Question about Cars & Trucks
From my experiance anything that's mixed with oil will change the colour of in some way, keep N eye on your oil for the next few drives just to make sure there's no change in oil colour. If it's not blowing smoke and oil colour stays the same, just put high octane fuel in to clean out the system. Hope this helps.

You need to have your engine flushed and cleaned out. One or more of your spark plugs aint firing. You need to replace them all to include the wires as well. If you dont get your engine flushed, you could blow your engine up.

SOURCE: wont start
First things first.You need to find out if its getting spark and fuel.You can find out if its getting spark by taking any plug wire off and holding it just above the plug.have someone else try to start the car.if you see spark then you have it.for fuel look on the fuel rail.that is located on the top of the motor.its metal. look for something resembling a valve stem on it.push in the schrader valve and have someone turn the key off and on if fuel comes out you have fuel

My 98 Cherokee was the exact same. I used to have to turn the key back and forth 3 times and then it would start. Otherwise it would just crank and crank for a while and then start. Pretty embarrassing! Took it to the dealer and they said that my fuel pump was losing pressure. I changed the fuel pump and I don't have to prime the pump anymore.

You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.
Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
