1992 Acura Vigor Question: Im getting oil on the spark plug wire & on bottom of spark plug itself will that

Answer 1
Yes that will cause a misfire. Im thinking your plugs are in the middle of the valve cover. If so you need to replace valve cover gasket and do tune up. -
Comment 1
I did a tune up on it. Made it a lil better. But still getting oil in spark plug. what causes the oil to get undre the spark plug? -
Comment 2
The valve cover gasket is almost surely your problem. Only after I actually had it in front of me could I be more sure. -
Answer 2
yes repl valve cover gasket and the plug hole seals that come with gasket set, thats whats leaking -
Answer 3
Spark plug 'tube seals'. Some gasket sets don't automatically come with them. Best to get a complete gasket set with the bolt/nut grommets too. Factory parts are best and I strongly suggest you clean everything with brake-clean extremely well and put the gasket on dry & do not over-torque. -
