Run fault codes and look for faulty HO2S sensor problems. Check cat converter is not broken and blocking exhaust system. Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump and pressure regulator problems.

In the center of each valvecover is a well with a wire in it each wire has a seal cap attached pull up and youll find a stem which goes down a tube this is part of the spark plug wire the plugs are at the bottom of this tube youll need a long adapter on your wrench and socket for this job and you can extract the plug using the wires stem

Well, if it isnt broke, well you know the rest. As a kid in the shop we were directed to add dextron 3 to the fuel to decarbonize an engine. I have practiced this and my ford 5.8 that just hit 280,000 .. Cant say that was it, but point being it didnt hurt it. They actually make a old school fuel additive called Marvel Mystery Oil, It is Dextron 3 mostly. The oil consumption test you can do, Do a oil change , after 1000 mi. drain it and see that you have what you put in. That is what they are charging you too do. Is it worth it? umm, no

When I changed my spark plugs last month I noticed oil on them and my gas is going to quick. And I changed the spark plugs and replaced the air filter.

Hi There..
it is not unusual for oily looking deposits to appear on sparkplugs on vehicles and the fuel to go if the mixture and timing are not set up properly.check your settings, by the manufacturers hand book, set the plugs to the correct diode gap and if you are able, get a compression test done on your motor. if you still find what you beleive to be excesive deposit on your plugs and blue/grey smoke comming from your exhaust, then I suugest having a look at the valve stem guide oil seals, the may of gone hard and are allowing oil into the combustion chamber..
Good Luck.

Iam looking for the spark plugs on a 1998 isuzu rodeo the no spark wire i can see and how i would change the plugs

Each spark plug has its own coil. Pull out each coil so you can replace all spark plugs. The coil looks like this: 88f13d4.jpg

My Isuzu Rodeo O2 sensor light is on and I would like to fix the problem.Could anyone tell me where is that sensor located at?

There's also a circuit on the back of the instrument panel that causes the O2 lamp to light every so many miles- I guess its a way to remind you to change the sensor. To re-set the O2 warning circuit, you must remove the instrument panel and locate a set screw on the back of the green circuit board. Remove the screw from the receptacle it's in and relocate it to the receptacle next to it. This will re-set the warning light.

Gas in spark plugs

generally speaking it will be oil fowling plugs rather than fuel, but to do it that quickly you should be seeing lots of blue smoke and a sinking oil level. I have seen fuel fowl plugs but generally **** fuel. you should probably check the plugs are the correct ones for the car, all plugs have differing uses and just cause they fit dont make em right. you could also look at the condition of the rest of your ignition system ie condition of leads, coil/coil packs. Another thing you could check it the condition of the throttle body, looking for fuel colouring additive build up, or even wether it is set correctly (obviously a job for diagnostic tool).
