That means the valve cover should come off,new valve cover gasket,and seals that keeps the spark plugs dry.

What is all needed for a tune up on a 1995 volvo 960


I usually service Ford family Brands and will try to assist you. Back in 1995 there was a change to longer service life sparkplugs and the elimination of Distributors with Crankshaft sensor firing of the plugs. It really depends on the Manufacturers' idea of when to replace sparkplugs by mileage and the various filters on the engine.

You can install plugs and filters anytime you want; just a matter of prematurely spending money on something you do not need. Air filters 12,000 miles, Sparkplugs 50,000 to 100,000 miles, Serpetine Fan Belt 40,000 to 45,000 miles, Fuel filter 25,000 to 45,000 miles.

Check with Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys for information about Manufacturers specs. Stay on an oil change interval based on your driving habits. Sometimes oil breaks down without higher miles and you need to change by date rather than by use. Clean oil for Winter starts, clean oil for Summer driving. Twice a year is adequate for low mileage. Watch your Antifreeze, it chemically changes after 3 years and loses corrosion inhibitors.

I hope at least some of my suggestions are useful to you.

I HAVE AN 89 GALANT AND IS LEAKING A YELLOWISH CREAMY LIKE STUFF OUT OF THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING WHAT IS THIS FROM?


Sounds like you have engine oil leaking into the coolant. If so it could be anything from an intake manifold to a head gasket leak. You should pressurize the cooling system, remove the sparkplugs, and look for signs of coolant in the cylinders.

Added 3 quarts of oil now white smoke is coming from exhaust


you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.

I have oil in the sparkplugs


You may need new oil rings on your pistons. Have you checked your compression? Have you checked for any gasket leaks? How new is your plugs? You may also want to try a synthetic oil or 10w 30 instead of 5W.
