See if you spark plug wires got oil soaked. If so replace wires 1 at a time. and replace valve cover gasket.
Also check other wires.

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.

Oil in spark plug well 02 nissan maxima what could cause this


On the DOHC: The Spark Plug Tube Seals (Washers) on the Valve Cover has developed a leak.
Install new seals.
Remove the Valve Cover to Install the Seals.
If the Valve Cover Gasket have not been replaced recently, go ahead and replace them as well, making sure you clean thoroughly BOTH surfaces before installing any new Seal Washers and Gasket.

Let me me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me on FixYa.com!

ps...I'm replacing (for free!) the Valve Cover Gaskets today on a 1994 Nissan Maxima. Looks like we both will have fun!
If you need the Valve Cover Torque Sequence / Specs let me know on the Comment Section of this Post.

Rear engine oil leak....


Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

I have been told that I have a valve cover leak. Will it harm the motor if I continue to drive it? How much does it cost to repai? The model is 2000 Nissan Xterra


You can do the repair yourself. Your valve covers leaking will result in you losing oil because it's not making it's way to the oil pan. You probably won't hurt the engine if you keep the oil level constant, but you can replace the gaskets yourself. It's a bit of a job, but not too bad. You'll proably have to remove the intake manifolds and replace these gaskets before the valve covers. The valve covers are just plastic covers for the valves-one big box. Put new gaskets in place and reinstall the reverse of removal.

2001 dodge 2500 4x4 high oil consumption


These are know for having a leaking gasket on the bottom of the intake that will cause oil consumption. To test for this take the pcv valve out of the passenger side valve cover and the crankcase filter out of the driver side. With the engine running put your thumbs over the holes in both valve covers. It should build pressure. If you feel it pulling a vacuum, the gasket is leaking. You have to remove the intake and flip it over on a bench to change the pan gasket on the bottom.

Valve cover gasket leaking


When you buy the valve cover set, it will include the spark plug well "O" rings. Simply remove the valve cover and on the underside of the valve cover, you'll see the "O" rings that need replaced and you'll see exactly how the valve cover gasket itself fits.
