Oil with sparkplugs?
Changed my spark plugs today, and when i took the others out they were covered with oil
Is this normal?
if not, what could have caused it?
going by the haynes, it says 'worn bores/piston rings or valve guides;sometimes occurs during runing in'
hope that helped.
too much oil maybe ? High mileage ? valve stem oil seals ? or rings ?
It its a fairly high mileage (80k). but its been very well looked after, ie full service every 8-10k.
I dont mean little deposits of oil, i mean literally soaked in the stuff, as if they'd been dipped in it. it looked like old oil as well, as we did an oil change about 2000 miles ago.
I looked as if it had been done intentionally. Which had us puzzled as to why, if it was done intentionally that is.
