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.

Smoke comes out of the tailpipe when first


60,000 miles or so depending on the engine but if its blue smoke which it means its oil burning its sounds like valve guide seals.

How much oil will a ford escort van 1.8 diesel


if you have the owners manual-look in the index for oil capacity, or fluid capacities. that should inform you of the oil type and capacity (if you change the filter as well, it will prob. take another half-quart or so. the manual should inform you.

Ford escort 1.8 diesel van 1994 just stoped whiles driving


You are on the right track. 99% sure it is a fuel supply problem. I suspect the lift pump is a likly candiddate or an obstruction inside of the fuel tank. Chack also on the vacuum side of the pump for any loose hoses that could result in an air leak so the lift pump will draw air instsead of fuel

FORD ESCORT DIESEL VAN W/00 How difficult is it to replace a headlamp? Can I do it myself? Anyone got any advice. I think I'll get the Haynes manual (4081) but advice from anyone who's done the actual job...


DO YOU MEAN THE ACTUAL HEADLAMP OR JUST THE BULB?
TO REMOVE THE ACTUAL HEADLAMP THERE ARE JUST TWO SCREWS AT THE TOP, REMOVE THESE, UNPLUG BOTH PLUGS, AND THE WHOLE UNIT WILL COME OUT.
TO REMOVE THE BULB, TAKE OFF THE COVER AT THE BACK, UNDO THE CLIP, AND THE BULB IS OUT, WHEN REPLACING THE NEW BULB DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS BIT OF THE BULB.
BOTH JOBS ARE EXTREMELY EASY TO DO
