The valve cover gasket may not be seated right if you remove the valve cover check the gasket 4 damage if so replace with new one and make sure if there is a grove for the gasket to sit in that it is in all the way round , applying a little gasket glue on the valve cover befor fitting the gasket can help to keep the gasket in place when you refit to the engine

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.

My 1991 Honda Accord is dropping oil onto the hot cover in the front. Also, the service engine light soon comes on after driving about 10 to 15 minutes. What possibly can be wrong? I think the cover...


You have a bad valve cover gasket. If I remember correctly the spark plug wires go thru the valve cover? If that is true a loose valve cover will leak motor oil on the plug wires possibly causing the check engine/maint light. I would start with the valve cover and a tune up. That may solve all your issues.

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.

My 1996 honda accord hestites when I give it gas at the lights, I removed the spark plug wire and noticed oil on the end of my wires, as well as a crack, would this be the reason for the rough drive?


The oil at the spark plug end of your wire is caused by O ring gasket seals that can be bought in a kit for about 20 bucks-valve cover gasket replacement kit. When you remove the valve cover, you will see one for each spark plug hole. They may be melted to the valve cover and need picked off with small screwdriver. After this remove spark plugs to get rid of residual oil. This may be shorting the spark to the engine instead of letting it go through the plug since electricity always looks for the path of least resistance(conductor).

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!
