I was driving my car today and the engine started to stall and I
barely had time to turn to a parking lot at a fast food restaurant
but I made it. I tried to start the engine and after maybe the 5th
trial it started but every time I tried to rev it up it wanted to
stop plus I noticed a popping sound from the left front of the
engine bay around the air filter or maybe the charcoal canister.
What could that sound be? Then I noticed all 6 plugs were full of
oil, the valve cover bolts were not tight enough and that filled
the plugs with oil. I also noticed there’s no 1 second burst sound
from the fuel pump. I only replaced the rotor and cleaned the plugs
and holes. After that the engine only cranks but does not start at
all. I haven’t checked the fuel pump relay, it’s not too old, max.
1.5 year old, 1 year old FPR, 3.5 year old fuel filter, don’t know
anything about the injectors.
Are these three things (oily plugs, popping sound from the engine
bay, no burst sound from fuel pump) related somehow?
Thanks for any advice in advance!
