If the spark plug is not sealing well it will develop liquid carbon that looks very much like oil, otherwise you have a oil leak most likely valve cover

What causes engine oil to leak into spark plugs holes?



  • Your spark plug tubes are leaking. The spark plug tubes are set in the valve cover, where the plugs set. It's an easy fix, I recommend a set of spark plug tubes that come with a valve cover gasket. Pull the valve cover and swap the gasket and spark plug tubes, problem solved. Take you maybe 30 minutes to finish the job. I recommend at least replacing the plug that was getting oil all over it. At least wipe it down real well and let it dry good. Common problem, easy fix.


  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

1988 toyota camry 2.0 turns over but won't start. Car has been driving like a champ and one morning wouldn't start. Turns over fine but won't fire. Tested for spark by removing spark plugs...


Fuel pressure at idle is normally 30-35psi. Start by taking the gas cap off, and putting it back on. That will De-pressurize the fuel system. Also, make sure you have gas in the car. I have seen gauges on these cars read wrong. I hope this helps.

My toyota camry will not pick speed especially when it climbing a hill


this could be caused by an ignition problem, wrong parts, or a timing problem.
try using ngk or denso(ngk recommended) spark plugs, ngk spark plug wires, and if needed new coils. ngk and denso are the factory recommended parts for the model, i have a 98 camry lewith a 2.2.
also if it is low mileage, below 200k or doesnt leak oil, try castrol syntec 5w 30 oil and a k&n air filter

1994 camry, won't start. Engine turns over freely, good spark on new plugs, Injectors switching ( tested with light bulb) plugs wet with petrol, checked timing belt, but ok and timing marks line up?


if you have spark and fuel and it is on time it should run if the compression is high enough was this car flooded really bad if so make sure your oil is OK the do a compression check dry and wet you may find when you you do your wet test that it brings the compression up enough to git the car started that would mean that your cylinders were washed out with gas causing the compression to go down

No spark, 1988 Toyota Camry 3SFE 4cyl, 5 speed.


there is no crank sensor on this vehicles 2.0L. If you have power to the coil, new coil, cap and rotor try this if not done yet>>>Unplug coil power first....Try pulling off the distributor cap, and make sure the rotor is spinning with the cam...If this fails to spin, inspect the entire distributor assembly. If it passes, Inspect all the power circuit and wiring to the dist assembly, if ok possible ecu. i recommend having a mechanic check it out!! Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

1988 toyota camry 2.0 engine (timing)


Pull #1 spark plug and rotate the engine until you hear air rush out of the cylinder, (plug the hole with your finger if you can), then look at the timing mark, it will be close to TDC
