Hello, I have a problem with my 2000my ford focus 2.0 esp.

recently noticed loss of coolant, then, after car stood for a few hours, it would missfire like hell on start up.
I bought some plugs and leads to replace just in case but on removing the plug from no3 cylinder, I can see water in the cylinder.
Guess ive found cause of missfire and coolant loss.

Anyone got any experience of this, am I looking at head gasket or possibly even worse???

Have something to contribute?

Sounds like a head gasket or even a cracked head to me :(

yeah ide say gasket the 2.0litre head doesnt like being skimmed in fact you shouldnt skim them at all as they will never be right its cheaper to buy a second hand engine and have it fitted
