If the bill was $480, you gave the mechanic $500 but received no change, take him to court.

I hv a Honda accord 94. It was running great but yesterday it start creating problem. Wen I try to push gas pedal it start missing n rpm needle goes upto 5000. I thought it could be coz of spark plugs so...

Looks like some engine oil goes into the cylinder and contaminate your spark plug, thus making your plugs miss.
Look where that oil damp spark plug located at cylinder number, in that cylinder the valve seal is to be replace immediately. Valve seal is located on top of the engine that seals the intake/exhaust valve and valve guide, from oil going in the cylinder.
You could ask your mechanic to do the job, it is a bit hard to replace it. the parts needed coat just under $5.
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Hello, a few problem with my 2001..yesterday the code read P404 i just changed the EGR valve a few months ago. also the car shacks at 70mph i got new tires changed the lower control arms mounts strut...

P0404 may be the valve sticking or not operating correctly. I hope you bought at least a AC DELCO valve, all others are not good enough. As for the car shaking @ 70 maybe they did not balance the tires good enough, have them drive it and recommend what to do, maybe you have a bad tire.

Reverse not working on 1996 dodge neon

There may be an internal leakage because of a dried up gasket on the valve body. Other seals and orings if dried out can break after so many cycles and fail under ppressure. I would hope a valve body gasket is leaking. Otherwise it could get deep. There sare several things that can be chk'd when the valve body is lowered to replace the gasket. Check ball sticking and function would be two. Make sure your fluid level is correct. Sometimes the simplest IS the answer to the problem. Good luck

Exhaust smoke - 1994 XJ6 4.0

you have bad valve seals again and it is possible that the valve guides are bad ( to much play ) i worked for Jaguar 13 years and i have done 100's of these and very few needed guides it sound like the seals where not done correctly at the last repair.

How do i change the stem rod seals on jaguar xj6

If I understand correctly your question, do you mean valve seals? According to my knowledge, it is a major operation, pulling out the cylinder head and changing them all together. Another way is to fill the cylinder with pressurized air trough the ignition plug hole, in order not to drop the valves into the cylinder and change them one by one. Both of the procedures require quite advanced mechanical skills and should be done by an experienced mechanic familiar with Jaguars.

Hyundai accent engine oil consumption

Hi ..... With this milage I'd expect at the same time the following would have been done, valve seals changed, valve guides checked/replaced, bores honed and valves reground into the cylinder head. Not to have done any of these is false economy and bad engineering practice.
The symptoms you state, esp'ly on topping up, point towards valve seals or guides.
Take the plugs out and examine, they should all be a light tan. Carryout a compression test across the bores and come back with the results.
