First check the engine compression with a gauge.It should be over 100psi.If not either the bore job was off or the rings either broke,stuck or were not installed correctly.Either way I would let who ever done the work know.The oil ring could be on wrong and still have compression too.

I have a oil in the spark plugs and its Messina maxima 2003


You either need a new piston scraper ring, or all new rings due to broken rings, or you need to get a rebore and new Pistons and rings. Or the seals on the valve stems have gone.

Or time to change the plugs and sell.

I would put a new set of plugs in the vehicle and check them in a week and then make the decision. Do you burn oil? Blue smoke and the need to top up?

Pulsar 220 Bike emits little smoke even after Rebuild, how do I fix?


Did you clean the bore REALLY REALLY good with hot soapy water and a brush before assembly? Need to remove all the grit from the honing process. Test by rubbing hard with a white cloth.It MUST still be white after rubbing. If not then clean it again. It will wear out the rings quickly if it's not right. Solvent will not clean it properly.

Engine race and new spark plug is rust carbon every 5-10km


1.check your engine oil level. 2.check the silencer whether black smoke or blue smoke? in case black smoke, airfilter is blocked and improper air/fuel screw adjustment in carburetor. in case blue smoke,the oil burns inside the cylinder, check the valve clearance or the cylinder need to reboring or replacement along with piston....

Plugs fouled


there are two ways plugs foul up is too much fuel or oil is getting in to the cylinders,does the bike blow excesive amont of smoke on start up and when you are riding,and is it one spark plug or all if it is a single plug and comes out black with oil then it could be a vave seal or it could be a damaged oil ring on your piston ,if it is doing it on all cylinders then more than likely the piston and rings need replacing and the bores to be honed or rebored to the next size piston and rings,hope tis helps cheers pete

Excessive carbon on spark plugs which causes to fail


carbon on sparkplugs are caused by oil in the combustion chamber.

here are some things to do:
1. replace the sparkplug
2. replace your head gasket
3. check if your ignition timing is correct (timing in the distributor, camshaft, and crankshaft)

if these does not solve your problem, try this:
1. have your cylinder head checked for leaks/cracks
2. replace your piston rings

lastly, if all of these dont work, this is the solution (but quite pricey)
1. have your head rebored. reboring the cylinder head means making your combustion chamber wider so cracks/leaks on the wall will be removed.
2. after rebore.. you have 2 options: resleeve or replace piston rings. Resleeve means inserting sleeves in the bored chamber to replace the removed part. replacing pistong rings is also an alternative since your old one will not fit anymore ot the rebored head.

Hi, I have a Masport 635 Lawn mower, I think it is 2 stroke, just petrol ( not mixed with oil ). I don't know anything about how to maintain mowers. But today I mowed the back yard, it went fine, then...


If it is two stroke it must have oil mixed in with it. Try pulling the cord and notice if there is any compression if not then it is the pistion and if it doesn't turn then it is seized with lack of oil.Now if it is four stroke take the plug out put it to the head and pull the cord to see if there is any spark if there is it's a fuel problem.

well your magneto is fine(because your headlight works when you kick it over) I bet it is something as simple as you forgot to hook up a wire since you had it all taken apart. since your magneto is fine that just leaves #1 coil....or....#2 cdi box.....to find the coil just follow the wire from your spark plug to it....your CDI box should be mounted under the seat( make sure all the wires are hooked up ) and check again.....

Eng. shakes spits/sputters oil in spark plugs


I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.
