It wonldn't start so I unplugged the spark plug wires, and oil, I mean oil in all four holes. Can somebody help me. What went wrong and what do I have to do to fix it??? Please Help!!!

First off I would check the O-rings under the valve cover, that seal up the spark plug holes.

You say that he unplugged the wire...While the engine was running? if so didn't you immediately notice the engine chug a lugging?

When was the last time you removed your valve cover?

same thing happened to me, i put a new valve cover on and completely forgot to put the o-rings on the new cover. its mad easy, just make sure you clean all that oil off the spark plugs and surrounding area.

Not sure about replacing the gasket, probably would be a good idea if you are having problems with the o-rings.

well, i think mine its been on for over 12 years... alright, so i unscrew those bolts, take off valve cover (do i need to use brute force to take it off? like maybe is stuck or something?). Then replace the o-ring, but do i need to take the piston off or anything alike?

Thanks Jacksont001, I'll check o-rings and the last time I removed the valve cover was about 2 months ago. I had to change the valve cover gasket because it was leaking. And I changed the oil to. Didn't have a problem, only now.
