Seems a lot of these cars have cylinder liner issues? Most info I have found says to do a pressure test. (With spark plugs removed) Let it sit for several hours. Then check each cylinder for coolant in it. They say most likely its the inner ones that typically have the liner issues.(2,4,3 & 5). Hope this helps.
