running but would still crank. Timing belt

Checked spark plugs an have oil in them.

Worn piston rings or leaking valve guides. How many miles on the motor?

7,395

Oil on the spark plugs will cause the rough idle, now u gotta do a compression test to determine if it's the piston rings or head.

It has 222000
