The valve cover gasket & tube seals need to be replaced, this is where the oil is coming from. It would be a good idea to replace the spark plugs & boots also.

Does anyone know the spark plug wire order on a d15b7


Oil is leaking into your spark plug holes from the valve chamber. It's not a good idea to leave the oil in the spark plug holes, as it can pool high enough to damage the rubber boots of your spark plug wires, will make the plug hole really messy, and it may eventually become a fire hazard. Below is how to fix it.

Honda's preferred spark plug location means that the plugs (and their wires) must pass through deep recesses in the top of the valve covers to get to the combustion chamber. This gives better plug placement in the combustion chamber, and more zoom for your Honda. It creates a small problem though: Under the valve cover, all around the spark plug recesses, is an open space that is constantly being showered with oil, and that oil will get into the spark plug recesses unless something is done to keep it out. Honda does this by sealing any joins between parts with little rubber donuts (AKA "grommets").

The rubber donuts eventually get old and stop sealing, letting oil seep into the spark plug holes and puddle there. The cure is replacement of all four (or six), along with the valve cover gasket itself (themselves) at the same time. It's an easy project for anyone who's done more than just oil changes.

However, there's a fly in the ointment here: Certain Honda engines, specifically the 4-valve-per-cylinder, single-overhead-cam ones (such as the D15B that's used in many Civics), have an additional rubber seal under the one I just mentioned! This one also gets old and starts leaking, but these are a LOT harder to replace! Not a job for a beginner!

NOTE: The rubber parts under discussion here are not actually red and orange, they're black, I just used colors to make it clearer which was what.

I have a 1993 ford festiva its a good little car it runs good when the engine is cold but when it warms up it sputters and dies on me when it dies it fires right back up like nothing ever happened It...


If it has an automatic choke, this will keep it revving more when the engine is cold and less when hot. Maybe adjust the idle setting screw on the carburettor so it revs slightly more. Try that before it is running hot. Only increase the revving gradually to the stage where stalling would be avoided when hot. Gradually so that there is not too much revving when cold. Adjusting and testing over a few runs could be a good strategy

When idleing at a complete stop it dies


Check air cleaner. put some Lucas injector cleaner in the gas tank or a product called mystery oil. Also at night with all the lights off open the hood and watch to see if their is any sparking between spark plug wires.

1990 regal starts, runs for 2 to 3 min then dies, changed fuel filter, crank sensor, coil packs, it has 45 pounds of prs. to rail. im stumped


hi, please check you oil level, ( on level ground). when the car is running place an old rag in front of you and take off the oil filler cap (be careful not to get near the fan, fan belt) if no oil comes out of the filler hole possible fault: oil pick-up pipe (in sump partial block), / oil filter in sump ( blocked), oil pump worn, oil relief valve (returning oil back into the sump), spring weak / broken. the (E C U) ENGINE CONTROL UNIT has many sensors that can stop the engine: but try cleaning the (EGR) ENGINE GAS RECIRCLING VALVE, this valve recycles gas back in to the engine, ( must be CLEANED with BRAKE FLUID) this is a VERY DIRTY job, as this gets block with carbon (EXHAUST PARTICULES). the E C U will detect all of these sensors: the (ECT), TOP OF ENGINE engine coolant temperature sensor rough tick over, (HO2), EXHAUST DOWN PIPE, heated oxygen sensor checks mixture of fuel, can adjust air / fuel, it tries to keep car going / may flood engine. (M A F) mass air flow, adjusts fuel / air retio this sensor can so much fuel to the engine it may flood it. flooded engine mean WET spark plugs. i would put it on dianostic machine to check these out before paying for extra sensors. gerry

How to repair oil leak in spark plug hole


Do you have oil puddling in the plug hole or do you have oil blowing out a spark plug hole?
Is the plug fowled? maybe caused by running to rich, wrong plug, or a timing problem.

Oil light turns on at idol, and almost dies at idol has oil


Replace your fuel filter and airfilter. If this doesn't work - you may need a new coil pack or cap and rotor if it has a distributor; if this is the case, change the spark plugs and plug wires.

Sounds like misfire. Change spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor , fuel and air filters. Check for oil in spark plug holes. if oil found change valve cover gasket spark plug orings. they can leak oil into spark plug holes and cause misfire.

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.
