My 02 galant runs rough when put in gear but in idle runs okay it also surges up and down replaced the plug wires

Okay, lets start with the oil you found on spark plugs when you were replacing them. this oil is coming from the valve cover tube hole area, notice the plugs go into the holes in the valve cover, there is a gasket the goes around the top of the tubes and when it leaks it goes into spark plug hole, the valve cover needs replacing .
this will cause rough idle and running problems, after replacing valve cover gasket the holes must be cleaned, using crab cleaner, spray into holes and use air to blow out . this may need to be done a few times to get oil out .
after oil is removed . then remove spark plugs and wipe them clean.
The next step is to find the air (vacuum leak) , you said you hear it around intake tube. check for cracks or broken vacuum line. this leak will cause idle problems and driving problems,

How to fix a stripped oil pan

The easiest way is to find a larger diameter plug and re-tap the hole to fit it. This will require drilling out the hole to the correct tapping diameter and use a tap that matches the new plug to re-tap the hole. Or if you have or know someone with thread inserts that match your original plug, you could drill and re-tap the hole for the thread insert.

I have a 1999 Sebring 2.5L and started the process of changing my spark plugs. As I removed the front plug wires, they all had oil dripping off of the plug wire and as I looked in the hole the wire came...

I am not a car mechanic by career, but I have built high performance engines for racing. There should be no oil leak. If you get oil on to electrical wires this is bad, because the oil can soften and damage the insulation characteristics of electrical wire, other types of surfaces, and many types of hoses. Find and correct any oil leaks, replace the wires, and make sure all other wires and hoses are clean from any oil residue or drippings.

2006 chevy aveo. the dipstick reads oil is full. but there is oil in the spark plug holes.did the mechanic overfill last oil change. that was 4000kms ago. dipstick still reads full oil

You have oil in the plug holes because the seals that are supposed to keep oil out are leaking-you need to remove the valve cover to replace them.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil

i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

I have an oil leak coming from a plug not a spark plug on the passenger side near the oil filer.

Look at the plug to see if it has a square hole in it,or allen,if so,it is just a oil galley,remove it,and clean the oil off the plug,and the hole,then use teflon tape,or liquid around the plug,and reinstal the plug.

Hilux leaking gear oil

There is a plug on the side of the gear box. Pull plug out. You should be able to stick your finger into the hole and touch the gear oil. If not, check on your owner manual and see what type of oil goes back into the gear box. Fill it up until it start coming out of the plug hole.put plug back in, & back to riding.

Are when you go to the oil change shop???? Get them to show you where it is at, and get them to top it off for you.???
