    Lately I noticed my lil sohc-tec motor has been dragging and my gas mileage is going down. I changed the air filter, used injector cleaner, and changed the oil. My little 1.6 is still lagging. I took a look at the plugs and noticed that they had some oil on them.

    - Where did this oil come from?
    - Is it causing my problem?
    - What do I need to change besides the spark plugs?

    What am I looking for when I inspect the dizzy rotor?
    Blanco are you taking about the seals that are under the valve cover or the seals that are in the combustion camber?
