About a month ago the wife and I were taking the escort out of town about an hour and a half away. All highway driving. Car ran and drove without a hic-up all the way up to the very moment I exited off the highway. Light was red came to a complete stop and waited for the light to change. car still sounds fine at this point. Light turns green and bam instant loss of power. Luckily the car still ran well enough to drop it off at a friends house in the town we were visiting. Finally got around to messing with it and I have lost all compression in cyl 2 & 3. When running the compression test I can hear the Air from the cyl I'm testing go into the adjacent cyl. i.e 2 leaks into 3 when 2 is being tested and likewise the other way around. So looks like the head is coming off to see what kind of damage I'm into.
