You need to replace the spark plug tube seals in the valve cover. Very easy once you get the valve cover off. Make sure you get the valve cover gasket kit that includes the tube seals. Victor Reinz makes it: Part number VS50059

When I removed #4 sparkplug there is oil on sparkplug hole on a 2000 Kia sportage


If oil is on the spark plug tip then it could be from worn valve stems or from worn piston rings. When you accelerate away from the traffic lights and the engine blows a lot of greyish smoke then this is a sign of worn parts.
If the oil is leaking into the spark plug hole, then it could be leaking from the tappet cover, either the tappet cover bolts are loose or the tappet cover gasket is faulty.

My 2005 Chevy Cavalier is severely leaking oil from a bolthole on the bottom of the oil pan. It is not the oil plug hole and there are a few holes like it without bolts in them but there is only one...


SOUND LIKE HOLE IN OIL PAN IF THE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG NOT LOOSE OR MISSING AND THE UPPER PAN BOLTS HOLES NOT MISSING A BOLT CAUSE LEAKING.MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE HOLE IN THE OIL PAN.

My light says ignition coil b. also the primary and secondary.......what is the primary/sec / AT FIRST IT SAYED #6 misfire. also it still has a slight miss at idle and crussin in overdrive . Can you please...


It sounds like you need a coil for # 6 cylinder .LS's have a issue with the valve cover seals leaking oil into the spark plug holes and causing a misfire if this is the case you have to replace all the gaskets for the valve covers clean out the oil and might as well do sparkplugs then too. Its more of a dealer repair then. If no oil in that cylinder try replacing coil and spark plug.

Oil leaked into the sparkplug tube from the round valve cover seal at the top of the tube. Replace valve cover gasket with spark plug tube seals and problem will be solved.

1997 honda acccord check engine light will come on and starts sputter real bad


This sounds like bad sparkplug wires, pull wires off the plugs and see if oil is on wires, this is common on these cars the valve cover gasket goes bad and oil leaks into sparkplug holes and then it misfires, if theres oil in holes replace the wires and the valve cover gasket with the tube seals,

Oil leaking into sparkplug holes on rubber boots


Buy a new valve cover gasket set (and a small tube of silicon high temp sealer). It comes with new rubber seals for each sparkplug hole, and the cover perimeter.Use a little silicon glue on the gaskets to hold them in place. Take your time,do the work with a cold engine in a shaded area. Clean all the oil off the wires and make sure all the old gasket rubber is cleaned off.And check to make sure before you put the cover back on that no old gasket pieces are in the engine.

I have oil in the sparkplugs


You may need new oil rings on your pistons. Have you checked your compression? Have you checked for any gasket leaks? How new is your plugs? You may also want to try a synthetic oil or 10w 30 instead of 5W.
