This is not normal.Oil in the cylinder is an indication of worn valve guides or piston rings.To pin point the exact problem get a cylinder leakage test.It'll tell you where the oil is coming from.

Motor oil in the combustion chambers[where the spark plugs are] is NOT NORMAL it is evidence of failure of valve seals and/or worn piston rings,requiring major motor repair.try to return it & get your money back,or at least a credit towards repair.

I hv a Honda accord 94. It was running great but yesterday it start creating problem. Wen I try to push gas pedal it start missing n rpm needle goes upto 5000. I thought it could be coz of spark plugs so...


Hi,
Looks like some engine oil goes into the cylinder and contaminate your spark plug, thus making your plugs miss.
Look where that oil damp spark plug located at cylinder number, in that cylinder the valve seal is to be replace immediately. Valve seal is located on top of the engine that seals the intake/exhaust valve and valve guide, from oil going in the cylinder.
You could ask your mechanic to do the job, it is a bit hard to replace it. the parts needed coat just under $5.
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Topping up gearbox oil on 99 Hyundai Lantra (manual)


You can actually do it from the top if it is similar to a 2001 Elantra??? On your right center of the tranny, there should be two big bolts I believe a 17mm one on the bottom left the other top right of the other. The bottom left is the drain plug the top right is where you fill it. If you want to make things easier you can remove the air cleaner and the air cleaner housing then unscrew the sensor on top of the tranny you can poor it in from the top. You will need to then unscrew the fill hole (Top right bolt) Pour the lube in to the hole where you had taken out the sensor until it pours out of the fill hole. Sounds like more work but by doing this you will avoid making a mess trying to fit the squeeze bottle into the tiny hole. Hope this makes Sense????
