Think you. I hope it does. The engine is miss firing on cylinders 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The truck has actually no power and also is dranking gas like its going out of style. If this doesn"t work I"m going to have a compression test done. Then I"ve gotta find wbelow I"m shedding coolant. Its not leaking under the truck and also its not in my floorboard, yet I"m dumping 2 gallons every 4 days right into the radiator.
Coolant leaking via no indicators huh. You may want to check out your oil level. Is it milky looking? Over filled? I believe you might have actually a blown head gasket or manifold gasket. This will let coolant into the burning chambers and cause misfireing. It will certainly also cause the coolant to leak without a noticeable sign (drips, wet spots.). Sounds like you need to go ahead and get it pressure tested. May also be a cracked head, but this will typically cause smoke too. Thanks for making use of historicsweetsballroom.com. Com!
Ok, now you"re just scaring me. LolBut I"ve been reasoning I can have a blown head gasket for awhile. Think you aacquire
