A bent conrod will cause low compression in a cylinder, but not white smoke. White smoke is an indication of water being sucked into the cylinder, ergo a leaking headgasket. If you haven't done any performance modifications to your car, it's unlikely you would have bent a conrod unless your timing belt broke or one of the cylinders got flooded. The latter is ...

On the side of the car, you can see the name Freeman Racing Associates. This refers to Bill Freeman's team. Freeman is most notable for the team he created with acting legend Paul Newman. Freeman was also a driver himself. The team was called Newman Freeman Racing. Here is their team logo: As far as the car ... I'm thinking it was probably a Ford, ...

The book time for your head gasket renewal is 9.8 hrs. An average sort of hourly rate would be around £95+ an hour(UK). Parts would come to around £150. On these pretty average figures you are looking at something like £1300 with the tax(VAT). White smoke on a diesel engine is symptomatic of the cylinder/cylinders not burning the fuel properly. This could be ...

First... find another garage. White smoke and low compression are NOT symptoms of a bent connecting rod. Also, you CANNOT inspect the connecting rods by removing the head - they're on the opposite (bottom) ends of the pistons. White smoke and low compression are both symptoms of a blown head gasket. That's very classic. It doesn't sound like it's very bad, ...

After compression checking and pulling off the valve covers it was obvious there was no traumatic damage. Rebuilding the carb helped (because after we solved it we had a huge surge in horsepower) but didn't solve the problem. It was only after we had called a local machine shop and described the problem just like above where they had mentioned "are the gears ...

Also you need to make sure your belts are tight. A loose belt can cause the alternator to not charge properly.

From your description of your problems, it points to a continuing problem with a parasitic drain. Whilst not an every day event, sometimes a new alternator can be defective. Your alternator may have been damaged in transit or may not be an incorrect replacement for your vehicle. The electrical system needs to be checked out again, and a scan for any ...

Short circuit could happen because of broken shift solenoid. Could also be an electrically error in EPC.

Your AirCon compressor comes in two halves. There is the pulley/clutch half, and the pumping element half. With the AirCon off the pulley and clutch arrangement are simply rotated by the serpentine belt, and the pumping element remains stationary. When you turn the AirCon on, the clutch is engaged and both elements turn together to pressurise the system. The ...

Maybe is something wrong with your a/c pump or in the circle, so it's stiff. But at that way you should hear a pretty hard beat or squeak if A/C turns on, because the magnetic clutch of A/C is overloaded. The second reason could the short circuit, so I would check some cable. I think this is more an electrically problem.

Do you have an exterior temperature sensor that gives a reading inside the car? I have a SAAB 93 that had a faulty exterior temperature sensor that the HVAC computer system used to properly run. During the warm summer months the sensor was telling my car that is was below freezing outside and it wouldn't let the AC system come, but every now and then the ...

You need to have a scan on your AirCon system to check it out for any control faults and operation. A check on the blend door must be done as they do fail and continue to let in warm/hot air during AirCon operation. A system recharge may/will be necessary to ensure that it is fully charged. During the recharge pressures should be noted, and ensure that the ...

The part you are pointing to is the air intake for your engine. This pipe should be coming from the intercooler. Since your engine is a turbo diesel, this would be directly related to why your engine is smoking (assuming you mean it's smoking out the tail pipe). What is happening is if there is a crack in this pipe, your engine is not receiving all of the ...
