Hi, My wife's 1994 Escort wagon developed a coolant leak around the bottom radiator hose. The mechanic put a new radiator clamp on it and called it fixed, except it wasn't as a small puddle would form underneath the car after shutting it off. Anyway, my wife decided to drive across the state and on the way back, the car died and she could smell something burning. She said before it died it started to blow cold air, the temperature needle remained in the normal zone. Her dad insists that there was coolant in the radiator, but I could not see any when I looked today. So today I check the timing belt and marks, it was a little off, so I adjusted it. I then took a compression reading, #1 was 25 lbs, #2 was 2 lbs, 3 was 20 lbs, and number 4 was 30 lbs. Next, I pulled the head off, head gasket looked OK, on number two I could see melted metal around the valves but did not see any of the valve seats missing, on #3 there seemed to be coolant in the cylinder. When I looked at the exhaust valve stems, number one looked normal, but number 2, 3, and 4 had some type of buildup on them. Any idea what happened? If the engine is junk, any idea what a 94 Escort Wagon with no rust and 64K is worth? Color is that somewhat ugly light blue.
