92 toyota camry running like on only 3 spark plugs instead of 4, oil getting on spark plugs on the passenger side seeing like black shut on the inside of hood on passenger side


Stop the oil leak. There are gaskets and seals for wherever it's leaking. Valve cover gaskets or seals on the cover if the plugs are recessed. Is the black stuff oil that gets splattered up there?
Spark plugs can keep firing even with oil around the base, but the cleaner the better. A clean engine runs a whole lot better and cooler than one caked in oil. Just don't try to pressure wash it or you'll have worse problems.
It would help you if you could isolate a non firing cylinder, find the one that's missing, I mean. There is a way to find a miss on a running engine by isolating a cylinder that doesn't drop idle speed when the plug wire to that cylinder is removed. But please have someone do it that has done it before. They will know what spark shock means, and how to avoid or mitigate it, or anticipate it-lol. Thatsa lotta voltage!
If you pull the spark plugs out, may help you find the bad cylinder: one will look quite different, may be all black and soot covered on the bottom that is inside the cylinder. Good firing spark plugs will have a tan or brown appearance down at the bottom, with very little deposits on them. (and if black and oily looking and wet, you have likely worn piston rings letting oil burn in there.) So if you could find the miss, it will help you a lot. Maybe you need a tune-up, after looking at your plugs-are they worn down real bad?
Lots of causes for a miss: ignition (plugs, wires, rotor, distributor cap, coil even), gas related (if multiport injection, possibly an injector problem) , and also an internal mechanical problem affecting that cylinder (like a bad sealing valve, a head gasket leak: do a compression test to check for that).
I hope I have helped you in some small way. Good luck.

My drivers wiper does not work but the passenger does.


at the base of the arm is a plastic cover over a nut. remove the nut and with a gentle rocking motion pull the arm off. inside the concave hole in the base of the arm are splines which have been worn smooth. take the arm to a junkyard and have them find you one just like it, except that the splines are still there. there are lots of other cars with the exact same arm so any good size junkyard will have some. put the replacement arm on with its rest or down position just like the passenger side and snug the nut down. maybe put some loctite on it. now that they work, give some thought to manually unsticking them from the windshield when they are frozen on as opposed to letting the wiper motor tear them loose, which causes the smoothing of the splines.

1990 subaru legacy 2.2ltr auto with 189 kms. car heats up and pushes water out from reserve tank.no heat inside.new thermostat and water pump.no water visible in the engine oil and runs smooth.engine...


could be a crack in the cylinder wall on the low side, causing the compression to push the water out and not mix with the oil as its not leaking between oilway and waterway.

head gaskets are a weakpoint on the 2.2 and 2.5 as they are bored out to reach this capacity and this leaves less area for the gasket to bite down on around the cylinders. Fit a WRK steel gasket and get the heads torqued down properly, its a nasty job from an access point of view tho

HI. IT DOSN'T MATTER YOU HAVE TO START STRIPPING IT DOWN BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE 2 CYLINDERS THAT ARE AT 70 lbs THEY CAN'T FIRE RIGHT. SO WHEN YOU ARE AT A IDLE THOSE 2 ARE DEAD CYLINDERS UNTIL YOU BRING THE RPM's UP AND THEN THEY WILL FIRE. SO START AT THE TOP OF THE MOTOR AND WORK YOUR WAY DOWN. IF IT WAS ME WITH 220,000 ON IT I WOULD TAKE IT OUT ARE DO A MOTOR JOB ON IT. THANKS JIMBO I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

I have 94 miata with oil leak in back of the engine looks like it's coming from the right side somewhere


If I can remember,, check valve cover rubber where it seams with camshaft rubber on rear of cylinder head, the 1/2 moon rubber sits in a concave slot in head itself,usually removed, clean and reuse rubbers with a dab of silicone.

How to test head gasket (non running engine)?


Yes, remove all of the spark plugs, and test each cylinder individually. This will tell if the gasket has sealed properly. Once you get the engine running, do this again to see if it can hold combustion pressures.
