i have a '86 rx7...

i blew an O-ring and got it fixed within the next few days...

but since the day before i got that fixed my car is having a very very hard time starting/wont start at all...

it cranks and cranks and cranks and nothing...

i cleaned my spark plugs, they look like new now...

but i noticed something...

i have a pretty bad oil leak and when my car wont start and it finally does it has a whitish smoke come out and leaks ALOT out of somewhere near the front of the car, and it smells like oil and gas mixed...

and my leading spark plug's plug [hole] in the housing has oil in it and leaking out...

does anybody know what this is...

please help!

Definatly sounds like an oil seal inside the engine is busted. You done a compression test?
