Type of liquid matters, if radiator water: usually this is other then a headgasket. Intake manifold crack or gasket is more likely. If oil: head is most likely seriously damaged. Was anything worked on recently? Did engine overheat? Could anything have been poured/splashed into throttle body or engine submerged?

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.

I have just water coming out of the tailpipe and it will keep dying once it warms up?


You most likely have a really clogged CAT or a blown headgasket.. being the fact it runs ok till it's warmed up(fluids thin when warm), I would lean more towards the headgasket.. check your spark plugs for any oil or fluid on the spark end to determine which headgasket is blown.

What does it mean if I have oil on spark plugs on a 1997 Toyota Tacoma 4 cylinder?


It could be a worn valve seal or even worn piston ring allowing oil to enter the combustion chamber from the sump. Check if your exhaust is blowing smoke when engine is warm.

2005 Toyota Camry 115k miles has white smoke coming from engine. What could this be and around how much to repair it.


White smoke usually indicates coolant is getting into the combustion chamber, meaning that it most likely has a blown headgasket, or gaskets, if it's a V-6. The cost varies depending on your location, who does the repair, whether it's a V-6 or 4 cylinder. Ball park figure for a 4cylinder headgasket replacement would run somewhere between $800-$1200 ad an additional
$500 if it's a V-6.

Excessive carbon on spark plugs which causes to fail


carbon on sparkplugs are caused by oil in the combustion chamber.

here are some things to do:
1. replace the sparkplug
2. replace your head gasket
3. check if your ignition timing is correct (timing in the distributor, camshaft, and crankshaft)

if these does not solve your problem, try this:
1. have your cylinder head checked for leaks/cracks
2. replace your piston rings

lastly, if all of these dont work, this is the solution (but quite pricey)
1. have your head rebored. reboring the cylinder head means making your combustion chamber wider so cracks/leaks on the wall will be removed.
2. after rebore.. you have 2 options: resleeve or replace piston rings. Resleeve means inserting sleeves in the bored chamber to replace the removed part. replacing pistong rings is also an alternative since your old one will not fit anymore ot the rebored head.

How do i remove valve cover on toyota Rev 4


The bolts for the valve cover are atop the spark plug chambers. Locate all 4 spark plug wires, remove them and you will notice large bolts around the top part of the spark plug chamber. You may use an adjustable wrench to loosen. It is very easy and takes about 15mins to perform.

Blew a headgasket,,, had all new gaskets put on car,,, when all back together, it won't hold antifreeze but car does not overheat,, runs to a point and then blows the antifreeze out,,, i'm thinking they...


Sounds like a good diagnosis. You can remove the spark plugs and see if there is coolant in the combustion chambers. A compression check would also narrow things down. The coolant reservoir would have a smell of gas or oil. I hope there is no water in the oil. Regards, Don
