2003 mitsubishi eclipse oil inthe base of #2 cyclinder
2003 mitsubishi eclipse, won't start. Was making noise that sounded like air escaping the engine last night. Acted like it would stall out when you would stop. Would not start this morning. We pulled the spark plugs and the #2 cyclinder has oil at the base and around the nut.

First you need to find the source that is causing noise. On cold weather is very normal engine belts or belts idle pulley bearings or belt tension-er to make noise, especially when they are old. Also power steering pump too especially if the oil is very old.
The oil light does not indicate the car is low on oil (based on your discription) it indicates the oil pressure is low, the no start is most likely due to this low pressure and the fuel pump has been cut off to prevent damage to the engine from low oil pressure. Please have a shop locate the cause of the low oil pressure warning and repair it as needed. It could be a false light or a real one, which means if you drove it very far you may have damaged the engines bearings.
Spray starting fluid in the intake air to see if it is a fuel problem. If it starts then you are looking at a fuel pump or filter. If not then we will have to go through some more diagnostics but this is the starting point. Do you have the original ignition key for it. These keys are chiped and a copied key will not work. email@example.com
No. The valves are hydraulic. Pour about a coke tin amount of diesl in with the engine oil. Run the enginr to normal teperature. Drain the oil and refill with new oil. It sounds like a lazy or blocked follower. Once you do this it should disappear.
burned valve is likely the culprit.... or bad rings.... hook air up to that cyclinder one at a time.... and listen where the air is escaping... be aware that the motor will rotate till the piston is at the bottom of it's rotation. if it's a burned valve you will have to remove the head and replace it but somewhat easier job then replacing the rings. darn almost forgot.... it can also be a blown head gasket.... same procedure but you might need a brush and some soap water to test for an air leak at the side of the head. when you are done spray some wd 40 on it to get the water off so the spark plugs do not arc.
