Spark Plug Well Oil Leak Fix, Honda Accord – EricTheCarGuy

Spark Plug Well Oil Leak Fix, Honda Accord – EricTheCarGuy I know I’ve promised this one for some time so here it is. If you have this problem I recommend replacing the seals in the valve cover first and then coming back to recheck for oil in the spark plug wells in about a month or so, if you find oil then I recommend performing this procedure. I can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure everything is lined up correctly when you reinstall the rocker assembly, bad things can happen if you don’t. — Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum Visit my Facebook Page: —ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.

  • Slowdown Timez says:

    ok thanks for the vid youre awesome bro, BUT theres one part that confused me like crazy and that the torque wrench part, ive looked up the values and mostly found that the
    12mm-16 footpounds and the 10mm-9ft just like u sated in the bubble…but then why when you went to tighten the bolts u set it to 22 the first ones then less for the others???

    This guy is careless. It’s obvious he is pressed on time and it’s not his car. His gloves were dirty when he touched the mating surfaces for the O-rings. It’s like a surgeon who did not wash hands after changing his car’s oil. Never use air tools on these kind of repairs if you care about your car. Even loosening those bolts with air gun can damage the treads. It’s just he would not tell anyone, just like most mechanics. Liked the amount of content covered but did not like the careless job.

    Oops! U make it look so easy.

  • gmcls69 says:

    U make look so easy. I don’t need them manual books. They don’t have enough info. Keep up the good videos. N stay dirty.

  • CjkPHD says:

    Where did you get the o-rings from? And what are they called, valve cover gaskets? Or lower valve cover gaskets?

  • Lithoushine says:

    1:26 – 1:43 … story to my life lol : )

  • shayne80 says:

    Eric, you rock. Love all your instructionals. However, I jumped into pulling the rocker assy out of old wagon without consulting your videos. I see that when you removed the assembly, you kept all of the bolts in it. I did not and now the rocker pivot shaft seems to have slid on me. How do I re-align the bolt holes on the shaft?
    Keep up the good work. Staying dirty!

  • Dclovescl says:

    it is very common for a honda distributor to leak oil. its the o-ring on the shaft. basically get a new distributor, or take the time and find the o-ring.

  • J.F. King says:

    Shop towels sometimes leave fibers behind that may prevent a good seal.

  • cody90743 says:

  • Ken Stouffer says:

    I also noticed oil in my spark plug tubes when I last changed them (’87 Integra Special).
    The oil doesn’t get into the cylinder past the plugs… so are the tube seals really important or can I wait a while?
    Thanks, Jim
