To fix this, the valve cover seal needs to be replaced. It is not the cover seal itself but the four rubber seals under the cover that keep oil out of your spark plug tubes. This is a simple fix and do not use silicone for any part of the repair.

1997 honda acccord check engine light will come on and starts sputter real bad


This sounds like bad sparkplug wires, pull wires off the plugs and see if oil is on wires, this is common on these cars the valve cover gasket goes bad and oil leaks into sparkplug holes and then it misfires, if theres oil in holes replace the wires and the valve cover gasket with the tube seals,

Cause of oil in sparkplug tube?


1.your valve cover's spark plug chamber seal is leaking. Which requires removing the valve covers and replacing the gaskets and seals. 2. Excessive oil spills on to the valve cover and ignition coils when adding oil.

**This excess oil on the plug boots can cause the coils to short and eventually fail.

Dark spurkplugs, fail


Sounds like you have a bad oil leak....replace your valve cover gaskets...And make sure you replace the three rings, that cover the spark plug tubes, because thats where they are leaking from.. an thats how the oil gets down in there...Now worst case scenario, it maybe blow-by from the piston rings...But thats probaly not the case...Goodluck...

Oil leaking into sparkplug holes on rubber boots


Buy a new valve cover gasket set (and a small tube of silicon high temp sealer). It comes with new rubber seals for each sparkplug hole, and the cover perimeter.Use a little silicon glue on the gaskets to hold them in place. Take your time,do the work with a cold engine in a shaded area. Clean all the oil off the wires and make sure all the old gasket rubber is cleaned off.And check to make sure before you put the cover back on that no old gasket pieces are in the engine.

OIL IN SPARKPLUG TUBE


Sounds like one of two things. One is it has had oil spilled while adding oil and it has ran down into the chamber by gravity. The other is a leaking valve cover gasket.

Oil on the spark plugs


Usually the valve cover seals are bad. There is a seal on the valve cover for each sparkplug tube. Check the seals. If they are bad than there will be oil on the spark plugs.
If there is oil on the spark plug electrode than probably valve guides going bad.
