Water in the oil


Radiator coolant in the engine oil is normally an indication of a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

Running the engine in an overheated condition will cause head gasket failure and often a crack in the cylinder head.

The problem you have is coolant is escaping into the engine's lubrication passages via the failed head gasket or head crack and contaminating the engine oil. If not fixed you will cause further damage to the engine as oil contaminated with radiator coolant cannot adequately lubricate the engine.

Running a leak down test on each cylinder will confirm the leak. In this case you are going to need to have the cylinder head removed and thoroughly checked for cracks and any warpage as well as a new cylinder head gasket fitted. The condition the engine block surface will also need to be checked.

Keeps running out of oil


Put the car on a hoist and look for an oil leak. Here are the common places to find a leak. 1) Valve cover gasket, can leak down on the backside of the engine. You should find the back of the engine wet with oil all the way up. 2) Leaking drain plug or oil filter. 3) Leaking oil pressure switch. 4) Leaking front or rear main seal around the crankshaft.
If the motor and underneath is dry and has no oil present, check the inside of the tailpipe. You may have a broken oil ring on one of the cylinders, or bad valve stem seals inside the top of the cylinder head. Be blessed.

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.

I HAVE AN 89 GALANT AND IS LEAKING A YELLOWISH CREAMY LIKE STUFF OUT OF THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING WHAT IS THIS FROM?


Sounds like you have engine oil leaking into the coolant. If so it could be anything from an intake manifold to a head gasket leak. You should pressurize the cooling system, remove the sparkplugs, and look for signs of coolant in the cylinders.

There is engine oil in the spark plug well of No1 cylinder (the well is about 10-12cm long and the oil is almost up to the top of the spark plug). I'm guessing there is a seal or seals between the cylnder...


Valve cover gasket , this is a common problem and its not the cylinder head it is held in by 6 bolts and is common to leak in to sparkplug area and causes misfire, your spark plugs wires are considered oil soak and you might as well get those replaced,

Rebuilt top end twice water was leaking into oil so striped it down put new gasket kit in still got same problem


If it got realy hot you may of warped the head or cracked the cylinder. Do a compersition test to see how much pressure you are looseing. High would be the head witch would be easyer and cheaper to fix low you may need to replace the cylinder

Cause of oil in sparkplug tube?


1.your valve cover's spark plug chamber seal is leaking. Which requires removing the valve covers and replacing the gaskets and seals. 2. Excessive oil spills on to the valve cover and ignition coils when adding oil.

**This excess oil on the plug boots can cause the coils to short and eventually fail.

I can't find the location of the spark plugs on my 1997 Isuzu Rodeo LS with a V6 3.2L engine


They are underneath the coil that each cylinder has-you'll see 6 "coils"-three to side-on top of each valve cover. Remove the wire connector from the coil-remove two screws holding each coil to valve cover-carefully pull coil up away from valve cover. If it is stuck-slightly rotate coil back and forth to break it's hold on the spark plug. Use sparkplug socket and long extension to reach sparkplug down inside of valve cover. Driver's side of engine you will find one sparkplug difficult to get because of interference from brake system components. Use TWO short extensions coupled together to reach plug-when it becomes unscrewed from cyl head-lift it up-pull off one extension to clear obstruction-then pull the plug out from valve cover. (I bet you'll see some oil inside the hole where sparkplug was-(sparkplug may be wet with oil-there are seals that keep oil from leaking out of vavle cover). I DID NOT bother to replace the seals-my Rodeo is running just fine with 317,000 miles on her.

Is oil supposed to be sitting on top of the sparkplugs? 2000 ford escort zx2.


no-- if oil is on plugs when removed from cylinder u have a problem with heads--valve seals more the likely problem-but others can be valve-valve guides-crack in head etc-----if oil on outside of plug-plugwire than look for a gasket leak
