OIL IN CYLINDERS

1994 Honda Civic

Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 210000 miles

ok so I replaced all gaskets on top end of engine and got the timeing set while adjusting the timeing I pulled my plugs and noticed I have oil in two of my cylinders what could cause this im hopeing I don't have to tear it back apart and change the piston rings but if thats the case do I need to do anything else or can I just replace the rings and if for some reason I added to much oil could this cause the problem

Hello,

First thing I would do is a compression check. If compression is low and there is oil in the cylinder then there is a good possiblilty that the Head Gasket is misaligned or was damaged during installation.
