If oil is mainly on outer section of spark plug and possibly on lead or coils the rocker cover gasket is leaking if centre electrode of spark plug is wet and you have blue smoke burning out of exhaust pipe when running and possible missfire then it is engine trouble

There are only a few things that will put oil into the cylinder. Bad valve seal/s, bad piston rings, or a bad head-gasket. You would need to preform a compression test, check and for excessive blow-by. It could be related to a cracked head or engine block. But this is not common. I have really only seen this with abused engines (lack of oil changes,low on oil for a long time, or over heating). Take care of this ASAP, the oil is clogging the CAT and will add to this new expense.

Engine oil in cyliders with spark plugs


it means that the rubber gasket and the rubber seals on the spark plugs got hard and allows oil going through to spark plugs.What you have to do? If you know how,remove the rocker cover and renew the gasket and the seals for the spark plugs and your problem stop to exist.

Where are the Spark Plugs located in a 2004 Lincoln Navigator?


Hello, first how many miles do you have on this Lincoln? On that 4.6 L V8 engine they do have spark plugs but each plug has it's own spark coil located on a long rubber plug. You will see four little coils on each side of the engine. There will wires going in to the individual coils. There will be a bracket the holds the coils in place with a small 9 or 10 mm nut. Remove the nut, and gently pull on eac coil. There Hello, first how many miles do you have on this Lincoln? If you have over 120 thousand miles on this engine then it might need new spark plugs. On that 4.6 L V8 engine they do have spark plugs but each plug has it's own spark plug coil. You will see four little coils on each side of the engine. There will wires going in to the individual coils. There will be a bracket the holds the coils in place with a small 9 or 10 mm nut. Remove the nut, and gently pull on each coil. There a long rubber plug that fit in each spark hole. These rubber plugs are about 4 1/2 to 5 inches long.


Before removing the plug use an air hose with 50 to 60 lbs of pressure to blow each spark plug hole out which might have foreign object in the hole. Why, if you remove the spark plugs, and there is foreign material in that plug hole. Guess what, that stuff will fall into the combustion camber.



Then you will really have some problem. How fix if stuff fall into the combustion camber.

Squirt small amount of oil in the combustion camber, unplug all the coils and clear out there plug hole. Now remove all the spark plugs. Now, you can crank the engine and will the little amount in that cylinder that has the junk in it. The oil will wet the foreign debrie, and blow it out the spark plug hole. Then use a clean rag with with some oil it with a long screw driver to clean that spark plug hole Be careful that don't push the foreign material back into the combustion camber. Do this several time with little amount of oil.



Now, you can install the new spark plugs. On the spark plugs threads use some anti-shiz grease. Why squirt oil into the combustion camber? The oil is used to seal the rings on the piston to increase the cylinder compression. Just a small amount goes a long ways. GB...stewbison

Replace rear spark plugs on 2.7 liter 2006 dodge stratus


I have a 2001 Stratus with the 2.7L V6. From what I understand, the engine compartments are very similar. When I change the rear spark plugs, I have found that I need to use a spark plug socket on a 6" extension, with an elbow socket. There isn't enough space in the engine bay to get straight over the spark plugs, and I have yet to find an easier way than simply using a elbow socket.

When installing new spark plugs, it's always a good idea to use a small amount of anti-seize on the threads.

Oil in spark plugs


you mean oil under plug wires? your plugs are in the center of the valve cover? if so, you have a vlave cover leak, the oil will rise and short out the plugs so they will not fire. remove the oil from around the plugs, then replace the valve cover gasket and plugs, try to start again
