As most of you know we took a small four day trip. During the whole time of the trip our car ran normally for 200,000 plus car. The Corolla returned us back home with no issues.

Within a couple days of being home the Corolla began to act up run very rough. A friend of ours looked at it thought one the plugs were not firing right. He suggested that plugs needed to be changed. On Thursday night we changed the plugs. One plug was dripping in oil.
We knew that at least the one plug was fouled out. The other three were more normal. The car has been burning oil. The sad news the plugs did not change how the car was running. My friend assumes a valve is leaking oil.

The miracle is that we were able to take our vacation and return home with no incidents.

Once again we are faced with getting a car. Our bankruptcy discharge is three weeks away. Hopefully the car will last at least till then.

Can you replace the valve gaskets to stop the leaking?
