Question about 1992 Honda Accord
There is oil in two of the four plugs, did the covers break on them where i would have too replace them???
Assuming it is oil on the outside of the plugs in the holes in the head, there are two places for oil to get in. The easy one to fix is the seals between the valve cover and head. A gasket kit includes the cover gasket and four large o-rings to seal the holes. Torque on the nuts is 10 ft-lb (I think). From personal experience, the problem is more likely the seals between the rocker shaft mounts (that also form part of the spark plug holes) and the head. Replacing these is a little more involved since the rocker assembly (and cam?) have to be removed. I periodically remove the plugs and clean the plugs, wire boots, and the holes, then reinstall the plugs. If mine makes it to 300,000 miles, I may replace these seal when I do the timing belt and water pump.
