zlac109 is an unknown quantity at this point

So, i start doing my usual service and check up on the car and i notice a slight crack in my cyliner head where there is a small leak of cooling liquid. Couldn't tell how bad the leak was coz it was the back cylinder and visibily was very bad, however my qustion is could this have caused my surge in the fuel injection which i have been unable to fix for ages now. When i say surge i mean even when accelerating, the MPG indicator moves up and down and the acceleration itself goes more and less.
Any ideas?

That's crappy, I'm sorry.

Does your coolant have a gas/ milky apperance? ... And yea, you're right. That crack would very possibly fuck up your compression and thus ur acceleration... Dunno about your fuel injector having a problem so much as the fuel and air not staying in the combustion chamber when the piston rises... but who knows. Did you check the others?
