comment 1994 Ford Escort won't start
I tested cylinder pressure after determining that fuel was making it to the cylinders. I found that the rightmost two cylinders had 0-30 psi while the third from the right had 150 psi so this probably means a warped head or blown head gasket. I have not taken it off so I do not know the full damage but I will update when I do. Thanks for your help and suggestions!

@MarkJohnson it is a 1.9L. Yes, broken valve seat is why the head was replaced the first time (and was replaced with a re-engineered head to hopefully prevent that from happening again). Have not noticed white exhaust from coolant, perhaps it leaks out only while being driven?
