How to replace spark plug tube seals on a 91 honda

One cylinder has oil on the top side of the spark plug along with the plug wire. I saw some others responses as far as some possibilities of what could be wrong. I could try the spark plug no-fouler on that plug but I also was curious to know how to replace the plug tube seals.

Does anyone know the spark plug wire order on a d15b7


Oil is leaking into your spark plug holes from the valve chamber. It's not a good idea to leave the oil in the spark plug holes, as it can pool high enough to damage the rubber boots of your spark plug wires, will make the plug hole really messy, and it may eventually become a fire hazard. Below is how to fix it.

Honda's preferred spark plug location means that the plugs (and their wires) must pass through deep recesses in the top of the valve covers to get to the combustion chamber. This gives better plug placement in the combustion chamber, and more zoom for your Honda. It creates a small problem though: Under the valve cover, all around the spark plug recesses, is an open space that is constantly being showered with oil, and that oil will get into the spark plug recesses unless something is done to keep it out. Honda does this by sealing any joins between parts with little rubber donuts (AKA "grommets").

The rubber donuts eventually get old and stop sealing, letting oil seep into the spark plug holes and puddle there. The cure is replacement of all four (or six), along with the valve cover gasket itself (themselves) at the same time. It's an easy project for anyone who's done more than just oil changes.

However, there's a fly in the ointment here: Certain Honda engines, specifically the 4-valve-per-cylinder, single-overhead-cam ones (such as the D15B that's used in many Civics), have an additional rubber seal under the one I just mentioned! This one also gets old and starts leaking, but these are a LOT harder to replace! Not a job for a beginner!

NOTE: The rubber parts under discussion here are not actually red and orange, they're black, I just used colors to make it clearer which was what.

My accord cylider 2 misses at idle what can be he problem?


If you replace the plugs,the ones that were made for your vehicle. And possibly spark plug wires, it should make quite a difference. Good-Day! It could be a injector making its rough idle on cylinder 2, But do above first!

Oil in spark plugs


If you saw fresh oil, you were looking at valve cover gasket-seals leaking into the spark plug tubes.

Oil is coming out top of moter where oilsendingunitis


If you are referring to tubes as the tube where the spark plugs are installed then you probably have worn out gaskets at the base of the tubes. If you pull the spark plug wire out and remove a spark plug, you'll probably find the plug is soaked in oil. I suspect you'll have to remove the valve cover to replace these gaskets/seals.

There is engine oil in the spark plug well of No1 cylinder (the well is about 10-12cm long and the oil is almost up to the top of the spark plug). I'm guessing there is a seal or seals between the cylnder...


Valve cover gasket , this is a common problem and its not the cylinder head it is held in by 6 bolts and is common to leak in to sparkplug area and causes misfire, your spark plugs wires are considered oil soak and you might as well get those replaced,

My 91 honda civic has alot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust, and have oil on the spark plug in the #3 cylinder not sure what the problem is (bad vaulve/seal)??? one month prior to problem blew...


I'll tell you what few might be problems
Oil on spark plug could be:

1. bad cylinder rings 2. value seals
For Value Seals you will take off head again and then take off value over. Take all (Lifters or Cam) and springs off and you will see seal rings in each of values.
For cylinder rings, you will maybe need to take motor out and take head off, oil pan and rod bearing unbolts to get cylinder out to replace new rings. Or you can try do that without motor out. just take oil pan off under the car.
Try change oil with 1 qt of Lucas Oil and 4 or 5 normal oil. Best oil is Castol High Mileage
Lucas Oil should help stop leaking oil inside the cylinder. Or another kind bottle called (Stop Smoke) at auto store.

Have oil leaking into one spark plug hole will valve cover gasket and spark plug seals fix this? this is a 2000 four cyl honda.


Yes. The valve covers have seals that seal around the spark plug tubes where the plug wires go down through the valve cover. A valve cover set should come with the spark plug tube seals. This is a common problem with Honda. I also recommend replacing the plug wires because the rubber boot can get saturated with oil and cause a misfire. Sometimes it may look like the boot is clean when you wipe it off, but the oil is still in the pores and can cause the boot to allow the spark to arc over to the spark plug tube. Most of the time the ceramic on the plugs gets messed up also. This can also cause a misfire. If the plugs have any brown or black discoloration that does not easily wipe off with a rag, then I also recommend replacing the plugs. The discoloration is caused by carbon. Carbon is highly electrically conductive. This will allow the spark to travel down the side of the ceramic to the metal base of the spark plug.

My 1992 Honda civic is missing on one cylinder, has compression,has spark and I replaced the fuel injector, what could be wrong


I had the same problem, and I found it by running the car in a low lighted area. I saw the spark jumping out of the #1 cylinder wire to the top of my metal valve cover. I replaced my wires and all was well. My wires had long plastic boots that inserted into aluminum tubes. It was an over head cam motor, so there was quite a reach to get to the plug. Anyway, take the wire off, put a spark plug in it. (not the one in the cylinder, leave it there.) get a new plug, or old plug. lay the wire so that the spark plug tip is touching metal. start your car and look to see if the spark is jumping across the gap of the plug or jumping out earlier somewhere along the wire.

after purchasing replacement spark plugs and wires and making sure to have them correctly gapped use a 5/8 spark plug socket remove one at a time and replace in that order to make sure you dont mess up firing order gently remove boot on the first plug then unscrew plug place new plug in secure wire by snapping boot onto plug if theres oil in your cylinder youll need to replace tube seals common problem with hondas seal kit comes with valve cover gasket its fairly simple.
replace all of them the same way one at a time.
