95 ranger 4 cylinder not sure of the size...started
looseing compression and blowing smoke when
ya gun it to hard then while driving uphill
something gave in the engine and it lost all
compression and bogged out to a stop...not sure if
it's just top end...
Retire the car.... Many states will pay you to have the car removed from the road.... That's what I would do.
I think you may have to find out if the car has to be running.
Could have jumped cam timing, these are belt driven and if the belt has never been replaced then the chances are high that is the problem. The good news is that these are not interference engines so,if the belt did go bye bye then you just retire it but on a new belt and your off and running.
Blasted spell check, that is suppose to be retime it, not retire.
Thanks for the points. Hope that the belt is all that it is.
I'm with tennisshoes on this one.
