make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

Did you put Valve seals in the head???
Other than that the PCV is a good start...
But it sounds like the oil rings on the pistons to me.

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.

What cause my 2000 dodge neon to stop on me and now it wont even turn over. and all of the spark plugs is cover in oil?


it is possible that your neg battery terminal could be losing contact or coil could have stopped working and im sure the oil on the spark plugs has a bit to do with the running issue . You need to change the valve cover gasket make sure nothing is cracked clean up the valve cover and engine side surface install valve cover gaskets and bolts torque em down and see what happens youll probably have to replace the spark plugs or clean them up real good

Oil in most of my spark plug ports!


The fault is due to the valve cover gasket passing oil into the spark plug wells. There are circular seals under the valve cover around each spark plug well opening. These spark plug well seals come with the valve cover gasket set.

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,

I pulled a spark plug to change plugs and the spark plug wire boot was all wet from oil. The other three plugs were fine. The rest of the engine looked fine apart from the regular dirty engine look. No oil...


yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

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 plugs


Who ever told you it was the Valve cover gaskets was correct. On the valve cover gasket around where the spark plug goes down though the head there is a seal made onto the valve cover gasket called the spark plug well seals. when replacing the valve cover gasket it will come with these seals and it will take care of your oil leaking into spark plug holes. Hope this has helped and if you need anymore assistance I would love to help.
