  • Q:

    I have a VW V-6, 2002. I needed to change trans oil but instead checked plugs. I found the plug wells practically filled with oil. When I removed the boot, half of it was dripping with oil. When I inserted socket and remove plug, the oil went into cylinder. The plug electrode didn't have oil on it and only because of all the oil in well as I removed it. What went wrong? I noticed oil dipstick reading before i checked the plugs was over-filled so I immediately took a quart out. Could this have been the cause of oil being in the spark plug wells? I replaced the same spark plugs, cleaned up oil that I could and started up the engine. Of course there was alot of white, billowy smoke at first, but after about ten minutes it stopped smoking. So, is this normal for VW? What can I do, if anything to make sure I do things right regarding the spark plugs? Thanks and any info would be of great help.

      Hi LRon, Sorry, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
