SOURCE: i have an oil leak in a spark plug chamber how do is fix it

depends where the oil came from.of it has leaked down from a valve cover gasket,that is not hard to fix.if it a leaking valve seal that is expensive and if the head gasket is leaking,expensive.look at the outside edge of the valve cover,and check the edge for oil.if there is alot of oil,by the time the plug is unscrewed oil can go inside.the oil would burn off,so if there is oil inside it is dripping down probably from a valve seal.take off the valve cover and inspect the seals they are probably no good.there are 2 seal sets,one is in the valve cover,and that results in oil on the outside of the plug,and the actual valve seal which results in oil in the inside of the engine.

SOURCE: i just changed spark plugs in my 2002 ford escape

I would replace the spark plug cable as well. It is quite easy the damage old plug wires when removing them to change the spark plugs. A good way to check this is to pull off a spark plug wire (one at a time), then start your car. If it became worse then move to the next wire until you find one that is causing the miss. Make sure you shut the vehicle off before touching the wires. Then switch it out with one of the other wires. Make sure you change it at the coil as well. Now recheck for the miss. If it moved then it's the wire. If not the you might need to recheck that plug gap and also inspect the inside of the distributor cap. You may need to replace that as well.
Plugs, Wires, Cap and Rotor should really all be replaced at the same time.

How come I have oil on my spark plug


If you're referring to oil on the top side of the plug, it is a valve cover leaking.

2008 ford escape transmission fluid change


If you do not have an oil dip stick for the transmission the you will not be able to do this service. the drain plug (if there is one) will be in the bottom to one side . But if you do not have one then the pan comes off and the filter changed and then the correct volume of oil is sucked into the transmission by the pump. IT requires fully qualified people to carry out this service

2001 ford escape 3.0 engine no power in cylinders 4,5,and 6


wonder if it brings a check engine light on? check your coil packs spark plugs/wires - could be a bad injector - could be a vacuum leak - could be an intake leak causing anifreeze to be introduced into the combustion chamber - same with the head gasket could be blown causing the same effect as an intake gasket most of the time if you check your spark plug they will tell you everything like oil on them would be black and oily if its been introduced to water/anifreeze could show signs

I need to know where the oil filter is??


Looking under the car the oil filter is located just behind the front bumper, a little off to the passenger side. Should be one of the first things you see once you get past the bumper.
The link below has a very detailed step-by-step video of the entire oil change process, including locations of the oil drain plug and oil filter. Hope that helps.

Oil leak around #1 spark plug of 2002 Ford Escape 3.0L V6 (spark plug is when on outside when removed - Oil leaks down engine onto exhaust). Anyone have an engine diagram so I can learn what lies in/near...


Sounds like valve cover gasket is leaking. It leaks down side of engine onto everything in it's path. Stop by a local parts store and have them take a peak, they'll be glad to help you out.

Oil on front spark plugs


I just had this problem with my 2002 Ford explorer. I took it to the shop and it was the valve cover gasket. This was causing some slippage and white smoke from exhaust.
