Looking at the the pic of the cylinder head No1 is about the only one that is showing the correct colour - so power was down on 3 cylinders.
In reply to the quote above: You cannot assume there is any loss of power from 2,3,4 just due to the colour of the deposits as cylinder 1 has been washed out from the coolant leak..
So If coolant was introduced to the other cylinders then the deposists on those would have also been washed out..
In this case the washed cylinder indicates the area where the combustion leak was, and has been proved by the damaged gasket at the cylinder 1 position.
Of course due to the high traffic levels now and poor public transport, increases in Town & Stop-Start driving will induce the carbon build up.
Remember the old days where regular "de-cokes" were required and the use of products like Redex.. ?? LOL
