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.

Is the motor blown if there is water in the spark plugs and it smells burnt


The motor isn't blown but you have a defective or blown head gasket. A garage can test with a coolant pressure tester. You will often see your water level going down. If you remove the oil filler, look for a creamy deposit like mayonnaise on the cap. Pull the dipstick and see if you see droplet of water, or the oil is milky.

2001hyundai accent signs of blown head gasket


Same as any other engine. The head gasket can blow between two cylinders, in which case compression in each will be very low, or it can blow/leak water into oil such that the oil will be milky looking, or it can blow to the outside and show as leaks. One good way to test individual cylinders, is to remove a spark plug and screw in an air chuck made for this use and hook up compressed air. Is you then see bubbles in the radiator coolant gasket is leaking, or if the dipstick blows out the leak is to the oil.

No compression number 1 cylinder did the leak test on valve no leaks piston looks ok please help


There are 4 main possibilities:
- Bad Valve seats
- Bad compression rings
- Bad head gasket
- Bad piston.
If there is no compression as in ZERO on a compression test, I'd look for a stuck open valve or a hole in the piston.
A blown head gasket will give different symptoms depending on where it's gone. Look for water in the oil, low coolant level, pull the oil filler cap and look for water vapour.

Water in oil


Water in the oil is most likely a head gasket leak-blown head gasket. You will have to pull the cylinder head off and replace the head gasket. If it's a V6 or V8 engine, a compression test will tell you which bank of the engine has the head gasket problem. One cylinder or two cylinders next to each other will have low compression.

Car overheated random cylindar misfire after the overheat after it heats up it bogs down and eventually dies. I have done a compresion test 2 center cylander are 10-15 psi depending also little black...


if the center 2 cylinders have only 10-15lbs pressure then you need to do a wet compression test to see if it is valves or piston rings that are bad.put about tablespoon of oil into each cylinder and turn over motor and redo the compression test.if the compression goes up you have a ring problem if it doesn`t it is a valve problem.you should check the oil to see if it has a white-caramel look to it as this indicates water in the oil.(head gasket) if the coolant level is low it can be burning coolant,you should have the cooling pressure tested just in case.it could possibly be a cracked head.if it overheats because of the low compression(sometimes happens) the motor is working twice as hard(runs hotter) as the other good cylinders have to work harder to do the same amount of work,

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It's definitely a damaged head gasket. If the head gasket is damaged you'll have an oil and water mixture that's milky in appearance. You will need to have it replaced and be sure that you check if the head itself has cracks. If it has, a machine shop will be helpful.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

How do i tell if the heads creaked on a 91 celica


a cracked head or blown head gasket,will cause your vehicle to have a miss in the cylander where the crack is or where the gasket is blown. you can also see coolant leaking if the gasket is blown. you can also see water in the oil,and white smoke come from the exhaust.
to tell for sure that the head is cracked,and not just a blown gasket is to remove the head. you will instantly see if the gasket is blown. if its not,then turn the head upside down and look at the small space between the valves,as this is where 99% of cracks occur.

Cooling System - Fiat Siecento 2002


When checking for a blown head gasket, one of the most common tell-tale signs is a milky-gray ring around your oil cap. When coolant enters the engine oil through a crack in the head or through a blown gasket, it evaportats and leaves a milky ring around the oil cap. Another easy way to tell is to check your oil dipstick. Change your oil and pull out the dipstick. Make sure that you take note of how far up the dipstick the oil is. Top off your cooling system and fill your cooling resevoir to the top. Screw radiator cap back on and start engine. Run engine for about 20-30 mins. or until it reaches normal operating temperature. Allow engine to cool (engine must cool completely to get accurate oil reading!!). Check oil dipstick again. If the oil has a watery appearence and has risen noticibly up the dipstick, the you probably have a blown head gasket or a warped head. Also look for a dripping, sweet-smelling liquid coming out of your tailpipe. Any of the above symptoms could be the result of a blown head gasket. The easiest way to tell is with a compression meter. This replaces the spark plug and lets you know what compression each cylander is running at. If your compression is abnormally low, then you have a blown head gasket or a warped head. (note: consult repair manual for appropriate compression of each cylander.)

My 1980 944 as the motor warms up it gradually begins to smoke a white smoke the cylander compression is good the plugs have a white color to them is it fuel injection ,maybe head gasket although there is...


White smoke suggests to me that your brake master cylinder may be leaking into your booster and the diaphragm may be split, thus allowing brake fluid into the engine.
