Did you check the gap on the new plugs? Get the wires back on plugs corectly? How old are your plug wires? Hope these questions lead you to your solution.

SOURCE: Method for changing Spark Plugs out on '99 Jeep Wrangler TJ 6CYL

Plugs is easy.

I use only Valvoline as it doesn't tend to gum or sludge my engines like Penzoil or Quaker State did.

I assume this is a 4WD since your asking about the gearbox, and it's an automatic.

SOURCE: 1999 nissan frontier is idling rough the truck

This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.
Regards
Sam

SOURCE: eng. shakes spits/sputters oil in spark plugs

I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.

SOURCE: Oil where spark plugs go?

For the oil it seems like head gaskets need replacing. As far as the electrical issue, sound like you may have a damaged wire from the ignition to the starter, I would try to trace the current to all electrical components; battery, starter alternator and see if you can find the area of the bad wire.

What runs the daytime lights, dash warning lights, and fuel pump. these seem to be the factors of why my truck only cranks but doesnt start.


Check all fuses and relay fuses. Then "crack" the fuel line to the injectors and crank to see if fuel is present. If fuel pressure is present, check for spark (Ensure no spilt fuel is around) by cranking with plug lead shorted off the spark plug.

You have two coils on this engine. Test each wire for spark with the engine running. You'll find at least one wire not sparking. replace the coil that has the wire that's not sparking.

fuel starvation from somewhere? filters,, sometimes two filters one by the tank and another under bonnet, dont think its plugs, but you can remove and use small wire brush to clean them. check the plug electrode colour to see fuel burn pattern on cylinders, should be lite brown deposits on electrodes, white electrodes = overheating and black sooty electrodes = to rich fuel mixture.

1999 cadillac catera there is oil in the spark plug hole why is that. it was running when it was parked, I was changing the ignition switch.everything seems to be fine, it turns over but will not start.


oil in the spark plug hole means that you need new valve cover gaskets. replace valve cover gaskets and change spaekplugs and the car may start.
