|Oil leaking onto spark plug||mike||8-14-11|
|My water pump belt came off cause my 1978 440 dodge motorhome to over heat a lot. Since then oil leaks into the cylinder 1 & 3 causing caron build up on the spark plugs. They begin to misfire and the engine runs rough and back fires on accel. Any ideas other than redoing the heads.|

|The engine is cooked.|
Needs a rebuild, probably not just heads.
Sorry and good Luck

|Thanks Bubba, thats what I though also, but when I clean the plugs, the engine runs fine for about 120 to 150 mile and then the plugs clog up again, then I clean them and it runs fine. It still has good compression and I don't seam to have any coolant leaks. I did cook some vaccume hose and #1 plug wire, (#1 spark plug is the worst of the two), all wires and vac hoses have been replaced. Someone told me today that I may have cooked the valve seals and to try replacing them first. What do you think, is this worth the try? |
Thanks again for your help.
