oil in the combustion chamber

Recommended Posts

i was cleaning up my spark plugs today, and when i pulled the front four out (#2,4,6,8) all had a significant amount of oil around the threads, and some oil was even working its way up around the threads and out of the top of the combustion chamber. the back ones looked alright (#1,3,5,7), just a lil bridged from carbon build up. how can i get that oil out of there? and how can i stop the leak?? i guess my car is crazy and needs a head job hehe

I'm pretty sure you don't mean the oil is coming "...out of the top of the combustion chamber". If that was the case, your engine would be smoking all the time because of the oil in the combustion chamber.

What you probably have is leaking oil seals around the spark plug holes in your cam cover. Not worth removing the cam cover to replace the seals.

As Jim noted the spark plug hole seals are leaking, you might try re-torquing your CAM covers to spec. If the oil was high enough it is likely that it created a path to ground for the spark and created roughness... Not a serious problem
