    I have a 1991 Acura Legend that wont start, i opened all of the spark plug wires out of all 6 wells and found two of them filled with oil covering half of the spark plug....the car also doesnt want to turn over....I cleaned the bays and tried to start it again the car barely started for about 3 seconds and than turned off...after that it never started....the threads are dry and the bottom tip that goes inside the engine was dry on both of them..and if you stand in front of the car, its the two spark plugs on the left hand side of the vehicle the two outer ones...its a v-6 and the layout is facing you just like the letter "v". can anyone help me????

This could simply mean that too much oil has been added and overflowed on to the engine.if the vehicule runs well and is not noisy i would not worry about it. the spark plugs should be inspected to make sure they are seating properly.always start the threading of the plug to the head by hand.

More than likely you have a leaking valve cover gastet. Not a head gasket.

Did you resolve this?
I drive a mk3 golf GTI 8V and mine starts fine but after driving for about 3 minutes (engine warms up) it starts to misfire, the car stalls and then you can't start it again until the engine has cooled. Does this sound similar?

ive had this problem the loud tapping noise if properly you have the wrong oil in the engine the lifters only have a very small hole in for the to get in so if it to thick it cant get in causing the slapping noise.
