First, check your dipstick and make sure you are not overfilled. Too much oil will cause these problems. If there is too much oil, do an oil and filter change and see if it helped.

Your engine should be missing. Replace the oil soaked plug and see if it helps. It will foul out shortly if there is a more serious problem. You should have a compression test to determine the next step.

If the problem was not too much oil, you may need valve seals or a head gasket or new rings for the bad cylinder. There is only a slim chance that tightening the head bolts will eliminate the problem. Get the compression test done at a reliable Repair shop.

Changed oil in bmw e36 now spark plug socket and spark plug are showing engine oil (old) Shop gave me wrong oil filter so have not started car yet as I do not have the right filter Also I changed air

IF there is a sleeve around the spark plugs then when replacing the plugs replace the seal under that sleave as well or rocker cover oil will leak out past the plug base.. If you want the correct oil filter you may have to buy genuine . Run fault codes to find the reason for rough idle . It may be a vacuum hose is off or cracked or loose.

Adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

you might have a blown head casket try due a pressure test on each cylinder and sometimes you can take a spark plug out 1 by 1 and just tap the ket so it cranks and see if water comes out of the cylinder
