Just serviced my car, changed the sparks the oil and filter and the fuel filter!!!

Shock horror, in cylinder three i have oil sitting with the spark plug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe this to be oil rings? what else could it be? and is it costly? can i do any checks to confirm any thing?

It does burn much oil and both oil and water are clean ( i know this is to do with head gasket but i thought i would add it in )

Please help....Oh and its the 1.8, 97 P, 72,000 miles!!!

Thanks in advance for any help

No blue smoke not really any oil just the odd top up and they arent much... she runs sweet as a nut!!!

just alarmed to find oil there?

I had to do only two tiny top ups in 12000 miles so not alot of oil!!!

I dont know what it could be really?

Thanks for your help again tom

Its seems to be a fact of life that fiat engines weep oil from the cam covers. My 1.6 does, my sisters uno does. Live with it, its not going to do any harm :)

Thats good news, the spark plug wasnt covered in oil just the nut part of it....

As long as you think it wont do any harm then thats fine....

Thanks Tom
