My '96 had the same problem. On my car, the leaks were on the vtec solenoid (spool valve) and the distributor, where the distributor meets the cam shaft. The seals on my distributor weren't serviceable, but your car doesn't have a distributor to leak. Instead, it has a cam position sensor (it's placed identically to a distributor, making it easy to locate). It's probably a simple o-ring replacement between the cam sensor and camshaft.

Sounds to me like you have either forgot to put back on the breather tube that runs off of the top of the valve cover, or, you did not set your valve cover correctly, or the torque is not correct on the cover itself.
8.7ft/lbs and the torque sequence is inside to outside (torque the inner-most nut between cyl 2 & 3 first, then the one above it then alternate sides on the outside ones). Recommended Hondabond is on the corners and the cam cap areas.

Why does my 1997 honda accord have oil around the spark plugs?


You have to replace the Valve cover gasket. Inside the spark plug hole, midway down is a gasket, every spark plug hole has them, you cant see it because its, well a gasket pressed against two very tight suface every spark plug hole, When these leak they fil up the sprkplug cavity, as you know. Go to a parts store, spend $30 dollars on a VALVE COVER GASKET SET. If reparied properly wiil be a 100% fix. If it's a 4 cylinder honda,, a monkey with downs syndrom could do this in five minutes. V6 accord, save yourself the time, grief and heart ache, and take it to a Professional.

I have a 92 Honda Accord, what causes oil around the spark plug. and how do I fix it. Would it also mke the vehicle run bad?


1. Worn or broken rings on that cylinder
2. Valve guides or seals worn on that cylinder
3. To fix the rings you will have to remove the head and sump (Remove the motor from the car if you cannot remove the sump with it in the car)
4. Yes it will make your car run bad

My 1994 Honda Accord has been leaking about a quart of oil every two weeks. I had the oil pan replaced and it is still leaking. Last week, I replaced the spark plugs and three of the wire holes on top of...


your need a valve cover gasket set. It comes with 4 rubber seals for the spark plug tower so oil does not leak on the plugs. Common problem, Simple to fix. Takes about an hour

Have to crank it at least for times to start and it thows white smoke sometimes when it starts 95 honda accord


the first thing you should check is if oil is leaking into the combustion chamber. i say this because it is very common for the tube seals to leak on the valve cover and into the spark plug holes. pull out the spark plug wires from the valve cover and see if they have oil on them, if so replace the valve cover gasket and tube seals.

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.

Spark plug well filling with oil.


a new valve cover gasket and o-rings around the wells should have cured this...did you clean the old o-rings off the valve cover completely before installing new ones? this is a common problem with these models.....i would re-check my gaskets and mateing surfaces. valve cover gaskets and spark plug well o-rings are relatively low cost. the spark plug is tight, correct? write back with an update!
