Hello. It sounds like the car needs help. Yes you might need to do a whole new tune-up. You will need new spark plugs, new spark plug wires and a new distributer. You also should know how old your car is and how much mileage it has and that you might also need to change the fuel filter. Good Luck.

Miss fire but no lights on changed the plugs and fuel filter also changed dist cap also checked for a good spark


A lean fuel mixture will not yield poor fuel economy but a misfiring cylinder will.You have already replaced the coils and the plug leads to the cylinders in question so they should not be an issue.Do the codes still indicate a misfire on cyls. 2 & 3? If so have you looked at the plugs? Has the oil leak around the plugs been stopped? Are they oil fouled? Could the pooling oil around the plugs be shorting the spark discharge to ground?or Valve Cover gasket is leaking. That's why you see some motor oil in the sparkplug sleeve (tube). removed the spark plug and My suggestion is to remove the sparkplug in cylinder 2 & 3 or whichever ones that the scanner indicated as "misfiring". Take a look at the sparkplugs and see if there's any oil around it. If you see any traces of oil, that means your gasket is worned out and need to replace.Good Luck in getting your problem fixed. If you need any further help - I'll try to help you the best of my knowledge and skills. You can repost on this

Oil get into spark plug well. need to know how to replace the valve cover gasket on a 2003 dodge intrepid sxt . clean sparkplugs well of all oil and replaced sparkplugs


Hi
these are the things you need to do.

Allow the car engine to cool by letting the car sit idle for several hours. Lift the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the upper intake manifold assembly. Using the spark plug tool, remove the spark plugs. Disconnect the spark plug wires. This can be accomplished by pulling straight out on the boot. Locate the cylinder head and disconnect the closed ventilation system and evaporation control system from it.

Locate the left cylinder head cover and remove the DIS coil. Using the wrench, loosen and remove the rocker arm cover mounting bolts. Carefully remove the rocker arm cover from the cylinder head. Remove the gasket cover. Using the screwdriver, gently nudge the gasket to remove it from the seating area.

Using the automotive cleaner, remove any particles, oil or other remnants that were left by the old gasket. Place the new gasket in the gasket seating area. Using the torque wrench, tighten the rocker arm cover fasteners. Reverse the steps used to remove the parts

Complete the maintenance by adding oil to the car and allowing it to run idle for 10 to 15 minutes.

Why would there be oil in the holes where you can get to the spark plugs?


this means the valve cover needs replacing, when replacing the gasket make sure you replace the sparkplug tube seals this is whats bad on your, also make sure you clean the oil out of the holes and clean it of sparkplug wire also. you can use brake cleaner and then blow it dry with air.

Added 3 quarts of oil now white smoke is coming from exhaust


you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.

one of these or both can leak, if tube is tight in head it may not be leaking the top seal is

Excel 1.3 looks like it´s burning oil.-


first of all change spark plugs to the standards of the car ,, maybe you have bad spark plugs .. does your car have a white smoke in exhaust ? if so then its something has to be replaced inside 2 and 3 cyclinders thats an advanced failure
if you have no smoke in exhaust check top oil gasket .. when did you change it ?

02 ZX2 runnig poor after spark plug replacement


Solution seems a little miraculous (although I believe in miracles).
I ohmed out each sparkplug wire finding them all good.
I wiped off the little debry that had collected around each seal of both the sparkplug and distributor ends (remember, I keep this engine clean and there was no noticable fluids or dirt before or during this problem).
I then replaced the same plug wires and viola, all is good!

My only thought is that maybe when putting the plug caps down in the sparkplug wells that maybe one or more found their way beside a plug inside of over and on the plug, but I did not take any wires off to verify this.
