96 acura tl oily plugs


and by oily i mean abolutly soaked. maybe not the importat part but more the holes they sit down in. anyone know what is typically the cause on that? its an OHC motor so the plugs sit down in the head but all the way through the valve cover. when i pulled them out the holes had about .25" or so of oil just sitting in there. i know that its probly just a gasket issue but im not sure which one or how to check. thoughts?

You can, but make sure you use the high temp paint...And, make sure it is very clean, and you have used a fine grit sand paper to prepar the surface. That will allow the paint to grab onto it better.

By the way, that was the lowest price I could find on the gaskets. smile
