1996 Camry spark plug popped out and there is oil inside?

Asked by Nov 01, 2014 at 11:52 AM about the 1996 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I checked the oil on the car the other day and it was low. Wile filling it up saw that one
of the spark plugs is out. Pulled it out and there is oil in there. After a few days the car
started choking on the free way and the engine light started blinking. Not too long ago
from Autozone scan they told me that there is a Air leak on the exhaust, Faulty O2
sensor or catalytic converter.  What would the reason for oil in spark plugs be? Also
how can it be fixed and how much would it cost? I have the car parked at home and
scared to drive it. Any suggestions? Thank you!

The cheap fix would be that the valve cover gasket is bad. The expensive fix is that the piston rings or valve seals have failed. Pull the other plugs and see if they have oil in them also. If the others do, you will most likely be having the more expensive fix...........
