This is not good. How many miles per quart are you consuming? You can step up a range or two in hotness of the plugs.

Why would I get a big chunk of carbon buildup on the sparkplugs with only 7000 miles on them and only on 3 of 6 of them. It's whitish beige in color and a quarter inch of buildup.


That would be indication of weak spark (plug wires) you can test them if you have an ohm meter - anything over 8k ohms per foot - toss them. I would start there.

I can't find the location of the spark plugs on my 1997 Isuzu Rodeo LS with a V6 3.2L engine


They are underneath the coil that each cylinder has-you'll see 6 "coils"-three to side-on top of each valve cover. Remove the wire connector from the coil-remove two screws holding each coil to valve cover-carefully pull coil up away from valve cover. If it is stuck-slightly rotate coil back and forth to break it's hold on the spark plug. Use sparkplug socket and long extension to reach sparkplug down inside of valve cover. Driver's side of engine you will find one sparkplug difficult to get because of interference from brake system components. Use TWO short extensions coupled together to reach plug-when it becomes unscrewed from cyl head-lift it up-pull off one extension to clear obstruction-then pull the plug out from valve cover. (I bet you'll see some oil inside the hole where sparkplug was-(sparkplug may be wet with oil-there are seals that keep oil from leaking out of vavle cover). I DID NOT bother to replace the seals-my Rodeo is running just fine with 317,000 miles on her.

We changed the oil and then it was running fine. Well then after we turned it off and tried cranking it again it wouldn't start? There is oil all over the sparkplugs so we know there is an oil leak just...


you need to replace the sparkplug rubber gasket you will see it when you remove the valve covers w/c were the sparkplugs go through you will need 4 rubber gaskets only dealer will have it and make sure you tighten the valve covers properly after changing or else it will leak again

Added 3 quarts of oil now white smoke is coming from exhaust


you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.

Do you mean you need a diagram for the spark plug wires? The firing order of the engine is usually molded into the factory intake manifold, and most distributor caps have the #1 cylinder location marked on it. For a more detailed look at it, try to find a repair manual for your truck.

I have oil in the sparkplugs


You may need new oil rings on your pistons. Have you checked your compression? Have you checked for any gasket leaks? How new is your plugs? You may also want to try a synthetic oil or 10w 30 instead of 5W.
