SOURCE: Spark Plugs

The oil on the spark plug usually comes from the valve cover seal or the spark plug tube. The valve cover seals to the tube and the tube seals to the head. The tube is usually a tight fit in to the head with a little sealant. The tubes can be purchased at the chrysler dealer or possibly at a local parts store. As for the red fluid,it is automatic transmission fliud . It is used in the manual transmission as well as the power steering system. You could have an axle seal leak, transmission shifter seal leak, power steering seal leak, depending on which side of the vehicle is wet.

the oil level may be good and quality may be good, but the oil pump may be going out considering the valve/engine noises. Have it checked quickly, before this engine locks up.

Engine only runs at idle


If it's a Chrysler/Dodge product, disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes and re connect it. Try starting, be sure the battery has a FULL charge when you do.

Excessive oil usage in Toyota Landcruiser 200 series


Pull the spark plugs to see which cylinder is burning the oil. The spark plug will be black or even wet with oil. There are three main reasons an engine will burn oil. 1) worn piston rings, 2) leaking valve stem seals and 3) a bad PCV valve.

Wet spark plugs


Wet plugs can be from 2 things -- excess fuel ==faulty injectors==excessive fuel pressure in manifold==faulty ECM and 2 excesive oil by passing the rings. have the fault codes read to find faults in the control systems sensors and have a compression test done to determine engine condition. That will also show if the wet plugs is from a cooling leakage problem

Cant tell if i am gettong fuel to the engine


Turn it over and then remove a spark plug. But only if it is Gas (No spark plugs on Diesel engines) If the plug is wet, you are getting fuel through. While you have the plug out you could check if you are getting a spark. Rest the plug against the engine block whit the lead connected. You will need a friend for this next bit. Turn the engine over and watch the plug for a spark. If it is diesel then the problem is more difficult to check and should be checked by someone with a reasonable degree of mechanical knowledge. Hope this helps.

Engine compartment partiallly submerged in water now wont start


1) you will need to drain the engine oil and refill it before you get it running again, the oil will be contaminated with water + change filter too.
2) you may also have water in the fuel, add a small bottle of methyl hydrate (gas line antifreeze) to your gas tank to neutralize the water.
3) remove your air filter and replace with a fresh dry one.
4) remove all the spark plugs and drape a clean white rag over the plug holes.
5) crank the engine over for about 30 seconds then have a look at the rag - if there are wet spots, there is water in the cylinders. repeat until you no longer get wet spots.
6) leave plugs out for a day for cylinders to dry out, then install fresh new plugs. as long as there is no internal damage, car should start now.
7) change engine oil and filter again to make sure all water is removed.

1999 1500 gmc savana wont start, it ran great, parked and now in the am it did not start...amp is good but oil gauge is low, we already add oil to it, it needed 2 qts...please help


May I ask how long since the last oil change? 2 quarts low is some serious oil loss. You are going to have to do some basic troubleshooting. Start by checking for blown fuses. Next, check to see if you are getting spark to the spark plugs. If you're getting spark, then check for fuel delivery. Do this by cranking the engine with the starter for a few seconds. Then pull one spark plug and see if it is wet with fuel. Let me know what you find and we will go from there. Good luck.

I had 92 honda civiv hatchback, the sparkplugs get wet with engine oil from vave cover, does sparkplugs has its own individual seals?


The spark plugs, if getting wet from the engine oil dripping off of the valve cover gasket, is not good.
The boots of the spark plug wires will prevent the contacts from getting oily, but not for long. I would have the valve cover gasket replaced to prevent this from happening. It's not good to get the spark plugs and wires wet with engine oil.

91 olds cutlass 2.3 having problem with gas mixing with the oil......... the 2 outside plugs are dry and the 2 middle plugs are wet with gas


The wet plugs are not firing. The engine must be running rough. Check for spark on the middle two. Find the problem and change oil and filter.

2000 vw passat 1.8t wont start


First make sure you do a basic tune-up on the car i.e. replacing spark plug wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor button, etc. Secondly, the plugs are probably just wet from fuel from not starting. The low oil pressure light coming on is normal when trying to start the car. Make sure to check for codes too and don't press the accelerator when starting the car, otherwise it will flood the engine.

1998 BMW Z3 1.9 Cylinder misfire codes. Rough on cold wet starts


Spark plug wires may be the cause. for cold damp start issues water is a conducter and will send spark directly to an engine ground not through spark plugs. also look for oil in spark plug wells this can also cause a misfire under certain conditions.
