sounds like you could have worn rings, recheck and see if your smoke is black or blue-grey. if blue-grey(burning oil) I would check the compression in the cylinders you found oil(white crust on the plug) if you have wet oil on the plugs it is almost always external, I would change the valve cover gaskets. if the noise is a nocking type sound it is time to replace you short block. good luck!!!!

What is causing an 88 Jeep Cherokee to make a Banging noise in the rear passenger area it isn't the driveshaft it was checked already.?

check the exhaust system for loose mounting clamps. Check the shock, springs, and bushings. also check the gas tank straps. If the banging is when the gears are changed from park to reverse, recheck the u-joints, at the ends of the drive shaft. Brakes can sometimes make a banging noise. if not these then look for loose nuts, bolt in the area of the noise. then the sound may be coming directly from the the rear end or the transmission. hope it helps. duboff
