We had a compression check done and the compression is fine but the number 1 spark plug has oil all over the boot, I guess its called blow-by. Just found that issue last night, so far we have replaced the computer twice, the distributor, sensors, fuel tank, fuel pump, and still the check engine light comes on and it runs rough. We are thinking about replacing the wiring harness and if we dont have to I'd rather not have to.Anyone with any thoughts?
