Question about Cars & Trucks
If your oil smells like petrol (gas) this is a big problem. Drain the oil and replace it and the filter. I would take a sample of the oil to a mechanic just to get his opinion. Gas getting into the oil on a modern car (fuel injected) is less common then just burning oil but has been known to happen. Knocking sound is usually crank shaft damage which is not a good prognosis. It is likely if fuel is in there now it will get in there again - Your best chances are to use as heavy weight semi-synthetic oil you can get with the aim that the oil pressure will mean you burn oil in preference to fuel pressure pushing its way into your sump.

1.1 mm is the standard gap for a platinum tipped plug. Plugs for this car usually come pre-set but it's always worth checking before installing. Hope this helps.

noise is caused by lack of oil to lifters, or worn timeing chain. if noise is from lifters it should go away wit proper oil level, if still there needs timeing chain.

first try the fues box see if you have a blown fues, next if you put your wipers on can you hear the motor running for them? if you can the linkage has poped off from the motor, its a bit awkward to get it back on and no gaurentee that it will saty on, you might have to replace linkage, or, it might be the cogs on the actual wiper arms have splayed and are now smooth so they dont grip to move, you can take them off by the nut on the arm , get a can (coke can or simular) cut a rectangle out of it the hight and width if the cog, rap it round the cog, (make sure it does not overlap on the ends) and force the arm back into place and then do the nut up, this is just a short quick fix if that is the case you will have to replace the motor, also you can check the relay to the motor in the fues box, give it a tap a couple of times it might work again if not replace it...hope you find these sugestions helpful
