The stock ground wires are kind of **** , my wifes honda did the same thing so i priced a new stock replacement $60. so instead i got 5 ft of 2 gauge cable, a new marine style battery terminal (with the brass wingnut), and 4 crimp style 2 gauge cable ends, which only cost me $15 and took about 10 minutes to put together. this was after i replaced the battery and the starter relay (descovered it was unneccesary through process of elimination)

Oil in spark park plugs


You have leaking spark plug grommet/seals under the valve cover, and most likely being a 91, also have leaking cam tower o-rings. The first is just a matter of replacing the valve cover gasket set. The second requires removal of the cam tower/rocker arm shaft assy. to access the o-ring seals between them and the head. If you are not an experience mechanic, I do not recommend doing this yourself. It is easy to damage parts and bend valves if you don't seat it properly.

Still wondering


is there water in oil or oil in coolant?those cars have bad rep for heads and head gaskets blowing....

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.

1990 Honda Accord DX 5 speed no power/2 cylinders not firing?


ok.....as far as the oil on them it is possible it is only the spark plug tube seals located on the inside of the valve cover,in fact if you can remember when you took the old plug wires off the boots of a couple propably had oil on them.now as far as the real problem I would recommend checking the timing belt it is possible it jumped time,its pretty simple just remove the valve cover(gonna replace the seals anyways)and top timing cover.roll the engine around and look for the cam and crank marks.if you need anymore suggestions or help let me know have a good day DB

Oil Leak


Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.
