Do the green key keep flashing or just when you try to start


Pull a spark plug, ground it to the metal engine somewhere, keep it plugged into the spark plug wire. disconnect the other spark plug wires so it doesn't start. Turn the car over (try to start it) and see if the one spark plug fires. Do not touch it or hold it while trying this. They use about 30,000 volts. You just confirmed one of the 3 requirements for starting: fuel, compression and spark. If you smell fuel anywhere but the exhaust, don't try this as the spark from the spark plug can ignite fuel or fumes in the engine compartment. If your spark plug fired ok, check to make sure the timing belt did not break. Sometimes you can pry the plastic cover open a bit over the cam gears, or sometimes there is an inspection hole, or you can look into your oil fill hole to see if the cam is turning (as the timing belt turns the cams). I modify everything I have to make it more user friendly. Nothing is perfect but faith and even that can be improved.

Do you have oil puddling in the plug hole or do you have oil blowing out a spark plug hole?

I have a 2003 vw passat 2.8L while changing the spark plugs I noticed oil in the spark plug holes. After gapping and installing the new plugs I drove the car about 20 mile and the check engine light...


Unfortunately the check engine light could be caused by hundreds of things and yet it could have something to do with your changing of the plugs. Do me a favor and take the car to your local auto parts store and they will check the code for the engine light for you for free. Bring that code back here and I will help you figure out what is causing the light and the slugish engine. Sorry for your problem but I'm sure I can help you get it fixed. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sounds like misfire. Change spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor , fuel and air filters. Check for oil in spark plug holes. if oil found change valve cover gasket spark plug orings. they can leak oil into spark plug holes and cause misfire.

Pull the spark plug wires out one by one and check for oil on wire. Sometimes the valve cover spark plug hole gaskets leak oil into the spark plug hole and causes a misfire. If oil found clean with brake or carb cleaner and blow out with compressed air. also when car runs bad listen under hood for snapping noise this would be spark escaping to ground somewere. In a dark garage you might be able to see the spark.

Oil seeping in into spark plug chamber


Replace your valve cover gasket set. What's happening is the seals that are at the spark plug holes are worn out causing oil to build up in the spark plug hole.
