An oil leak at the spark plug area (spark plug tubes) can be caused by a failing valve cover sealing rubber and/or camshaft holder o-ring. The sealing rubber and o-ring will need to be replaced to address this issue.

    I have had this problem twice in the past couple of years. It seems like this is inherent to CRX's.
