Hi,

On the business end of the plug.
Wet, oily deposits. Will cause weak spark and eventually misfire.Fault:worn bores/piston rings or valve guides; sometimes occurs (temporarily)during running-in period. Plugs can be re-used after a thoroughcleaning.

For pictures :-

On the outside of the Plug. Oil would be from a Leaking Gasket or Seal.


To fix it :-

there are a few things that can be wrong. 1) your valve seals could bebad. 2) your engines piston rings could be worn, causing engine blowby, also you can check your pvc (positive crankcase ventilation) valveto see if its plugged. to see if its plugged, simply pull it out andshake it to see if it rattles, if you hear it rattling then its good.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Why does my 1997 honda accord have oil around the spark plugs?


You have to replace the Valve cover gasket. Inside the spark plug hole, midway down is a gasket, every spark plug hole has them, you cant see it because its, well a gasket pressed against two very tight suface every spark plug hole, When these leak they fil up the sprkplug cavity, as you know. Go to a parts store, spend $30 dollars on a VALVE COVER GASKET SET. If reparied properly wiil be a 100% fix. If it's a 4 cylinder honda,, a monkey with downs syndrom could do this in five minutes. V6 accord, save yourself the time, grief and heart ache, and take it to a Professional.

1997 Honda Accord Won't start. Plugs and wires have oil on them. Still getting spark to plug. Sounds like it wants to fire but fuel starved. Can hear the fuel pump when key is on. Puffs blue smoke...


I dont know why it wont start,but our plugs and wires had oil on them and we replaced the head gasket and it doent get oil on them anymore

Oil around spark plugs on 1992 honda accord


Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.
