Oil residue on plugs is never a good thing, usually indicating excessive ring wear or other major internal problem (read:expensive) But, first, check that any engine venting system (pcv, cover vent etc) is clear and not building crankcase pressure, then check compression or cylinder leakdown test. Also make sure that you do not have a problem in the fuel system that you are mistaking for oil on plugs.

2001 ford escape 3.0 engine no power in cylinders 4,5,and 6


wonder if it brings a check engine light on? check your coil packs spark plugs/wires - could be a bad injector - could be a vacuum leak - could be an intake leak causing anifreeze to be introduced into the combustion chamber - same with the head gasket could be blown causing the same effect as an intake gasket most of the time if you check your spark plug they will tell you everything like oil on them would be black and oily if its been introduced to water/anifreeze could show signs

The small clips break on these Ford Ka roller glove boxes and the are only available from ford .
The old one can be taken out with a pliers.
The new part will simply slot into the small rectangulay hole and just clicks into place to fit.
Sometimes the get dislodged and stay attached to the small locking point on the lid.

My ford ka has started to judder


It is probably ignition failure. Hard to diagnose with out witnessing it. I wud replace the wires to the spark plugs and the spark plugs themselves. If you take it to a service shop they will probably do that first and charge you more.

No,4 plug not fireing changed plug wires.new coil.plug ran good for 100 miles then 4 stop again


You would need to figure out if it is a problem inside the cylinder or with something like the crank-cam sensor firing the coil. I would change the plug again to see if it works for a few days.
Could be a problem with the fuel injector or a vac leak if the plug is firing but no power from that cylinder.

My car exhaust smokes what is the cause


usually this happens due to engine wear off
with the engine cool- open spark plugs one by one and inspect if the plugs are black or oily.it meand that the ring piston is worn.are you sure that you car does not miss ? in that case if you find any one plug oily then try to replace it with new one. usually missing plugs does not fire oil seeps in and when it ignites a few time or when the engine is hot it gives smoke. but that is once a blue moon.

Engine cranks but will not start. i have new fuel filter installed new plugs installed .i have fuel pressure at fuel rail ,i have spark at plugs and the injectors all read 11 to 14 ohms resistance per shop...


If you've got spark and fuel, it should fire up. Crank the engine for about 20 to 30 seconds then immediately pull one spark plug. if your getting fuel, it should be wet with gasoline. No wet,no gas. But then again, the code says rich mixture. Doesn't add up. Check all the connections at the mass airflow sensor and the crankshaft and camshaft sensors.

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.
