I noticed that the holes which house the spark plugs on my 93 accord are full with oil. I had changed the spark plugs over a year ago and noticed this problem then, but I didn't really care. I guess I've raised my standards
I should note that the car is, to the best of my knowledge, not burning oil. I have a tiny oil leak somewhere, but not to the point where it leaves the puddle on the ground or even makes a noticeable decline in the oil level.
What are the possible causes of oil filling the spark plug holes? This doesn't seem like a huge problem; the oil is obviously not making it's way past the threads of the spark plug, but it's still not correct and needs attention.
Car has 282,000 miles on it. I have been told that a valve cover gasket could be a problem, but I thought I'd dig a little deeper than that.
And an update to threads I have started recently: Since I've posted several threads here about a coolant leak I've been battling, I guess I should say that the problem has been resolved. It was a hairline crack in the upper plastic portion of the radiator, made evident when I squeezed the upper radiator hose and saw coolant oozing out. I replaced the radiator and both the upper and lower hoses. This has has remedied the problem entirely.
