i probably shouldn't post this up but im puzzled and so are a few mechanics that i went and saw to see why my laser is running as if its on 3 cylinders.
i have a 1983 kb laser (soon to be driving a TX5 turbo
), it got reconditioned 2 yrs ago been running sweet as, but last week i was driving to uni and just about 5 mins from home, a water hose blew open from the bak of the manifold where the coolant feeds into the heater core. now this split was huge and once i was notified by a guy driving behind me i quikly pulled over and had a look. the split was almost the length of the hose and lukily i was near a servo so i pulled up and tried to fill the radiator but the water came out as fast as i poured it in. i then quikly went to my mechanics house which was lukily 1km away and left it there. now i was hoping that i didnt screw the head up, but we then fitted a new hose and the car ran like it was on 3 cylinders. now we changed the spark plugz, cheked the leads, fuel delivery seems to be fine, and most strange of all it doesnt mix coolant with oil or oil with coolant. now the only explanation is that the head has warped, but i also noticed that the car seems to have the same amount of power if not more cos it seems to handle the hill i go up to home faster!!!
if anyone has any suggestions feel free to say anything.
