You need to check the contact, (right next to the magneto:) and then if that fails, check the magneto.
If it's old, or worn, it will not be producing the correct charge.
Then you will have to play with the timing adjustment.
Either on the spark plug, or the contact and magneto gap.
That should do it ;)

1990 honda accord dx/ oil on spark plugs


i put gasket maker around the spark plug gaskets cause honda are notorious for oil leaks on the spark plugs

Ok, so I'm not an auto machanic, I've got a 1995 Honda Accord with a 2.2l 16 valve engine, the problem: went to change out the spark plugs, the rubber boots were covered on the outside with oil. I...


I'm no mechanic either, but... the oil is not coming from the plugs. Probably running down from the valve cover gasket. You were right not to remove plugs with that gunk in there.You could try to soak the oil out with a bit of old towel. Is there any oil on the head under the valve cover? Have you been adding a lot of oil? Of course just a little oil goes a long way when leaking. New valve cover gasket should fix it.

Dropped power washer into pool. Is washer fixable and how much. Is it worth getting fixed or buy new one?


This is a relatively easy SELF correction process. Mind you a pool is FRESH water.

1. Drain all gas by remove the hose that connects to carb and completly drain the gas tank. (If there is an in line fuel filter or glass debris bowl, change filter / empty bowl.
2. Remove float bowl nut and bowl and purge water. Spray carb with carb cleaner while float bowl is removed. Paying particular attention to the float bowl nut thread area (throat)
3. Drain Oil. AFTER step 5.
4. Pressure Pump oil should be fine as it is not vented. (depending on pump installed but none of them are vented.
5. Remove spark plug and put about 1 ounce gas directly into the cylinder IGN OFF! Pull recoil and let gas exit spark plug hole. Reinstall a NEW spark plug BPR5ES or similar
6. Service engine oil
7. Fan dry the unit over night. Simple floor fan will do. Leave the gas cap OFF / float bowl open overnight during Fan Air dry.
8. Next morning service gas tank
9. Select fuel on and let a small amout of gas leak before installing the float bowl and nut making sure the float bowl gsket is installed against the top of the float bowl.

Final testing time... Ign. on.. Test spark first. Spark check good. FUEL ON. Start.

Just make sure to change oil again in 10 hours. Water in oil will cause the oil to appear milky.

You can do this. Worst case the electronic ignition module fails. (They are cheap... !) Most of the time the coil will not need to be changed.

That is water de-contamination 101 and you just completed the course. Give it your best shot. It beats buying a new one and yes it is worth repairing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

P.S. Oil the TIRE / WHEEL bearings.

Oil pools in Spark plug wire hole on Cyl 1 & 4 causing misfire.


There is an oil seal for each hole for the plugs. This requires a little work. You need to take out the cover of the head. Normally you should see the seals underneath the cover just surrounding the holes.

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.

91 honda accord spark plug oil and stalling


There's another set of seals below the rocker arm assembly that will leak into the spark plug holes. This is a fairly big job to fix, maybe best to keep draining the oil out periodically. Bearings are probably fine.
May need an idle valve, but they can clog with carbon- I'd take it off and check that first. Cleaning that out just may solve that.

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!
