Ok the past 2 days I've been doing my b16a swap today I was going to change the plugs when I looked down the holes before pulling them out there was some sort of liquid down there and when I pulled the plugs out the liquid was dripping off the plug. It didn't smell like anything so I'm thinkin maybe its water? Is this real bad? What should I do? Thanks

well, if you dont put water for over of spark plugs.. ok , for to be 100% sure, try to start it but before do it , remove cap of radiator , and now try to start it, if not starts and show like bubble, your Headgasket is fucked and you will need to check your engine too.. not scare about it , just check it ...

or MAYBE the engine you got was alot of time off recieved rain,etc.. i hope you understand what i means ;).

Good luck!

Can we say hydrolocked?

When my friend picked up his junkyard EJ8, it had a b16 bare block in it, and the cylinders were filled with water. At least you're not that fucked :lol:
