Question about 1992 Honda Accord
We are changing the spark plugs and there is oil in two of the spark plug areas..is this normal, what do i need to do to change the other two plugs?
If the oil is in the spark plug holes (not on the firing end) where the plug wire boots are it does not mean a problem with the rings or valve seals. The most likely problem is the seals under the rocker assembly mounts (through which the spark plug holes pass) on the head. Replacing them requires removal of the rocker assembly. The second source of oil in the holes is the seals between the valve cover and the top of the rocker assembly. These are relatively easy to replace; the seal are included in a valve cover seal kit. I have the same problem on my 90 Accord, I just occassionally remove the plugs, clean them, the wire boots, and the holes, then reinstall. When it comes time to do the timing belt again (if it makes it to 300,000 miles), I may fix the leaks.
