Water in spark plugs


Is the plug really clean? That usually means the cylinder head gasket failed. You would need to remove the cylinder head. (valve cover, intake manifold, timing belt/chain) clean off the mating sufaces, inspect mating sufaces for truness, possibly have them machined, install new head gasket, bolt down head to correct tourque, reinstall timing belt/chain, intake manifold, (install all new gaskets) and valve cover. It's a lot harder than it sounds, usually. Call at least 4 local mechs for a quote to replace head gasket on your car. Just a gasket kit alone could cost 90 to 300 bucks depending on your model. This is a major job. Google head gasket and your model and year , you may fiind youtube videos for you exact model or similar.

I HAVE A 1998 EL FALCON. WE REPLACED HEAD AND FITTED NEW TIMING CHAIN AND GUIDES. BY FOLLOWING MANUAL WE HAVE SET VALVE TIMING MARKS. BUT VALVES ARE OPEN WHEN SHOULD BE CLOSED. HAVE EVEN HAD FORD EXPERT ...


the piston has to be on tdc
the valves have to be in the valve rock position
that is the exhaust is just starting to close at the same time as the inlet is just starting to open
the number of links should now be at the timing marks or the timing marks should line up when the crank is turned one full revolution

Car mixes oil and water in the radiator.it snapped the timing belt and bend valves inlet and were replaced then orignal head gasket fitted bt problem continues.no mixing on dip stick


If it is still snapping the timing belt,then look for the cam hold downs to be torqued to tight,check lifters and followers for non movement,this would also cause the problem,when the timing belt is installed and ready,turn by hand the crankshaft multi revolutions to make sure there is no problems.

I have a 1998 sebring convertible 2.5L V6 that i changed the head gaskets and timing belt on. after putting the car back together i cannot get it to turn over. i did get it to crank once and than shut it...


Always turn an engine over by hand first man.turn it 2 revolutions of the crank and see if it turns freely.If tour starter will not turn the engine then tou may not have got your valve timing right and have valve to piston contact[not good] Check your valve timing again [with the plugs out turn over your engine by hand.

Bent valves


the timing chain is not correctly installed. you never just crank it over. After you install it, turn it by hand without the spark plugs in..... 2 revolutions and check the timing marks are where they should be. if you feel anything hit or it stops turning back off and figure out why, do not force it. it should turn easy.
