Question about Ford Escort
I will try to answer some of your questions, we do not have many vehicles like yours in this area. If you had white smoke out the tailpipe, that was steam. At least a head gasket is leaking, if not the engine block. You can have the Radiator pressure tested and the test should indicate a leak. There are products which are suppose to seal small leaks internally. Your Diesel has a higher compression ratio than a gas engine, therefore it will be more difficult to seal.
If the smoke was Black or Blue, this is a sign of the Diesel fuel getting past the piston rings. If your Fuelpump Regulator is bad inside the Fuelpump, you will have flooding problems or extreme RPM and a runaway motor. This sounds like your problem. The unused fuel is suppose to return to the fueltank. The valving inside the Regulator or Fuelpump has failed and you can not control RPM. All the fuel is going into the motor.
You need someone to disassemble the components and inspect them for cracks and replace bad parts.
