The spark plugs are probably wet with petrol, rather than oil.

This happens because they are not firing, and the petrol is not being burnt.

This is mostly likely caused by a faulty ignition system.

Does the car start at all? Does it run roughly?

My 2005 Nissan Altima will not turn over. It smells of gas & the spark plugs are wet. After it has been dried, it will start most of the time.


Sounds like a leaking pressure regulator, since one bad injector would only flood one cylinder.
Is it always getting spark to the plugs ? Keep in mind, once the plugs are fuel fouled they are easily fouled again.

What would cause my 2001 nissan altima gxe to have oil in the plug cylinder ?? It's only in one and the plug is not oil fouled.


Most likely a worn ring or valve seal. You'll have to check the compression to be sure which problem it is. If the compression is normal then the seal is most likely leaking. If the compression is low then the ring is worn.

I have a 2006 nissan altima that misses while driving


Misses that occur only under load are typically spark related. Engines typically need about 8000 to 12000 volts of spark energy to idle, but under load and acceleration, they can require as many as 30,000 volts. Weak coils frquently can still make 10-15000 volts, enough for light cruising and idling, but insufficient for load. Further, a defective boot or carbon tracked sprak plug may fire normally at idle and cruise, but "arc" down a black carbon track in the plug porcelin under load. You should take the car to someone who has the equipment to propely examine misfires. Or if you really feel the need to do it yourself, you could try pulling all spark plugs one at a time( assuming you dont have a scantool or trouble code data to point you to a specific cylinder) and visually inspecting them. They should ALL be clean and dry and white all around. If you see any black lines or marks in the porcelin of any spark plug, replace both that plug, and the wire or coil boot attatched to it. If you dont see any dirty or wet or oil soaked plugs, you likely have a weak coil that will require scan, scope, or load testing to isolate. Most professional shops have the equipment to do this.

Nissan altima 1998


I am not sure what you mean by a wet plug. If oil has fallen into the plug cavity simply remove the plug rubber boot (gently twist it off or you can break the connector under the rubber cap) and using an absorbant rag or towel to soak up the oil. Any oil residue film left will not affect the car- you may get some smoke from the oil burning off the hot plug.
