Escort Xr3I Help Please

09 April 2013 - 11:07 PM

I think iv blown the head gasket :(

 

well I fitted a strut brace and a open air filter on my ford escort xr3i its got a 4 into 1 manifold and exhaust I don't know if the car been tuned or what but it is very fast for a 1.6 i took the car for a drive when i was driving i shot off in 2 just as i changed gear in to 3 i herd like a little pop i dint think owt of it then i was driving normal for abit then all off a sudden the car started to smoke really bad it was that bad i got pulled by a unmarked ford focus st police car lol i had to have the car recovered by the AA.

 

when i start the car up cold it does not smoke soon as it gets warm its starts to smoke really bad its  white smoke what's coming out what could this be im guessing it could be the head gasket any help would be great thanks and its quite hard to start up aswell
