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!

Why does my 1997 honda accord have oil around the spark plugs?


You have to replace the Valve cover gasket. Inside the spark plug hole, midway down is a gasket, every spark plug hole has them, you cant see it because its, well a gasket pressed against two very tight suface every spark plug hole, When these leak they fil up the sprkplug cavity, as you know. Go to a parts store, spend $30 dollars on a VALVE COVER GASKET SET. If reparied properly wiil be a 100% fix. If it's a 4 cylinder honda,, a monkey with downs syndrom could do this in five minutes. V6 accord, save yourself the time, grief and heart ache, and take it to a Professional.

I have a 92 Honda Accord, what causes oil around the spark plug. and how do I fix it. Would it also mke the vehicle run bad?


1. Worn or broken rings on that cylinder
2. Valve guides or seals worn on that cylinder
3. To fix the rings you will have to remove the head and sump (Remove the motor from the car if you cannot remove the sump with it in the car)
4. Yes it will make your car run bad

My 92 Honda seems to sputter at low rpm. Like when you first take off from a dead stop. I had the oil around spark plug problem like the others posted on here. I changed the gaskets, but it is still...


Did you change what's call the "tube seals". It should have came with your valve cover gasket kit. 4 rings that push into the valve cover... If you did this and you still have oil, maybe your plug wires are still wet inside. Is the fuel filter very old?

My 1992 honda honda accord ex is leaking oil on the plugs after changing valve cover gasketand seals and plugs


You'll have to take the valve cover off again. There must be a piece of old gasket still under there somewhere, or your gasket isn't seated properly. Make sure the head is completely clean, and the valve cover.

Oil on spark plugs


Trying to reminber about the layout on those. If the spark plugs are in the valve cover, then your valve cover gasket is leaking and needs replaced. If the oil is on the elctro part of the spark plugs, then the engine is buring oil.

Oil inside cylinders


oil inside the cylinders happens two ways...bad or worn piston rings or bad valve seals.  If you do a compression test this will tell you what the problem is.  when you remove your oil filler cap with the motor running is there a lot of pressure coming from inside the engine?  If there is, as I'm suspecting you are sadly suffering from a worn out engine.

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.
