1998 Honda Accord Question: "what causes oil around the outside of the spark plug"
Answer #1csubak30 August 15, 2014, 15:35Master
Need to get a valve cover gasket replacement set. The smaller o-ring style gaskets in the set go aroung the spark plug ports. Yours are worn which is why oil is seaping in around the top of the plugs.
