1994 Ford Escort Wagon. Just fixed the water pump, timing and oil change a few weeks ago. Just recently had to replace the water outlet gasket and the freeze plug because the coolant/water was leaking all out. I drove at least 10 miles and it ran pretty good. Right after that, it ran hot, coolant started bubbling from the coolant reservoir tank and the car had shut down. Now, there's water mixed with the oil and white smoke coming out the tailpipe. The car still starts. I wanted to know, do I need to replace the head gasket? Can I change the oil and filter and add engine restorer to the engine without having to replace the head gasket?
Turn temperature to red and defrost and still get no warm or hot air

Why does the coolant light come on
Cars idle, was running rough, overheating, lost antifreeze,stalling, motor would shut down quietly at traffic lights and I had to put it in neutral & press on the accelerater, preventing stalling?

While driving, no indication of overheating, & still has antifreeze, & oil in motor. Ty for your help?



i recently bought a 2000 ford escort zx2 with an automatic transmission i got it cheap cause the transmission was slipping.I changed the filter, did a fluid change, replaced the VSS and did alot of reading and no changes the slipping remained constant. Today I unplugged connector right below the neutral saftey switch its an orange connector with 8 pin-in slots. With it unplugged it shifts and before it would'nt move unless it started in low, then got up to speed then drive and finally over drive, but now it shifts great why? My car has 155000 miles.
I put in new battrie but not getting any power
It's leaking all the way out within minutes of filling it up. I just replaced pump and it doesn't look like it's leaking from any of the hoses right around the resevoir and front of the pump but it's was dripping heavily down the heat shield. What could be causing this?
