The 7MGE has 2 separate valve covers/gaskets with 8 screws holding each cover that will loosen over time.
Find the phillips screws holding on the covers and retighten snugly by hand do not overtighten!
Pull plug boots/wires by the boot not the wire and use paper towels or rags on a long screwdriver etc to absorb the oil from the wells.
Carefully clean plug boots with spray brake cleaner (avoid spraying anything but the boot) and let dry.
Apply 100% silicone grease to inner boot before reinstalling to allow future removal without damage.
If your engine is particularly dirty you may need to remove the covers first and clean all mating surfaces then reinstall.

You definatly need to replace your Spark Plug Tube Seals. Its not very difficult to do yourself. They should cost you about 4 dollars each at your local auto store.

If this is not fixed soon, it will cause more problems. Your O2 sensors will not read correctly because they will be coated in carbon.

I have a toyota cressida gli 6 1989 ,has spark and fuel,motor swings but just wont start


Where had you checked spark first? Is the distributor turning? This can be checked by removing the distributor cap and making sure the shaft is turning as the engine cranks. Have you checked that there is spark at the plugs? The ignition coil could be weak and still produce some spark but not enough to start the engine. Be cautious of all rotating belts and pulleys around the engine while working under the hood.

Oil is getting inside distributor cap, have new distributor on it . Its a 1989 Toyota Cressida


check you PCV system you are getting to much crankcase pressure and this is causing the oil in the distributor, if the PCV system is working then suspect to much blow-by from piston rings.
