Asked by Jun 19, 2016 at 08:53 PM about the 2004 Kia Spectra LS

Is your question about the cylinder or the spark plug opening where the boot and plug wire fit? If it is the cylinder then it could be a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head, if about the plug opening then the plug boot seal is shot on that cylinder, if it was the tube seal then it would be oil.
