Also check your timing. if your belt is bad or if you changed your belt recently, you may have to change the timing tensioner and idler. I have had that problem and am trying to get it fixed now.

The oil in the sparkplug hole indicates a leaking valve cover gasket. That may or may not be the cause of the problems you've got (doubt that it is), but it's still something that needs to be changed.

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. Yesterday I started it with no problem to go somewhere.. a mile up the road it just stopped running. I had full power as far as electrical, (lights, radio, etc.) But I't...

If it utterly stopped working instantly, maybe the timing belt popped. If so, galants are interferance engines and itll need to be replaced because a piston would have rammed some valves. If it sputtered and just sounded like it kind of choked, might want to see if the fuel pump died

My 2001 Mazda Tribute sputters when in gear (R, or D), and when accelerating whilst taking off, I really have to put my foot down for the vehicle to move... also when drive along at a high speed, and its...

Could be ignition coils failing or injectors. Don't know the mileage on your car, but could be worn out engine too. Change your oil often?

1997 honda acccord check engine light will come on and starts sputter real bad

This sounds like bad sparkplug wires, pull wires off the plugs and see if oil is on wires, this is common on these cars the valve cover gasket goes bad and oil leaks into sparkplug holes and then it misfires, if theres oil in holes replace the wires and the valve cover gasket with the tube seals,

Oil light is blinking on 2001 daewoo nubira only when at a stop.

Hi. there could be three issues here. One could be that you need to change the oil in the engine. Secondly, the oil pump itself may be malfunctioning. Also, the oil sending unit(module) may be malfunctioning as well. A good starting point would be to check the oil to see if its low or needs changing.

please rate and god bless.

Sounds like misfire. Change spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor , fuel and air filters. Check for oil in spark plug holes. if oil found change valve cover gasket spark plug orings. they can leak oil into spark plug holes and cause misfire.

My 2001 daewoo lanos won't shift out of 1st gear

If you have an auto, you could have low fluid level, or your fluid and filter need to be changed. If a manual, maybe a shift linkage problem.
