Question about 1992 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

My 1992 toyota carolla 4 door car starts hard. The left spark plug area fills up with engine oil. Would this be as simple as replacing the valve cover gasket or would it be a more serious problem, such as a bad head gasket?

The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

You need a new valve cover gasket set. This will come with seals that fit around the spark plug tubes.

My Mazda 626 is running rough and has sparks coming from the sides of the spark plug leads also i can hear air coming from the engine bay.


Remove you spark plug leads and see if they are soaked with oil. If so you will have to remove your valve covers and replace the valve cover gaskets. They tend to leak oil into the area of the spark plug holes. You will have to replace the plug wires also. Just replace them one at a time so you will not losthe firing order.Hope this helps.

Spark plug well filling with oil.


a new valve cover gasket and o-rings around the wells should have cured this...did you clean the old o-rings off the valve cover completely before installing new ones? this is a common problem with these models.....i would re-check my gaskets and mateing surfaces. valve cover gaskets and spark plug well o-rings are relatively low cost. the spark plug is tight, correct? write back with an update!
