Oil leaking on spark plug


If the spark plug is oil fouled, you either have leaking valve seals, or bad piston rings. Bad rings would be accompanied by excessive blow-by. With the engine running, remove your oil filler cap. If there is air pulsing out of the filler tube, it your rings. If not, it is your valve seals.

2007 ford explorer sport trac 4.0 v6 all 3 spark plugs on passenger side are coated in oil doesn't smoke 2nd set of plugs in 3 months driver side plugs are fine im tired of guessing anyone know?


comment exactly what you mean when you say --covered in oil
1-- is they covered in oil on the outside around the insulator and wires/ coils
2-- are the center electrodes black with oil and misfiring
if it the outside then replace the rocker cover gasket or if the plugs are recessed into the rocker cover , replace the oil seal under the plug tube in the rocker cover

My spark plugs are getting oil on them 2001 oldsmobile aurora v 8


Very possible that the rings to the cylinders are worn or even broken on the cylinders if plugs have the oil on the firing tips. If the oil is on the OUTSIDE of the plugs, the ceramic part, then you have oil leaking from the gasket around the head covers. The 1st problem requires replacing the rings. The second problem only requires tightening the head covers, and if THAT doesn't work, replacing the gasket/s between the head cover/s and the head/s. Don't tighten the head covers down too hard, so that it damages the gasket material.

Is there supposed to be oil in with the spark plugs


No this is not mormal. I am assuming you are saying there is oil on the outside of the spark plug and not on the electrode when you removed it. If you have oil on the outside of the plug your valve cover gasket is leaking. Try tightening the valve cover down ever so slightly. DO NOT over-tighten. If that does not work then the gasket will need to be replaced. Unless it is leaking lots of oil, you may just want to live with it as it is expensive to pay someone to replace the valve cover gaskets.

Ok, so I'm not an auto machanic, I've got a 1995 Honda Accord with a 2.2l 16 valve engine, the problem: went to change out the spark plugs, the rubber boots were covered on the outside with oil. I...


I'm no mechanic either, but... the oil is not coming from the plugs. Probably running down from the valve cover gasket. You were right not to remove plugs with that gunk in there.You could try to soak the oil out with a bit of old towel. Is there any oil on the head under the valve cover? Have you been adding a lot of oil? Of course just a little oil goes a long way when leaking. New valve cover gasket should fix it.

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


Your valve cover gasket is leaking, allowing oil to get into the spark plug holes. You'll need to replace the valve cover gasket.

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 in a spark plug chamber how do is fix it


depends where the oil came from.of it has leaked down from a valve cover gasket,that is not hard to fix.if it a leaking valve seal that is expensive and if the head gasket is leaking,expensive.look at the outside edge of the valve cover,and check the edge for oil.if there is alot of oil,by the time the plug is unscrewed oil can go inside.the oil would burn off,so if there is oil inside it is dripping down probably from a valve seal.take off the valve cover and inspect the seals they are probably no good.there are 2 seal sets,one is in the valve cover,and that results in oil on the outside of the plug,and the actual valve seal which results in oil in the inside of the engine.

Oil in spark plugs


you mean oil under plug wires? your plugs are in the center of the valve cover? if so, you have a vlave cover leak, the oil will rise and short out the plugs so they will not fire. remove the oil from around the plugs, then replace the valve cover gasket and plugs, try to start again
