shit, i already had an idea the piston ring on my 4th piston was bad. was i was checking out my engine, i pick up the spark plug wires. the 4th one was drenched in oil. i dont even see how it could have worked in a condition like that.

my question is: is there oil in there (area between spark plug wire and top of spark plug) because my piston ring is busted, or could it be something else.

it is causing my car to really smoke badly.

thanks in advance.

i agree with the last post, before you or anyone assumes its a piston ring, change the valve cover gasket and spark plug gaskets, cause its a fraction of the cost of an engine or a ring R&R, and its also most likely the case. do this first, its cheap and easy to do. if thats dont help, go get a compression test, leak down test, ect.
