After so many over heats.a car sometimes cant handle. after constant over heating your cars rubber gaskets could have gone bad and turned brittle letting in oil into spark plug well #1 for your spark plug problem i would recommend changing your valve cover gaskets. and for the over heating and not turning on. i believe you blew a head gasket.
1. Worn or broken rings on that cylinder
2. Valve guides or seals worn on that cylinder
3. To fix the rings you will have to remove the head and sump (Remove the motor from the car if you cannot remove the sump with it in the car)
4. Yes it will make your car run bad
you have a bad valve cover gasket/ spark plug o-ring i assume the plug is set in the head with valve cover above it since there is oil in the cover gaskets and o rings are used to seal in oil remove and replace gaskets be sure to find the right torque spec for the cover bolts also remember to start with the center bolts and work your way evenly to the outside
Sounds like your valve cover gasket is leaking oil into your spark plugs and is causing both of your problems. if you have oil on one of your plugs then that plug can't fire correctly causing the car not to start. I would suggest that you change the plug that has been fouled by the oil and check the wire if it got a lot of oil on it as well as the oil can degrade their ability to insulate, and the plugs will start arcing up the sides and engine will start misfiring. You should be able to change the valve cover gasket relatively easy with a couple of tools. Hope this helps. Thanks for ranking my response and for using FixYa!
no, not a blown headgasket, remove the valve cover and inspect the spark plug hole seals(tube seals in the valve cover) replace if brittle and old. also change the valve cover gasket since u have it off...adjust the valves as well
Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.
Firing sequence is off or plug wires are not connected completely. check the firing order, to the plugs and make sure all connections are on (you will have to push down on top of boot pretty hard to get a good connection)
If it is turing over jump starting isn't gonig to help (you battery if fine unless you have drained all the power from it)
