I have a Nissan hardbody 2.4i petrol the plugs are getting wet and it starts to misfire what could be the cause

It is a chicken and egg question - which came first, the wet plugs or the misfire?

Are the plugs wet with fuel or is it oil?
Are all the plugs equally wet?

If the ignition system is in good order and the correct spark plugs, correctly gapped and in good condition are fitted, it would be expected if the engine was receiving (moderately) too much fuel, it would keep running until the plugs were completely sooted, black and shorting out and unable to spark properly but at that moment the plugs would still be quite dry.
Persisting after this will of course cause wet plugs if the engine is still relatively cool but the sooty evidence of what has happened will still be there.

If the plugs are relatively clean but wet it is unlikely to be fuel as such large quantities that is would take to wet the plugs without any sooting it would be doubtful if the engine ran at all.

I hope I have provided you with food for thought. If you need to post again please provide accurate and detailed descriptions of the symptoms and what you have already checked.

Could you please advise possible reasons for misfiring. 2 of the 4 plugs are also wet

If the plugs are wet I would think there not firing so could be HT leads or bad plugs. If there wet with oil thAt would suggest oil rings on pistons have worn

Wet spark plug

Wet plug simply means you are getting no spark. Could be bad plug, wrong gap, plug wire came off, bad mag coil, or stop wire still grounded. Most times is fouled or burned out plug. Change it out first before major work.

Wet spark plugs

Wet plugs can be from 2 things -- excess fuel ==faulty injectors==excessive fuel pressure in manifold==faulty ECM and 2 excesive oil by passing the rings. have the fault codes read to find faults in the control systems sensors and have a compression test done to determine engine condition. That will also show if the wet plugs is from a cooling leakage problem

Wet spark plugs

wet plugs indicate excessive fuel in that piston that is not being ignited. Possible plug failure or HT lead failure or distributor cap crack for the piston or coil pack for that piston

Earthquake cs4518 wont start

pull the spark plug out and check it for wetness. you may have flooded it unknowingly so it won't start. if it is wet, blow it off or let it air dry. turn the saw so the spark plug hole is facing down and pull the rope a few times to clear all the excess fuel out of the cylinder. put the plug back in and with NO choke try starting it again. if the plug isn't wet let me know and we will see if we can figure something else out

My 1986 Suzuki rm 125 dirt bike spark plug was wet when i took it out, it is water cooled and i'm wondering if the spark plug is suppose to be wet.

The spark plug will be wet from un-burnt fuel. If your water is getting into the engine, your oil will be milky white.

Nope, it's not the carb. The plug is wet and probably black as well. Wet plug and lots of smoke means too much oil in the mix which is where the problem lies. Get a compression tester and look at the pressure reading; anything less than 90psi means the piston ring is stuck and needs to be replaced/cleaned.
