Where did the oil come from?


Asked by Apr 05, 2016 at 06:49 PM about the 2008 Hyundai Accent GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

driving down road, just quit. Hear fuel pump running. Towed home, pulled plugs to do compression test, last one had  oil in it above the part the socket fits on. Haven't done anything else

1 Answer


Sounds like it is coming from valve cover. Looks like that valve cover is pretty sealed up, meaning you may have a major vacuum leak casing the engine not to run. Replacing the valve cover gasket may solve your problems.
