Replace the valve cover gasket, and make sure that it comes with the spark plug tube seals. probably replace the plugs if they need it, and the plug wires should be replaced if they've gotten very much oil on them since the oil degrades their ability to insulate, and the plugs will start arcing up the sides and engine will start misfiring.

Check the seals around the inside of the spark plug chambers, where the valve cover meets, could be seaping in from there

SOURCE: thick blue smoke. no oil

Hi! Chris, There are many causes of oil burning or exhaust smoke. There are three different causes of normal oil burning, 1; worn valve guides (smoking during deceleration), 2; worn cylinders and piston rings (smoking during acceleration), 3; split or worn out valve seal, or damaged intake manifold gasket (smoking all the time). Of course there are several variables in this equation. Sometimes coolant can also get into a cylinder and cause a blueish smoke. If you remove the spark plugs and use a pressure pump on the coolant system (radiator), coolant should leak into the intake manifold or cylinder. Coolant leaking into the intake manifold will leak into several cylinder through the valves. So, what year and how many miles are on the Jaguar?

SOURCE: SMOKES COMES OUT, SPARK PLUGS GETS OIL

It sounds as if the valve guides or seals are bad or more likely the rings are worn out and need to be replaced.

I'm having rough idle and smoke all of a sudden with my golf mk4 The oil warning lights up in dash. Oil level ok. Spark plugs not burning well. Replace spark plugs, changed oil filter, changed


Smoke is not a good sign. Running rough is not a good sign. Oil light not a good sign. You could have a combination of bad things, most likely expensive. Suggest professional help. Smoke can be bad rings or holed piston. Low oil pressure can be bad bearing or oil pump.

Why does vvti engine SMOKING HEAVILY 135000kms .1.6 verso. is this common?


if its black smoke then its a fuel problem too much fuel the car can`t burn it . could be fuel injector over fueling. if its white smoke then its burning coolant, there is a head gasket problem that is damaged in the cyl #3 area. it could also be a bad valve guide/valve seal, oil rings, compression rings. you don`t say what colour the smoke is.

Ford laser 99 no power


Hi there.
well when you throttle up to about 2000rpm do you get blue smoke coming out the exhaust.When driving on flat road will it power up as normal with out missing or getting hot.
what colour was the old spark plugs were they black or light brown.
When you start engine and run for 3 minutes then let it idle and remove oil filler cap do you get smoke coming out.
Number 1 if yes then engine is lacking power due to piston rings worn answer rebuild engine.
Number2 spark plugs brown [good] if black soot as num1.
Number 3 if you get black smoke or blue ,then the engine is lacking compression could be your problem as num1
OTHER WISE GET YOUR TIMING CHECKED AND SET TO BOOK.

Car running great with no warning sparkplugs oiled up now not running


What kind of car and engine,Debbie? The valve covers fail on some engines and flood the recessed holes where the spark plugs are situated.
But if they say you need a compression test BECAUSE the spark plugs are oily when removed,they might be right.

If this IS the case,the engine must surely show blue smoke out the exhaust.If it's NOT smoking,and the crankcase isn't overfilled with oil,then add a can of `SEA-FOAM engine oil treatment to it and run it a coupla' hundred miles. THEN do your compression check with the engine cold and NOT running while you hold the throttle wide open as you crank the engine.
Sea-Foam may free the sticky rings and lifters and bring up your compression good enough to buy new plugs and wiring and change out the old oil.
That's what I'd do anyway. don-ohio (:^)

Can oil in spark plug hole after changing coil packs,plugs and wires cause 1999 Sportage to run worse than before? Engine is "dieseling" and blew white smoke for a minute or two. Changed valve...


The oil down the plug hole will cause the white smoke, and as you said it cleared in a couple of minutes, but also may have oil fowled the new plug. It cannot have damaged the engine.
pull the oily plug out and clean it in some solvent and try again, make sure the plug caps dont have oil on them

If the oil on my 2006 chevy aveo was overfilled and leaked into the spark plugs. can i just clean up the holes and start the car. will smoke come out the tail pipe.


i use brake cleaner or even a electronic parts cleaner to clean leaking oil out of spark plug holes and off the plug wires as well and when your done start the motor and run it till it stops smoking the you will be fine.

Oil in spark plugs


Oil on a spark plug might be as simple as a bad valve cover gasket. If it is not smoking bad from the exhaust then it may not be that big of a problem. Is there oil just on the threads or is it on the entire tip of the spark plug. check the smoke and let me know from there. Thanks, Midwest-tek

Floods out 5 times out of 10 when trying to start car. Have to wait an hr. before trying to start again..Also a lose of power when going up a hill. Blue smoke comes out the exhaust. Also It won't change...


Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles. How did the engine oil get inside the cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Engine smokes


There are only two things that cause smoke, one is oil,the other is coolant, coolant has a really nauseating smell, most likely the oil is your smoke, it is caused by worn valve guides and or leaking valve stem seals, if it doesn't use more than a quart every 1000 miles I would not worry about it, how many miles on the car?
