I pulled a spark plug to change plugs and the spark plug wire boot was all wet from oil. The other three plugs were fine. The rest of the engine looked fine apart from the regular dirty engine look. No oil...


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.

How to easily replace the spark plug gaskets on a 95 paseo?


Do you mean the spark plug tubes are filling with oil?
If so, remove all 4 plug wires (note where they go) remove the nuts at the top of the spark plug tubes... remove valve cover, and replace 4 tube gaskets and the valve cover gasket. (usually 1 kit)

Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???


most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.

My sons 93 honda accord went dead while he was driving home


If the timing belt went, the engine will crank real fast, because it is not turning the top end of the engine. That means you valve assembly will not move. If plug tubes are filled with oil then you need to replace the seals. Remove the valve cover, replace four round seals on the inside of the cover. 93 accords are famous for the ignighter going bad. Pull a spark plug, stick a screw driver in it, and hold it close to something metal and crank the engine. You should see a spark. If no spark, replace the ignighter inside the distributer cap on top.
