If it is leaking for the bottom of the cover, it will be the gasket. thats all you will need to change.

Oil leaking on spark plug


If the spark plug is oil fouled, you either have leaking valve seals, or bad piston rings. Bad rings would be accompanied by excessive blow-by. With the engine running, remove your oil filler cap. If there is air pulsing out of the filler tube, it your rings. If not, it is your valve seals.

Valve body leak 2002 dodge stratus


A vertical cover...I had to ponder that a bit. Still not sure. The valve cover sits flat on top of the cylinder head, with a gasket between them. The cylinder head is where your spark plugs are threaded in. The valve cover rests on top of the cylinder head. It's about 14-18 inches long and about 4 inches high, kind of rounded over so the valves and valve train will fit underneath. A gasket leaking motor oil is very common there, as a lot of oil is directed there and then splashed around to lubricate the valve train. The oil is supposed to drain through engine passages on down to the oil sump- the bottom of engine where oil is kept in the oil pan.

So if you have an oil leak, and it turns out it is the valve cover that is leaking, it's an easy fix-one of the easiest gasket replacements there is.

I had my val cover gasket replace. my honda 1999 crv is still leaking oil. where could th leak be coming from


What makes you think the valve cover was leaking,was oil coming from there.Exactly where is it leaking from.If the oil filter is tighten too tight,then it will leak,also by the oil filter is the oil pressure switch,it's screwed into block,it can leak.The rear oil seal can leak,where engine and transmission meet.If valve cover is not installed correctly,it will leak and loose compression.

Oil leak in front of engine around the distributor. top of engine


Its either the valve cover gasket or the o ring that seals the distributor.
It could be coming from either, so look for oil on the valve cover above
the distributor. If you see oil there its the valve cover.
If you dont see oil coming from the valve cover above the distributor, then look or touch
the bottom of the distributor and if there is oil there then the distributor oring is
whats leaking.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil


i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

I have an oil leak in a spark plug chamber how do is fix it


depends where the oil came from.of it has leaked down from a valve cover gasket,that is not hard to fix.if it a leaking valve seal that is expensive and if the head gasket is leaking,expensive.look at the outside edge of the valve cover,and check the edge for oil.if there is alot of oil,by the time the plug is unscrewed oil can go inside.the oil would burn off,so if there is oil inside it is dripping down probably from a valve seal.take off the valve cover and inspect the seals they are probably no good.there are 2 seal sets,one is in the valve cover,and that results in oil on the outside of the plug,and the actual valve seal which results in oil in the inside of the engine.
