Billowing white smoke
Did contribution test 2 weeks ago and #3 failed. Then last week power got even less than when i did the contribution test, but intermittent. It would cut in and out every 10 seconds or so, and i could watch the boost change to compensate while on cruise control. It has been burning a little oil giving a little blue smoke. Then last Saturday, it started billowing white smoke and running very bad, wouldn't get the rpm up and didn't want to stay running. There was coolant all over the passenger side in the engine compartment and under the wheel well.
I did compression test and here are the results:
3) Less than 20
There is no fuel in the coolant. The oil is slightly brown, but not milky. Its very thick compared to a sample i took when i drained it the last 5000 miles. This oil has about 4200 miles on it.
What do you think it is?
