Haha.
I was wrong... It WAS the spark plugs!

I'm so happy for you Rollo!!!!!


Now you'll just have to keep an eye on those two cylinders... 7 and 8.

That's a still picture, I couldn't tell.
No. It should be a steady idle.

It may have been from a previous spill or something. Keep an eye on those two cylinders and see if they get oil again.

Sure I'll PM you...

Yeah. The RPM's should "hang" at around 1000 after you let off the gas and then drop to around 750. 500 is too low.

Try disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes to clear the memory and then let the car idle for 15 minutes so that the computer can relearn the idle trim.

after about 1k of miles pull those plugs again and take a look to see if there is any oil. I vote that since you have the compression tester that you should re do the compression test at that time. As 7 and 8 are near the rear of the engine and I cant see that being from a spill. Your rings or valve cover gaskets may need attention.
good to know the car is running well for you! But financially prepare yourself for worst case scenario

I'm at that point already. I'm praying it's not the rings. But I think the next thing I may do is spark plugs. Get better ones. Valve cover gaskets look like a b itch to do. But I know for sure it's not that bad to do compared to rings. But I still had good compression. Every thing was at 75-90. So let's see. Next is spark plugs. Then I will replace front end of vehicle. It's dent. Followers by rear springs with tires. So I have a bit to do. Lol. Let's just pray I fixed the stalling. Well and I have to test the idle I showed u in the video. Could you possible explain it on the thread so others can under stand. You can prob do it better than me. Lol

Driver. Last 2. One was wet. The other dripping. But car is not smoking. Only on the threads. I'm going to pull those two in about two weeks. But all spark plugs were not gapped right. Going to buy new plugs when I get the money.

In the videos Rollo sent me, the car still doesn't seem to idle correctly. When the engine is reved to 3 grand, the RPM's seem to come down to less than 1000 RPM's and then drop right down to 500 and bounce around a bit to around 700.
When he puts the car into drive, thr RPM's drop to about 500.

My car is a manual transmission but the symptoms are very similar to when my car had a worn out IAC. It would sometimes stall when pushing in the clutch when coming to a stop and the idle was erratic.
Let's see if the idle relearn procedure helps and those spark plugs probably do need to be replaced.

the question should be why were they dripping oil in the first place. Sure swapping the plugs will work until the oil coats them again. Most likely why it ran good at first and now had an erratic idle, oil is probably already all over them.

Yes. That's s mystery. He's going to have to keep an eye on that.
The strange part is that if the oil is coming through the rings, the car would be smoking like a pregnant hooker in a bingo parlor!

It might just be the plugs. They looked pretty bad and I had to re gap all of them. But I will check the those other two to see if there is oil on the threads. The oil was only on the threads not the tip

You got to remember depending on how long those plugs were in there, you will show a wider gap as the tip starts to deteriate from firing constantly. So what may have been .32 to .35 depending on the original gap was when installed my be near .40 or .45 after all these firing cycles. So to say they were not gapped correcty is probably not a correct assumption on your part.

And as you have many threads open on this subject and I am not going back and forth to find the answer if it was asked before did you check or replace the IAC on the car when this started?
