I have oil on tip of plug wire on only 1 of my spark plugs,all others have a little oil on spark plug itself.I just had the timing belt done ,water pump all sealas and head gasket,new wires do i need to...

You need a new Valve Cover Gasket. The rubber seals around the spark plug holes on the Valve Cover are leaking. A new Valve Cover Gasket will come with the round gaskets that seal the spark plug hole.

Will to much oil in motorcycle cause it to go into coolant

No, only a leaking head gasket or a popped water pump oil seal will allow anti freeze into your oil. I would look for oil or antifreeze out of the weep hole under the water pump at the front of the engine. If the weep hole has become plugged wwith dirt or debris, then the anti freeze would pass into the motor oil. If this is the case get your water pump from Honda and purchase the water pump gasket set from K&L supply, it will have all the gaskets, seals, and washers to replace the water pump. If you suspect the head gaskets , remove the spark plugs and look for signs of antifreeze in the combustion chamber. It is not definitive but it may give a clue with out just going to the expense of changing the head gaskets out.

I have oil in my coolant reservoir. i have cleaned it out once and now the oil is back. what does this mean? there is no water in the oil and the oil smells fine.

There are two potential places to get oil in your anti freeze. If you water pump weep hole on the top back of the motor is plugged , you could have oil leaking past the cam seal and through the water pump seal into the anti freeze. This is unlikely. Honda typically sends oil under pressure through passageways that go through the head gasket. If the head gasket was changes and new o-rings were not used on the passageways or they have shrunk with age , oil is probably traveling from the high pressure passage way through the head gasket into the anti freeze. In simpler terms , try replacing both your head gaskets and passageway o-rings and you should stop the oil from getting into your anti freeze.

Water found in engine oil

By water I,m guessing it's actually coolant. the most common cause would be a waterpump seal. there is usually a tell tale hole on the waterpump cover that will weep coolant if the seal is failing. Other causes can be a leaking head gasket but you will generally notice a change in performance.

I have an oil leak from a drain hole in front of engine.what could be the problem?

If the oil plug bolt is leaking you need a new aluminum sealing washer. There are no oil weep holes in the front of the motor. Is it the weep hole under the water pump? You probably have a bad water pump seal or a bad oil seal on the water pump shaft. Buy a new water pump and the K&L water pump gasket kit. The K&L gasket kit comes with all the gaskets, seals, and washers necessary to do the water pump replacement for a fraction of the cost of the OEM Honda individual gaskets, seals, and washers.

hi, sounds like the oil seal in the rocker cover has failed, remove the rocker cover and you will see a rubber seal, this seals the oil inside the cover, however when the seal fails around the spark plug hole, oil leaks into spark plug well and out of weep hole.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil

i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

I have a BMW 2000 316 Ci that has been using a lot of water. My mechanic had it at the weekend and replaced a hose near the head gasket but it still has the same problem, it however is not overheating

have coolant system pressure test.what they do is pressurize your coolant.about 14 psi look in radiator for bubbles if so you have head gasket leak. or they drain oil out leave drain plug out to see if coolant come out crank case.that also means leaking head gasket or intake gasket.they will look for leaks around radiator +all hoses.look at water pump gasket weep hole.for leaks also check engine core plugs for leaks.they will make sure you have 50% coolant and 50% water .if you have too much will evaporate away.

Anti freeze driping out of seep hole from the bottom of case

there are two different seals on the water pump. the oil seal and the mechanical seal. the oil seal helps seal out the oil from the trans case. the mechanical seal helps seal the coolant from going into the trans case, and vise versa.
the weep hole is there to help diagnose if either seal is faulting. so if coolant is leaking from the weep hole. the mechanical seal is faulting or if the oil seal is leaking oil will drip from the weep hole.
hope this is of some help. thank you.
