How to fix oil from getting in the spark plug chamber

Changed oil in bmw e36 now spark plug socket and spark plug are showing engine oil (old) Shop gave me wrong oil filter so have not started car yet as I do not have the right filter Also I changed air


IF there is a sleeve around the spark plugs then when replacing the plugs replace the seal under that sleave as well or rocker cover oil will leak out past the plug base.. If you want the correct oil filter you may have to buy genuine . Run fault codes to find the reason for rough idle . It may be a vacuum hose is off or cracked or loose.

Oil leaking into cylinder


"leaking into the top of the second cylinder on top of the spark plug wire
only this matter !! cure that.

some engines have spark well. are you saying the wells fill with oil?
if yes, you didnt buy a real valve cover sit, try FELPRO that
comes with the well seals , with kit.
skipping is misfire. if the boots get fill of oil, sure it will misfire, how can it not?

Ok, so I'm not an auto machanic, I've got a 1995 Honda Accord with a 2.2l 16 valve engine, the problem: went to change out the spark plugs, the rubber boots were covered on the outside with oil. I...


I'm no mechanic either, but... the oil is not coming from the plugs. Probably running down from the valve cover gasket. You were right not to remove plugs with that gunk in there.You could try to soak the oil out with a bit of old towel. Is there any oil on the head under the valve cover? Have you been adding a lot of oil? Of course just a little oil goes a long way when leaking. New valve cover gasket should fix it.

When your driving the car hesitates sometimes real bad and sometimes a little bit and when the car is idleing the engine hesitates a little bit


that can be anything from a bad spark plug to a bad spark plug wire. check your spark plugs, plug wires, coil pack or packs, and if nothing comes up there your timing blet or chain might have sliped.

Motor Oil in with spark plugs, backfiring and stalling.


hey i actually just dealt with this problem last week ona friends car. the oil in the center with the spark plugs is because you need a new valve gasket. not a cover unless its cracked just the gasket and it costs about 25 dollars at your local parts store. its very easy to install and a quick fix but try to get all the oil out of the center as you can and rub a little bit of old oil on the gasket before you install it. it helps stop dry rot. try this first and then see if the backfiring and stalling stops. if not, you may need to change your spark plugs again even if you already have because chances are the oil thats already in the hole has burned up the spark plug. so give your spark plugs a good check while you change your valve gasket.
