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 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

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).

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!

Tune up and Spark Plugs have oil on them?


On the first part, it sounds like you have a valve cover leak.
If you are going to adjust the valves, you will have to remove the cover to adjust them.
I would suggest picking up a repair manual for the proper procedure for adjusting the valves, and the clearances.

Please expalin the gear shift problem again.
It's slightly confusing.

Thanks
