Finding oil inside spark plug chamber

Hi i checked my honda accord 1992 spark plug compartment and their is oil i dont know whereits coming from?? There's oil in my spark plug chamber and I don't know where it's coming from. My car was fine with no problems whatsoever until the night that it died. What could have possibly happened? I know I need to change the spark plugs and try to find a hole where oil would be leaking into there but what would cause it?

No, Just change your Valve Cover....sometimes the seal leak that is around the spark plug tube.. When you get the valve cover, make sure it comes with the four seals that goes over that area, because some kits, do not come with them

1992 honda accord lx sounds like a go cart, it goes - putt, putt, while driving. i just had an oil change, could that be it, italmost seems like it wants to cut off.


When did you last have a tune up? Sounds like it's not running on all four cylinders. Check the oil to make sure they filled it to the correct level, but the oil change should not be related. With the engine cold, check the wires at the distributor cap, to make sure they are inserted completely, also that they are connected properly to the spark plugs. If you're not sure when it was last tuned, or it's been quite a while, replace the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor. It won't cost much for parts, and you can do it yourself to save $$. Let me know how it goes, or if you need further help. Curt

1992 honda accord stop running in middle of driving


When you turn the key to start, the engine cranks over? You must check for spark and fuel, if one is missing, the car won't run. Pull a spark plug, with plug wire connected and plug on a metal surface of the engine, have someone turn the key to start, while you watch for spark at the plug. It is easiest to see spark with car out of direct or bright light. If you have spark, attempt to start several times, pull a spark plug and check for evidence of fuel (wet) on plug. Let me know what you find, we can then continue.

Oil around spark plugs on 1992 honda accord


Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.

Spark plug well filling with oil.


a new valve cover gasket and o-rings around the wells should have cured this...did you clean the old o-rings off the valve cover completely before installing new ones? this is a common problem with these models.....i would re-check my gaskets and mateing surfaces. valve cover gaskets and spark plug well o-rings are relatively low cost. the spark plug is tight, correct? write back with an update!

Make sure the spark plug is touching a metal spot on the engine.It has to be grounded to spark.Also check to see if you are getting fuel.
