First, check your dipstick and make sure you are not overfilled. Too much oil will cause these problems. If there is too much oil, do an oil and filter change and see if it helped.

Your engine should be missing. Replace the oil soaked plug and see if it helps. It will foul out shortly if there is a more serious problem. You should have a compression test to determine the next step.

If the problem was not too much oil, you may need valve seals or a head gasket or new rings for the bad cylinder. There is only a slim chance that tightening the head bolts will eliminate the problem. Get the compression test done at a reliable Repair shop.

Why is there water around the spark plugs?


There's either a big loss of coolant from somewhere such as a hose or cylinder head.

It could also be a faulty cylinder head gasket/cylinder head.

Does the car overheat? Overheating is a symptom of head problems as is loss of power.

Check the coolant level - has it dropped?
Start the engine and see if any air bubbles appear in the coolant. If so, it probably is caused by exhaust gas leaking through the head/head gasket into the cooling system.

Check your engine oil dipstick. If the oil is a greyish/creamy colour that indicates coolant has found its way into the oil system. Cylinder head problem ..

Get somebody to check your car for you. Don't drive it if there's suspected head problems - you'll cause more damage

Engine Overheating and too much oil to be drained out.


if the oil was milky in appearance then you can suspect a blown head gasket. Coolant is mixing with the oil causing the oil level to rise. Has the coolant level gone down? Check your spark plugs. The cylinder with the leaking head gasket will have a cleaner spark plug. If the leak is bad enough you can see water squirting out of the spark plug hole when you crank the engine with the starter. You will also see steam coming out of the exhaust pipe when the engine is running.

Yes you are correct the water pump is driven by the timing belt so if it leaks it will run down the back side of the engine from behind the timing belt cover :)

Overheating, not when sitting. bottom hose


I hate to say this but it could be going straight into the engine, if it's not leaking or doing back into the overflow/rad..

Note I've included the instructions/info about knowing if your head gasket is blown (which could be causing the antifreeze to leak into the engine) This should help you out a bit diagnosing the problem.

1. Exhaust: When you have a gasket leak, you will notice white smoke coming out of your tailpipe. Sometimes drops of water will drop from the end of the tailpipe. The exhaust will also have a sweet smell to it.


2. Spark Plugs: Your spark plugs will display one of the last signs of a blown head gasket. If you have green dyed coolant in your system, the spark plugs will have a green tint around them. If the problem is very severe, the coolant may start squirting out of the plug holes which is not good.


3. Oil: You will notice a milky type ring surrounding your oil cap. This is caused by coolant entering the engine oil through the leaking gasket. This mixture leaves the milky type ring around the oil cap when it evaporates. You can check for this by taking the car for a short drive, then checking the oil for contamination.


4. Engine: Lack of engine power is a sign of a blown head gasket. The engine will lack power due to compression loss. The engine will also run poorly and will idle roughly. You should also be careful because the engine will overheat quickly when you have a blown head gasket.


5. Bubbles: A gasket leak will cause bubbles of air to come into your radiator. To check for this, you should first remove the radiator cap then warm up the engine. When you rev the engine, you will see bubbles come out from the top of the radiator.


Hope this helps, best regards, Happy Holidays!
