I guess the car smokes a lot also. This is a problem with you piston rings. If you have oil on your spark plugs then you need a ring job.Just make sure that it is oil and not gas. If it is oil you will see a bluish colored smoke coming from your tailpipe. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.thanks.

Where is my leak coming from?


Juan, Oil could be leaking from a lot of different location, places to start looking are oil pressure switch, valve cover gasket, timing cover/crank seal, oil pan gasket, etc. Engine may have to be washed down to locate leak. Have a good tech. scan vehicle for trouble codes, diagnose why car dose not run and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Water in all cylanders


Sounds familiar. If the engine oil is too full, oil will splash into the spark plug openings. Then, condensation will sit on the oil shorting the plugs. Be sure not to overfill. Also, the valve cover gasket has an inside seal. Once again, oil will partly fill the spark plug hole if the gasket is bad. There is a large hole in back of the valve cover leading right to the plugs. Be careful not to rinse the engine. Gaskets seal the plugs but water can sit on the plug openings.

Im trying to empty some oil from my 1996 nissan sentra gxe, i accendently overfilled it. where do i empty it from and how?


This will be a 2 person operation so be ready for this. It works great!!!!
If you have a shop vacuum, turn it on, remove the oil cap and cover the oil cap hole. Have some one under the vehicle and take out the drain plug using a 14mm wrench or suitible tool. Have a drain pan under the hole (oil pan). When ready have the person holding the vacuum remove the hose briefly to drain the oil. When you fill enough has drained then reinstall the plug and check you oil level. If more needs to be drained then repeat above steps till you achive you correct oil level.
besure to always replace drain plug washer/ gasket so you do not create an oil leak.
Hope this helps solve your concern.

Knock Sensor (Nissan Altima 2000 GXE picture of where it is located.


it is very simple. if you lay down underneath the car and look up at the oil filter it is just above the oil filter. you should be able to get it out with a 12mm wrench.

2001 nissan leaking oil out of the right valve 3.3L


See if you spark plug wires got oil soaked. If so replace wires 1 at a time. and replace valve cover gasket.
Also check other wires.

What would cause my 2001 nissan altima gxe to have oil in the plug cylinder ?? It's only in one and the plug is not oil fouled.


Most likely a worn ring or valve seal. You'll have to check the compression to be sure which problem it is. If the compression is normal then the seal is most likely leaking. If the compression is low then the ring is worn.

Oil Leaking slightly from engine block


Could be some thing as simple as a leaking filter, drain plug, or oil pressure sending unit. If it hasn't been in for an oil change lately, take it in, mention you have seen drops on the driveway, the tech will likely note the leak and possible solution. From this you can determine the cause and cost.
