2004 Lincoln LS V6 3.0
So I reinstalled the left side cylinder head (facing the front of the motor) with a new head gasket, but when I started up the car I got really rough idling and codes for cylinder 1 misfire and misfire on startup.
I look into the spark plug holes on the left side and cylinder 1 piston looked wet but the rest of the pistons were dry. I swapped the spark plugs from each side and started the car again, this time cylinder 2 misfires as well. Also there is coolant getting into the oil giving it a nasty sweet smell and a chocolate milk color.
So I have cylinders 1 and 2 misfiring, but cylinder 1 is wet while cylinder 2 piston is dry still. Is this the result of leakage and/or loss of compression? Should I look at replacing this head gasket again or could head gasket sealer work in this situation?
