Well, if it is cracked, is it leaking, if so repace it. Remove all old gasket material, without damaging the parts.....

Coolant and oil leak


have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

Milky oil dipstick, white exhaust smoke, coolant in spark plugs


*White milky oil on dipstick = coolant in oil.
*Coolant on sparkplugs = cracked head or blown head gasket
*White smoke = burning excessive oil in the cylinders, which can be caused by a number of things including valve seals, cracked head or blown head gasket.
***All three of these symptoms together, however, means its the head or head gasket. Both are costly but better the head gasket than the entire head.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It's definitely a damaged head gasket. If the head gasket is damaged you'll have an oil and water mixture that's milky in appearance. You will need to have it replaced and be sure that you check if the head itself has cracks. If it has, a machine shop will be helpful.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I pulled a spark plug to change plugs and the spark plug wire boot was all wet from oil. The other three plugs were fine. The rest of the engine looked fine apart from the regular dirty engine look. No oil...


yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Changed spark plugs and one old one covered with oil. What is the problem?


If you notice smoke when you first start the engine, it may be that the rings are worn,or the valve guides in the heads are worn, and the valve seals may have failed. Also the oil may be cavitating in the valve covers, and not running down to the pan, as the engine is running.The oil drain holes may be plugged up from sludge! And the pcv valve may be plugged! Verry high mileage,not enough oil changes?

Small block chevy 327 - water in oil. Car hadn't run in 15 years, started it, found oil discolored and foamy. Changed oil, added coolant, restarted. Hard to start didnt want to crank over, smoked blue,...


take out all the spark plugs and put a radiator pressre tester on the radiator and pressurize the system, then inspect each spark plug hole for coolant. you will find out what cylinder or head will need service. How did this car run before sitting? Blue smoke is not good, although it doesnt sound like you have run it long enough to verify any real cyl problems. if its smoking it may be overhaul time. and the complete engin ewill need disassembly.

My 1996 honda accord hestites when I give it gas at the lights, I removed the spark plug wire and noticed oil on the end of my wires, as well as a crack, would this be the reason for the rough drive?


The oil at the spark plug end of your wire is caused by O ring gasket seals that can be bought in a kit for about 20 bucks-valve cover gasket replacement kit. When you remove the valve cover, you will see one for each spark plug hole. They may be melted to the valve cover and need picked off with small screwdriver. After this remove spark plugs to get rid of residual oil. This may be shorting the spark to the engine instead of letting it go through the plug since electricity always looks for the path of least resistance(conductor).

Motor Oil in with spark plugs, backfiring and stalling.


hey i actually just dealt with this problem last week ona friends car. the oil in the center with the spark plugs is because you need a new valve gasket. not a cover unless its cracked just the gasket and it costs about 25 dollars at your local parts store. its very easy to install and a quick fix but try to get all the oil out of the center as you can and rub a little bit of old oil on the gasket before you install it. it helps stop dry rot. try this first and then see if the backfiring and stalling stops. if not, you may need to change your spark plugs again even if you already have because chances are the oil thats already in the hole has burned up the spark plug. so give your spark plugs a good check while you change your valve gasket.
