort. Burning and smoking oil.


it sounds more like crank case is not venting properly. check your PVC and make sure your not cloged.,

Your engine needs air to be able to move around so it doesnt turn into a pump. if you get your PVC clogged oil can start either burning or leaking past rings or spitting out of your gaskets.

try that first,
otherwsie i would have to asume you have a tired engine.

I jsut bought this 93 ford escort lx station wagon


If this is a manual transmission the clutch has burned out, it may need to be replaced, if you do not do your own mechanic work I would suggest that you take it to a good local repair shop and have them check it out. If this is an automatic I would still suggest the same, but the actual problem could be more complex. Hope this helps, let me know.
