Oil in spark park plugs

You have leaking spark plug grommet/seals under the valve cover, and most likely being a 91, also have leaking cam tower o-rings. The first is just a matter of replacing the valve cover gasket set. The second requires removal of the cam tower/rocker arm shaft assy. to access the o-ring seals between them and the head. If you are not an experience mechanic, I do not recommend doing this yourself. It is easy to damage parts and bend valves if you don't seat it properly.

Do you have replace spark plug tubes when replacing gromets and valve cover gasket on nissan alti mma 05 there was oil in the spark plugs........

IF the tubes are not deformed it should not be necessary. Most problems come from not replacing the grommets and seals every time the plugs are removed.

How to change spark plug gaskets on a 1999 ford escort sport

The spark plugs do no thave gaskets they are a tapered fit into the cylinder head. Do you mean the seals (2.0 DOHC) that keep oil out of the plug wells, if so you must remplace the valve cover gasket, a very simple job on this engine.

No fire at the spark plugs

If you have a 2.2 L , 5SFE engine, chances are high that the distributor is faulty. I've replaced mine every 3 years. I started reading about this, and found out that oil gets inside of it due to a seal going bad. According to others, the bearing for the distributor gets oiled from oil mist due to it's location under the valve cover. The seal fails and kills your coil or pickups. It's an all in one unit, so any one part failing takes the whole thing down. You'll know if your distributor is the same as mine if you do not see a 5th spark plug wire, you will only see 4 spark plug wires, a 2 prong plug, and a 4 prong plug. The 2 prong plug is the 12 Volt supply to the coil primary. The 4 prong plug is the pickup feed to the ECU.

Found oil in the spark plug housing

U got a damage oil seals in the plug housing! Replacing it, needs to take off the VALVE COVER and spark plugs. Check how the seals seat on ur valve cover, sometimes it needs to be cleaned up and put a silicone gasket maker, that will seal everything!
