SOURCE: replace valve stem oil seals

Make up an airline fitting that will screw into spark plug hole, or buy from autoparts , or tools supply place. You put compressed air in cylinder while changing, which holds valves in place.

SOURCE: oil around spark plugs on 1992 honda accord

Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.

93 ram150,318 plugs fouling out in forty miles burning fuel I've replaced rotor,cap wires plugs came with NGK 1yr. replaced with auto lite.35 thriy miles fouled out NOW BOUSH GAP .45 what can I do


a 93 ram 150 318 engine bay search comes up with a carby set up

will reply to that set up

how many miles on the engine
any other issues other than fouling plugs ?

running rich ?
anti pollution or EGR valve not working properly
carboned up intake manifold
poor cylinder compression
if not
could have hardened oil stem seals and the oil is dribbling down the valves into the combustion chamber
you wont see smoke out the tail pipe

valve stem seals can be replaced with the heads on

you could go to iridium plugs

I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue that keeps fouling the number 4 plug. Someone said to check the compression on the number 4 hardened valve stem seals. What should compression be?


I believe 140 is minimum. New is 200+. It also needs to be within 15% of the ones beside it. If it fouls out soon, most likely the rings on the piston are bad. They do make anti foulers for spark plugs.

Rocam1.6 06 model uses oil sparkplug No2 gets wet with blk carbon, misfirin smokin white.If I change tht spark plug it goes well For3 days.Mechanic changed the rings after 6 weeks problem persists.hlp


The carbon suggests that oil is finding its way into that cylinder and oiling/carbonising the plug.

The mechanic changed the rings so it's doubtful that the oil is finding its way into the cylinder, past the rings. The only other thing I can think of is that the valve stem guide is worn (this would allow oil down into the cylinder) or the valve stem seal is perished/worn.

The photos below are generic images. They are NOT of your car:




26063798-uep1qeforvmfktksxbn30q5u-5-0.jpeg A valve in the valve guide. A worn guide can allow the valve stem to 'rock' and permit oil to trickle down the valve stem into the cylinder.



26063798-uep1qeforvmfktksxbn30q5u-5-1.jpeg The seal itself - rubberised.

There's many different types of seal. General image below just for illustration purposes:


26063798-uep1qeforvmfktksxbn30q5u-5-3.jpeg
Bluish smoke indicates that oil is being burnt in a cylinder. To be honest, worn valve guides/worn seals are quite common. You say your car is misfiring? That would indicate quite a lot of oil is fouling the plug. In most cases there would be no misfire after just 3 days. The exhaust would cough out bluish smoke at start up and maybe on the over-run, when going downhill.

A short term measure is to try a can of valve seal additive to see if the problem temporarily goes away. Repair is the best option though.

Try a can of valve seal? It's worth a shot..

Rear spark plug bank is fouled. The 3 in front are fine. What cold be the problem?


I am assuming it is oil fouled rather than fuel fouled. Oil fouling is usually due to valve stem seal leakage. Most engines have the oil return on the cylinder head at the rear. When the engine is shut off, some oil pools at the rear of the head. If the valve guide seals are worn, then the oil will leak around the stem of the #4 valve and eventually foul the plug. If there are no real issues with the engine other than this one, it is usually best to keep a clean plug or two available and swap out the plug periodically when fouling is detected. Then clean the fouled one and keep for reuse later. If it is happening too often, getting the cylinder head reconditioned is a good idea.

Oil fouling out spark plugs after running in my 1992 acura integra. I pulled the plugs and cleaned them and it starts up right away. I drive it, park it, but it won't start again. Oil is pumped into...


if oil is fouling the plug after vehicle has been standing for a period of time it is getting down through the valve seals into the cylinder,you will need to replace the valve seals & may be the valve guides as well,it might be cheaper to install a reconditioned cylinder head,if the plug is fouling up whilst driving for a period of time the problem is with the piston rings (mainly oil rings) & that means replacing the rings & possibly bearings as well......hope this helps......cheers

Oil in #1 spark plug tube, plug wire popped off changed valve cover gasket and the upper tube seals. It ran fine for about an hour then started missing again


Was the plug fouled again after you made repairs? Did you install a new plug and run it? If the plug itself is fouling you probably also see blue smoke in the exhaust pipe. Get the engine warm, check compression and do what is called a cylinder leakage test, it puts a volume of air into each cylinder with the valves closed and how much air leaks out determines the over all health of the engine. Does the engine have excess oil consumption? The oil entering the cylinder and fouling the plug can enter from a worn valve guide or guide seal, a worn or damaged oil control piston ring or a worn or damaged piston bore or piston, none of which are going to be inexpensive to fix.

Good luck, i hope this helps.

My vitara p reg 2L started smoking on start up, now it is misfiring any ideas where i start, I can't see any spark plugs in the engine-maybe i'm blind or stupid


Many new cars hide most of the engine underneath plastic covers that must be removed to find anything. The smoking problem may or may not be serious, but it's likely that the spark plugs will show black oily deposits on the interior insulators. Cleaning or replacing the plugs will usually make the engine run ok for awhile, but with continued smoking, it will foul the plugs again. If all the plugs are fouled, then look for something like a bad PCV valve that creates crankcase pressure when plugged. Worn out valve seals which allow oil to leak into the cylinders can account for smoking only on start-up. These seals can usually be replaced without pulling the cylinder head. Hope this helps!

I have a 2003 ford expedition it smokes sometimes when i crank it what could be the cause of this the smoke is blue


blue smoke is oil possible worn or damaged component in head-usual problem is valve seal or worn valve guides -pull and inspect the spark plugs look for which one[s] is fouled or oil soaked that will narrow down where ur problem is

The car jerking and chugging and there is oil coming out of the exhaust


sounds like u haven't regularly serviced the car ! If there is oil coming out of exhaust it will most properly be a fouled spark plug or plugs but the reason 4 it fouling plugs would be either leaking valve stem seals or piston rings!!!
Change spark plugs and see if problem rectifies!
