The defroster has nothing to do with engine smoke.

You didn't answer though... oil on top of the plug, or on the electrode?

So, prior to unscrewing the plug, oil is located on the electrode itself?

You used a meme image? Are you sure you are not 30 years younger than you say? Props to not being young at heart/not crotchety!

The best way to find the leak would be to clean everything up so it's all shiny and nice, then run it a bit so the you can see where it's coming from.

so i have a 98 ford escort zx2 and I've been experience problems with it starting, it will start easily the first time each day but if I drive somewhere and shut it off and try to fire it back up it either struggles to start or wont fire up unless I let it sit for a little. I changed the spark plugs and noticed oil on cylinder 1 and 3 can this be what is causing my problem and if so what is causing this to happen thanks in advance for any help
