You will have to put another valve cover gasket on between each cylinder there is a round gasket between valve cover and cylinder head if you buy the valve cover gasket kit they will be in the kit .please rate this answer thanks.

    if it is just one ring it is for the distributer dont worry about that if there are four they go over the spark plug hole when the gasket is off

The big o-ring between under the valve cover for the spark plug holes is not the only source of oil in the plug holes. There are also seals under the cam supports through which the plug holes go as well. In order to fix these, the rocker assembly and cam supports need to be removed (more involved than just the valve cover). I have this problem on my 90 Accord. I occassionally remove the plugs, clean them, the plug boots, and the spark plug holes, then reinstall everything. If mine makes it to 300,000 when the timing belt is due, I may go in and fix this leak as well.

About all you can do is start over and have it replaced again...but, you know, by someone that knows what their doing....Oh, before you do that make sure he tightened the valve cover bolts down......

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.

my guess is you meant changing carbon core
HV spark wires, but the plug wells are like oil pits. (flooded) SUPER COMMON.

(not spark tips carbon-ed up. right)

all G16b do this seen 100s and all C.O.P engines.
1 cause
owners did not do full 60k mile tuneup
per operators guide, lost it have it ask.
the valve lash step, demands a new valve cover gasket set.
if not it will fAIL, it will,like pissn on a sparkplug
bam. like texas talk, i do...sorry

that is fail 2 , in the woods,
or like train light in the tunnel.

not one of those parts last the life of engine
the real reasons tuneups were invented
and why planes dont crash (of ddumbb things like this)

tuneups on this engine, only make long walk home
on other engines, most DOHC. boom head valves bent or far far worse.

Oil leak into no2 sparkplug hole missing due to oil. how easy is this to repair?


You need to replace the spark plug tube seals in the valve cover. Very easy once you get the valve cover off. Make sure you get the valve cover gasket kit that includes the tube seals. Victor Reinz makes it: Part number VS50059

2002 Passat, 30 valve V6 has oil leaking on exhaust manifold. VW dealer says its the cam adjuster seals. It looks to me like its just the valve cover gaskets but I can't get an engine schematic to see the...


I have a 2000 Passat V6. They told me that same thing. To replace the gaskets is easy. You just remove the covers and the air filter box and unscrew the 6 bolts holding the valve cover on it and there you go. You want to clean around the gasket service and add a little bit of sealant to the edges. Replace the old gaskets and put everything back together, be careful not to overtighten the bolts, can flatten out the gasket and cause oil leak again. On the right side of the engine, you have to remove the coolant box to get to it. Same procedure....

yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

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.

ON 2002 ALTIMA 2.5 I FOUND OIL IN ONE TUBE WHERE SPARK PLUG IS WHAT SEAL ON VALVE COVER OR PLUG TOP SEAL WOULD CAUSE THIS...CAR DOES NOT LEAK OR BURN OIL AT ALL


I would try snugging down all the valve cover bolts before replacing anything. A valve cover gasket kit should have the grommets and gaskets necessary to repair this if you find no loose bolts.

Oil leak


That is an overhead valve engine and there are seals around the tubes that surround the spark plugs and they tend to dry out and leak after awhile.

Recommend getting a valve cover gasket kit and replace the valve cover and Spark plug tube gromments
