Sparkplug tube seals are leaking. You will need to remove the valve covers and replace the valve cover gaskets and the round seals in the middle of the cover. the tube seals should come with valve cover gaskets.

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

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.

Engine oil flowing on the spark plug


Usually this is due to the spark plug tube seal allowing oil to escape from under the valve cover down the tube. You will have to remove the valve cover and replace the seals. You might consider replacing the valve cover gasket at the same time.
