My spark plug is smoking, what should I do? Answered

Earlier today I went mudding in my golfcart. After a while I felt the engine beneath my seat get really hot. So I opened the hood and my spark plug was smoking. What could this mean? And how should I fix this?

Take away its cigarettes. ...hmmm I've never heard of that. Perhaps its loose and letting exhaust gasses escape? were you running the engine too hard? Is the engine air-cooled? perhaps it just overheated. Remove and inspect the spark plug for damage, corrosion, and make sure the ceramic is not chipped.

. That was probably steam. Could be some oil. Dry/clean everything off and try again.
