May have a head gasket or a warped head, dunno. A while back I thought I had unburned fuel after the turbo and it seems more likely to be coolant? It started and run just ok but lots of smoke(maby steam) came for a few minutes and a service light was on. Fine. next day no issues at all, still kind of lazy for power though. 3 rd day run perfect-except power maby 75%ish. Next morning it will not turn over at all. Not batteries as the lights are good. Seems to be hydraulically locked? Would coolant leak into cyl and fill it so it cant compress? thirtyoneseventysucks on a 75c.
