1998 dodge dakota 1998 bad oil leak losing 5 quarts in a month . the oil is on alternator and all over cant find leak any suggestions where to look


Try cleaning the engine with degreaser and hose off the oil and muck. Let the engine dry out and then start the engine and look where the oil is leaking from.
From your description, the oil could be leaking from the tappet cover. May need a new gasket or the tappet cover bolts needs tightening.

When I removed #4 sparkplug there is oil on sparkplug hole on a 2000 Kia sportage


If oil is on the spark plug tip then it could be from worn valve stems or from worn piston rings. When you accelerate away from the traffic lights and the engine blows a lot of greyish smoke then this is a sign of worn parts.
If the oil is leaking into the spark plug hole, then it could be leaking from the tappet cover, either the tappet cover bolts are loose or the tappet cover gasket is faulty.

How do you replace spark plug seals on 1995 Isuzu 3.2?


the metal seal under the spark plug should never be replaced, just replace plugs if leaking (rare) , but if oil is leaking into the 'plug tube' then tappet cover gaskets will need replacment.
