A small hose for the coolant leaked onto the top of the engine. The hose was above a spark plug. The hose leaked, some coolant landed in a spark plug cavity and seeped down along the plugs and entered the cylinder. When I started it was missing 1 cylinder firing because the plug was fouled or wet. The engine check light was flashing. Repair consisted of changing the hard to reach tubing and plugs.
