I don't think I've ever seen that happen. But if there was enough pressure or explosion to blow out a spark plug, assuming it was tight. then there is probably internal damage, perhaps to the rings. Have a compression test done on that cylinder and check the spark plug for oil fouling.

1992 es300 blue smoke from exhaust


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. So best bet is to have a local repair shop inspect for internal oil leakage.

Can oil in spark plug hole after changing coil packs,plugs and wires cause 1999 Sportage to run worse than before? Engine is "dieseling" and blew white smoke for a minute or two. Changed valve...


The oil down the plug hole will cause the white smoke, and as you said it cleared in a couple of minutes, but also may have oil fowled the new plug. It cannot have damaged the engine.
pull the oily plug out and clean it in some solvent and try again, make sure the plug caps dont have oil on them

2001 Ford Expedition Blew Spark Plug, fixed that now won't shift.


On the trans you have a shifting module that might need replace just make sure that the shifting lever is aline with the mark on the shifting module.(Drivers side)
As far as the plug goes you can so thread lock tight to keep it in.

350 chevy Lost compression and engine began to smoke.


pull out your spark plugs and try cranking the motor again, see if you're spitting out coolant from the plug holes. I'm asking you to do this, cuz it sounds like you blew a head gasket.

Lost engine oil: 2002 Ford F150 Supercrew 4x4 5.4l engine


This is certainly one of the strangest things I have ever heard as a mechanic. . This almost sounds like some one is playing a game of letting your oil out this vehicle. With no visible leaks no burning smell of oil. However I would recommend that you check the coolant in the radiator and see if the oil is in the coolant. (If they are mixing together) If they are mixing the coolant should have a milky look to it, creamish white. If its good then the only other logical explanation is that the vehicle i s burning alot of oil, but if that was true you would see a grayish blue smoke from tail pipe. If you are 100% sure they are no oil leaks on this vehicle, then this problem is surely strange. Check coolant and get back to me. Good Luck
