the phillips head screws that hold down the valve cover are not up to par. Two's r us sell hexbolts (with appropriate allen key) to replace these bolts to properly torque them down. You can take your old ones to lowes or other hardware store and get some there too, but it's just more convenient to just buy a package without having to go out and source them. Plus shipping is very quick from them so it' snot like it'll save time unless you wanted to do it right here, right now.freddysmr2 said:(I recomend the two's are us bolt set they are awesome. )
I really dont understand this??
How about there is oil in only one spark plug?!?NoShoes said:The valve cover gasket can leak, allowing oil to get in the spark plug wells, When you pull the plug, the oil travels downward and drips off the tip of the plug, making it appear that your plugs are getting all of that oil from inside the motor. If there really was oil in the combustion chamber, then it would BURN along with the gasoline and appear differently. It wouldn't look "wet".
The best solution to fixing a leaky valve cover gasket is to replace the gasket (of course) AND replace the screws with BOLTS. 2S R US sells a replacement bolt set.
