There is a seal between the valve cover and the cylinder head. all you have to do is replace the valve cover gasket and spark plug hole seals, its not to bad of a job al the guys in my shop would be fighting over who gets to do it, have fun.

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.

Is there supposed to be oil on the 2,3,4 spark plugs when you change them?


If there is oil in the spark plug tubes than the valve cover is leaking. It should be changed to prevent the rubber boots from bloating and ruining the wires/coils (if its a coil over ignition). If the boots of the wires/coils are soaked they should be replaced as well. This will prevent misfire issues/poor performance in the future.

Cause of oil in sparkplug tube?


1.your valve cover's spark plug chamber seal is leaking. Which requires removing the valve covers and replacing the gaskets and seals. 2. Excessive oil spills on to the valve cover and ignition coils when adding oil.

**This excess oil on the plug boots can cause the coils to short and eventually fail.

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.
