Can be several things. None are good. Oil seals on valve stems are a potential problem. A bad head gasket can leak if the design has oil passages in the heads. The last reason would be oil rings on the pistons.

There are some ways to test to determine which of these 3 problems it is. The tests can be done by a Mechanic and involve pressurizing the inside of the engine in different ways to see which part is at fault.

About the only positive news is that there is a difference between removing 1 head and removing both heads. You only need to fix the side of the engine that is bad. The good side can stay sealed.

There are products which plug oil leaks internally if the gasket is the problem and you may not need to tear apart the engine if the additive works.

  1. Remove the screw(s) and wing nut retainers at the rear of the luggage compartment and push the trim away from the back of the light.
  2. Remove the wing nuts retaining the light assembly to the vehicle and the retaining nut from either side of the luggage compartment and pull the light body assembly from the vehicle.
  3. Turn the bulb socket(s) counterclockwise to the stop and remove the socket(s) from the light assembly. Remove the bulb(s) from the socket(s).
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Two choice:
1. Inspect the Head Gasket; Cause: head gasket leaking coolant into cylinders
2. inspect the Engine; Cause: Cracked block leaking coolant into cylinders.

Coolant is not a flammable liquid, therefore a lot of coolant in cylinder creates starting problem. You should check your engine and the coolant system for this issue.

The first thing you can do is check the oil dipstick - you're looking for a milky brown color as opposed to a dark brown (normal) color for oil - unless you've recently had an oil change - then it will be like honey. If you don't see any discoloration - I would then look around the the bottom of the area where the valve covers are located - the valve covers sit atop the heads and if you have a "blown" head gasket - you may see evidence of water/coolant seepage. You can also take the vehicle to a mechanic, who can do a simple test using air pressure to isolate a potential gasket issue.

Good luck (remember rated this post).
