I have a 1998 Taurus and I have no heat and low compression on #1 cylinder what could be wrong
I have a 1998 Taurus and I have no heat and low compression on #1 cylinder. My car misfires when it is at an idle. Does any one know what could be wrong?
Hello, You could have a number of problems in the car, or a combination of more than one. Your bad heat could be caused by a thermostat problem, and the compression can be caused by oil not getting to the cylinders (i.e. low oil). I would recommend bringing the car to a mechanic to have it checked out. Best of luck! CarGrrl
Yes it could be many things, it sounds a lot like a blown head gasket or a crack in the block or piston. Is there water in the oil? It will look milky on the dipstick. Is there oil in the water? You will be able to see droplets in the water if you take off the radiator cap(after the engine is cool of course). It could be cracked rings on the piston.
