Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner left out too long.
2. Incorrect spark plugs for your kind of service.
3. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
4. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off valve guide and pump oil through it.
5. Spark plug cable weak or ignition coil faulty.

SOURCE: spark keeps fouling but no clue why

Are you losing gear oil.
When the crankshaft seal leaks, oil from the gearbox is sucked into the crankcase, and this can foul the plug.
Also check the plug gap, most guys set the gap too small. It should be 0,7mmto 0,8mm. The plug should be a B9 EG, or equivilant.
Now, you can also change the plug cap to a type that has a built in resistor, this also helps with plug life.
Note that 2 strokes use plugs way more than 4 strokes, and you should replace the plug every 15-20 hours to keep your riding pleasant.
Good Bike you have there
Cheers

Yes, the water seal is leaking. This is the indicator hole for the water and oil seal.
Enjoy the ride !

SOURCE: Fouling plugs

Get a new NGK spark plug one heat range hotter than stock. Be sure the fuel mix is 32/1 using two stroke engine oil ( not motor oil ). A 32/1 mixture equals 4 ounces oil to 1 gallon of gas. Remove the cylinder head and de-carbon the top of the piston and head.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: what spark plug for yz 125?

I have a dennis kirk book, the correct spark plug is a --BR9ES--(NGK)

i always used SAE 10w-30 oil on all my dirtbikes,
no transmission fluid

for the chain you should move the back tire back until the chain is at a snug tension

SOURCE: my yamaha yz 125 is dumping to much fuel and

There are only two adjustments to make on your carburetor; the idle speed, and the idle mixture adjustment. If the spark plug fouls frequently, first make sure you are using the correct spark plug. Your 1997 YZ125 uses an NGKB9EGV. Then be sure you are using the recommended two stroke oil, mixed to the proper ratio, in the fuel. Also make sure the air filter is not excessively soiled.
With all of the above confirmed and corrected, start the bike and run until the engine is up to normal temperature. Adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the fastest idle and best throttle response. Then adjust the idle speed.
If you are still fouling the spark plug, verify that the carburetor has the correct size jets by consulting your owner's manual. Keep in mind that if you are operating your bike at an altitude higher than about 6,000 feet above sea level, the stock jetting may be too rich. Down-size the main jet in small increments until satisfactory operation and the correct spark plug color is obtained.

Chevrolet cruze 2012 spark plug gets wet with water from somewhere, it is not because of a wash, I did a pressure test the head gasket is fine ,,, they say, the blue liquid turn yellow


The cylinder pressure may be fine but the leak might occur from the coolant part of the gasket, possibly incorrectly tensioned bolts. Try replacing the gasket (at the very least do a visual examination) run the car for 20 mins with the hood up and watch the area closely around the plug area and note if any hoses are leaking nearby.

I had 92 honda civiv hatchback, the sparkplugs get wet with engine oil from vave cover, does sparkplugs has its own individual seals?


The spark plugs, if getting wet from the engine oil dripping off of the valve cover gasket, is not good.
The boots of the spark plug wires will prevent the contacts from getting oily, but not for long. I would have the valve cover gasket replaced to prevent this from happening. It's not good to get the spark plugs and wires wet with engine oil.

My 1994 nissan pickup cranks but will not start


Need to check for fuel. Easy way to do this is wipe one of the plugs clean and dry and put back in without wire attched. Crank truck as if you were trying to start it. Pull plug out and check to see if it is wet. Should smell like gasoline. If so, recommend you replace the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. If not, you have a fuel problem.

My 99 f350 v10 wont start. starts fine for a couple of days then out of the blue it just wont start. replaced filter, throttle control nothing any help


You have replace filter-assuming air filter?
Throttle control? Are you checking to make sure you have Fuel spraying after you crank the engine?
1- Let's check this. AFter cranking for a while.
2- remove spark plugs see if it wet.
3- it if is, you have fuel Go to # 5
4- It if is not, then you don't have Fuel. Need to fix this.
5- Plug the spark plug as it supposely connected, but not screwing in. Hold it against the chasis and crank it up to see if it sparks. Need a helper.
6-If there is no spark. Need to fix this.
7- If your spark plug is wet and there is also spark, report back then I will provide next diagnoses. Good luck.
