I found some oil in my spark plug well

Recommended Posts

Changing out my spark plugs to hopefully fix my rough idle, I found the rear passenger side plug had some oil in the well. The other three were perfectly dry. I had a p0302 (cylinder 2 misfire) come up, but correct me if I'm wrong isn't cylinder 2 the front drivers side? I'm going to try to get the o ring replaced asap, but any other advice would be appreciated

Yes, #2 is front drivers side.


Plugs will last about 73,000 miles but should be replaced every 60,000 miles.



I think the valve cover needs to come off to replace that seal...?

These are from my change, it's weird I was getting a Dylan's 2 misfire but it was 3 that was the contaminated well. Definitely running a bit smoother but still needs some work, injectors next. Maybe valves at the same time but finding time is difficult. Might go with a shop if it's too long of a process
