Hi @noremac168 ,

Is there blue smoke coming from the exhaust?

This link gives some of the reasons for oil in the spark plug well. (scroll down to the Common reasons for this to happen: paragraph)

No it’s white but it smells like burning oil


Hi @noremac168 ,

White is also not good. It usually indicates coolant getting into the cylinders/exhaust manifold.

Are you also losing coolant?

Does the oil on the dipstick have a milky look or even bubbles?


I’m not losing coolant just oil


Hi @noremac168 ,

Are all the plugs covered in oil or only one or a couple?

If not all then it may pay to get a compression test done on the cylinders to check if the leak may be through the rings or the valve guides


After I replaced the valve cover it’s been just one
