Soak it first with WD-40, let sit, try to get a matching socket which just does not fit with extension and you can hammer over the rounded of spark plug I would try, otherwise the head has to come off!

CS-452VL leaking bar oil into combustion chamber?

taking that the equipment is a chain saw (cs-452vl means nothing) from the bar oil statement, the only possible connection between the bar oil container and the combustion chamber is by way of a vent tube to the inlet manifold or air filter
possible fixes
clean out the passage under the bar and chain that is blocked by the saw dust residue
drain the oil out after use

Does anyone know the spark plug wire order on a d15b7

Oil is leaking into your spark plug holes from the valve chamber. It's not a good idea to leave the oil in the spark plug holes, as it can pool high enough to damage the rubber boots of your spark plug wires, will make the plug hole really messy, and it may eventually become a fire hazard. Below is how to fix it.

Honda's preferred spark plug location means that the plugs (and their wires) must pass through deep recesses in the top of the valve covers to get to the combustion chamber. This gives better plug placement in the combustion chamber, and more zoom for your Honda. It creates a small problem though: Under the valve cover, all around the spark plug recesses, is an open space that is constantly being showered with oil, and that oil will get into the spark plug recesses unless something is done to keep it out. Honda does this by sealing any joins between parts with little rubber donuts (AKA "grommets").

The rubber donuts eventually get old and stop sealing, letting oil seep into the spark plug holes and puddle there. The cure is replacement of all four (or six), along with the valve cover gasket itself (themselves) at the same time. It's an easy project for anyone who's done more than just oil changes.

However, there's a fly in the ointment here: Certain Honda engines, specifically the 4-valve-per-cylinder, single-overhead-cam ones (such as the D15B that's used in many Civics), have an additional rubber seal under the one I just mentioned! This one also gets old and starts leaking, but these are a LOT harder to replace! Not a job for a beginner!

NOTE: The rubber parts under discussion here are not actually red and orange, they're black, I just used colors to make it clearer which was what.

A spark plug is a device for delivering electric current from an ignition system to the combustion chamber of a spark-ignition engine to ignite the compressed fuel/air mixture by an electric spark, while containing combustion pressure within the engine.

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 code p1128 and p1129

The prevalent cause is the fouling of the O2 sensors in the exhaust pipe and the catalytic convertor(s). This usually caused by the fuel not burning correctly in the combustion chamber. And this can be caused by: bad/no spark in combustion chamber due to weak plugs or electrical going plug coil packs; partially plugged fuel injectors and result being too much un aspirated fuel entering the combustion chamber; bad or old fuel, improper fuel octane for engine.

Suggest you fuel up asap with PREMIUM fuel (for 1 tank) and 1 can super concentrated injector cleaner for next 2 tanks. Check air filter clean. Check air intact air analyser sensor wire is clean, pull the plugs and check condition and gap, replace them if fouled or worn.

I drove my kia optima in a deep puddle and now it won't start it makes one clicking sound and nothing happens the starter is good but water did get into the intake and water did get past the butter fly...

Did you crank the engine with the spark plugs out in order to discharge any water that may be trapped in the combustion chambers? Water cannot be compressed. Hope you didn't hydrolock it.

I have oil on my spark plugs I need to know what to look for?

A spark plug shorted by excessive oil entering the combustion chamber is shown below. This is often caused by piston rings or cylinder walls that are badly worn. Oil may also be pulled into the chamber because of excessive clearance in the valve stem guides, or badly worn valve stem seals.

If the PCV valve is plugged or inoperative, it can cause a buildup of crankcase pressure. This condition can force oil and oil vapors past the rings and valve guides into the combustion chamber.

Where are the spark plugs located and how do i check them on a 2001 gmc jimmy 2wd

Before checking the spark plugs, ask yourself these questions. 1. Are your dash lights working when your turn the key. 2. Is your car making any noises when your turn the key. 3. Is there anything obvious that my keep your car from starting, you may be amazed what you find. Your spark plugs are located in the combustion chamber on the inside of your engine. You may also know them as cylinders. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

this sounds like the engine could have some bad valve guide seals allowing oil to be pumped into the combustion chamber of the engine, or you could have some broken pistion rings in the cylinders, i would get the vehichle checked out soon for this problem.

Explain induction comoression related to the spark ignition

Air & fuel enter the combustion chamber
The spark plug is ignited causing an explosion when the piston rises causing pressure

Losing oil from Ford Focus 1.6 (1999)
