Question about 1995 Ford F250

1 Answer

Engine idles OK and normal, but when accelerate, sounds muffled and has no power. Thought I may have a head gasket problem due to seeing some white smoke. Exhaust smells foul.

    does the exhaust seem steamy and smell like coolant?

The compression is the same for all cylinders(150), but when I turned motor over, water came out of #1 cylinder only. Any idea?


Sounds like a head gasket leaking water in from the cooling system. Does it run OK? Any water in the oil on the dipstick and a mayonnaise type film on the oil filler cap?

91 Explorer 6cyl XLT standard is super hard to start, the engine sounds muffled when starting and while running, quickly overheated once it was running, looses power when pressing accelerator.


Could be a clogged catalytic converter. It could also be a bad head gasket allowing some coolant to enter the cylinders. Check for milky grey oil.

I have Ecort 1.8 td from 2000 Y of production, and have white smoke on pipetail and idles very roughly, engine coolent is OK, oil level is OK, what can it be the problem?.


White smoke and running roughly would normally point to a head gasket problem.

Keep an eye on your engine coolant I'd imagine it will start to disappear.

Even though coolant level is OK, it does not rule out a blown head gasket-has the engine recently been overheated? You should get engine compression checked, to see if you have low compression in 2 adjacent cylinders, to rule out the possibility. White smoke and very rough engine performance point to a blown head gasket, however.

Not accelerating and letting white smoke out exhaust


it sounds like the engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers most likely due to a leaky head gasket or a cracked cylinder head and will cause loose of power in acceleration

White smoke coming from exhaust when accelerating


This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.
