SOURCE: 1992 ford tempo oil leak?

Definently sounds like the rear main seal. My 97' Dodge Ram has the same issue and it leaks in the exact spot and has the same symptoms. Changing the gasket on the rear seal in simple but it's hard to get it apart to get to it unless you have the right tools and mechanic know-how. Your car seems to be leaking more than mine so it seems to be worst, but it is most definently the rear main seal. I put gasket maker/sealer on mine and it temperarely stopped the leak but due to pressure it will always seem to start again. Your best bet is saving the money or if you have it, invest it and go ahead and have the problem fixed. Hope I was of some help.

SOURCE: 83 Ford F350 Diesel Dually Smoking from oil

I have an old IDI 6.9 diesel. They tend to burn oil, and that would be normal. Just keep a check on your fluids, and unless the smoke is excessive it should not be a problem. I must say though, I personally think the IDI's were the best diesels ever built. They last forever. If you really want to treat your truck to a nice treat, after you fill your tank, dump a quart of auto trans fluid in the fuel. The additives, cleaners,and lubricants in the trans fluid really help to clean all the carbon and build up out of the injection pump, and clean the gunk from the valves and cyllinders. I usually do it every other month or so.

SOURCE: There is white smoke coming out of the exhaust

Unfortunately you have a blown head gasket. The white smoke you are seeing is anifreeze burning.
If it was blue smoke it would be burning oil.
Gasket is in the top of the engine and must be replaced or you will ruin the rest of the motor.
Usually it's a $1800 repair with parts & labour.

SOURCE: Oil leak around #1 spark plug of 2002 Ford Escape

Sounds like valve cover gasket is leaking. It leaks down side of engine onto everything in it's path. Stop by a local parts store and have them take a peak, they'll be glad to help you out.

2007 ford 4.0 v6 why are all my spark plugdls on passenger side oil soaked but drivers side is fine doesn't smoke did compression test all good not a blown intake gasket had it checked anyone know?


Hi Josh:
I'd put fresh plugs in it and drive it for a week, then check the plugs.
Sometimes you will get high compression readings that are not valid because the rings are soaked in oil so they think they are sealed when they are not.
With the engine off, you could try removing the oil filler cap when the engine is hot, then restart it. A little vapour is OK, a lot indicates bad valve guides, head gasket,or ring blowby.
Also, try checking inside the exhaust tailpipe. If it is oily sooty it is also an indication of possible ring problems.
Review the maintenance history. How many miles on the engine? Could be the engine is getting tired.

What causes the black oily stuff on brand new expensive spark plugs


Usually a bad ring or seal inside your engine allowing oil to get into the combustion chamber where the tip of the spark plug is located. Do you notice any smoke coming from the exhaust pipe ?? Do you seem to be adding oil more often ?? If so, the black oily stuff is "engine oil".

2001 Ford E-250 has excessive oil consumption with no visible leaks and has a p301 misfire code


Do you notice any blue smoke out the tailpipe?
The P0301 code means you have a misfire in cylinder 1. If I were to put these two symptoms together, I would guess that there is oil leaking into the cylinder, which is causing it to misfire. The oil then burns out the back.
If this is the case, it is probably because your spark plug tubes are leaking. Replacing the valve cover gasket or spark plug tube seals (some cars have a valve cover gasket that has the tube seals included) will solve the problem.

You can check for the leak by pulling the spark plug wire out of that cylinder and seeing if it is oily. If it is, there is your leak.

This is just a first guess. Let me know what you find.
Also, let me know about whether or not your tailpipe has blue-colored smoke coming out.

1991 Honda Accord, 213k, changed oily sparkplugs and now engine blows excessive smoke and oil continuously out the exaust from start up to shut down.


Old spark plugs were likely fouled with oil and not burning fuel (and oil) completely so minimal smoke before change out. New plugs are clean and burning everything in cylinders well including oil (therefore more smoke). If smoke from exhaust is blue, then engine oil is getting into cylinders either through worn out piston rings, or a leaking gasket. If black smoke, then this is a sign of too much fuel getting into cylinders and not all the fuel is getting burnt during combustion (a fuel system problem).

I have a 1991 d150 p/u and it has blue smoke from exhaust when started


If it smokes more when you first start it than other times, the common cause is leaking valve guides in the cyl heads.
The guides leak oil into the cylinders when the engine is not running.
Most other causes would make the engine smoke when running or under load too.

Engine uses about 3/4 quart oil every 3000 km.no apparent oil leak. mileage 200k


Is you tail pipe black and slightly oily? If so you are burning oil on one of the cylinders. To find out which one, look at the spark plugs the condition will tell you which one. New plugs could help somewhat. But eventually, the rings will get worse and then you will start smoking badly and not pass emissions. So eventually you will have to tear it down and rebuild.

Chevy Prizm or Toyota Corolla 2000 valve cover gasket problem? Right after oil change, engine check light came on & car started smoking & losing oil. I took out all 4 spark plugs: they were in very...


The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.
