Question about Toyota Camry

1 Answer

This morning I was taking my husband to work and all of a sudden my car which is a 96 toyota camry started spitting and sputtering and shakeing real bad. Well I went out there and took all the wires off the spark plugs and there was oil in my number 3 plug hole. Can someone please tell me what could be wrong?

Good news. Oil doesn't leak up out of the cylinder so the oil came from above~ probably a leak in the valve cover, and ran down along something else into the spark plug hole.That might sound crazy if you didn't see oil anywhere else but the route it took is probably hidden by other components. The oil would have fouled your plug and caused it to run that way. If it was blowing up out of the valve it would have been burnt .

Sounds like a dead spark plug or faulty wire, or even out of time. Start with changing plugs. No change, do the wires. No change check the timing belt. It may have jumped a cog. As for the slow to warm up part, the misfire won't help that problem, but you may need to change the thermostat if it doesn't improve once you get it running on all cylinders.
