I have a 2008 civic hatchback (uk made). I neglected this car from 100k km to 140k km then decided to take care of it. Most maintenance went smooth then I saw the service schedule and found out spark plugs change at 120k km has to be done. So pulled out the spark plugs and they had a strong white deposit on the earth tip (side tip). As other than that the spark plugs were as good as new and super clean. I understand this indicates engine running in lean condition.
On the other hand my oil smells a lot like gasoline. As I understand this might indicate rich condition.
So I am super confused. Am I missing anything? Anybody to guide me to the right direction?
