SOURCE: valve cover gasket leaking

When you buy the valve cover set, it will include the spark plug well "O" rings. Simply remove the valve cover and on the underside of the valve cover, you'll see the "O" rings that need replaced and you'll see exactly how the valve cover gasket itself fits.

SOURCE: replace valve cover gasket

I have the same problem on a 2003 Town & Country. The cover for the front 3 cylinders is quite straight forward, but in order to do the rear cylinders I believe you are going to have to remove the cowling below the windshield. You will need a gear puller to remover the windshield wipers first, then remove the cowling. Than should give you more room to work. It's still not going to be easy, but it sure beats paying hundreds of $$$$ in labor charges.

SOURCE: 1999 Chrysler Sebring Coupe 2.5 oil in spark plug

It is possible the tubes are leaking at the bottom but highly unlikely. There is next to 0 oil pressure in that area so the tubes would actually drain if leaking. I would start with the tube seals and gaskets as you have already planned and check it again later down the road like at the next oil change interval. You're on the right track for the repair, just be patient with the intake plenum and you'll do fine.

Oil leaking on spark plug


If the spark plug is oil fouled, you either have leaking valve seals, or bad piston rings. Bad rings would be accompanied by excessive blow-by. With the engine running, remove your oil filler cap. If there is air pulsing out of the filler tube, it your rings. If not, it is your valve seals.

Oil in spark park plugs


You have leaking spark plug grommet/seals under the valve cover, and most likely being a 91, also have leaking cam tower o-rings. The first is just a matter of replacing the valve cover gasket set. The second requires removal of the cam tower/rocker arm shaft assy. to access the o-ring seals between them and the head. If you are not an experience mechanic, I do not recommend doing this yourself. It is easy to damage parts and bend valves if you don't seat it properly.

Leaking around sparkplug, continuing problem even with new gasgets


New valve cover gasket and spark plug o-ring gaskets are definitely supposed to contain the oil within the valve cover. Maybe one of the spark plug o-ring gaskets was not seated properly, allowing oil to still leak out into the spark plug hole.

Oil in the sparkplug hole


O-ring seal for spark plug are leaking. Located under valve cover.
To replace them,
1.unplug spark plug wire from spark plug.
2.remove valve on top of engine, by loosing the 5(10mm) bolts and disconnecting air hose.
you might have to use a pry bar to pry valve cover off.
3. flip cover upside down and you'll see that there's one o-ring per spark plug hole. remove them and install new one. You might want to replace valve cover gasket too.

4. Yes it will make your car run bad

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil


i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.
