Spark plugs do not leak oil. What you have is a valve cover gasket leak. This allows oil to run down on the plugs. Try slightly tightening the valve cover bolts. It that does no help, replace the gasket.Spark plugs do not leak oil. What you have is a valve cover gasket leak. This allows oil to run down on the plugs.

Valve cover gasket needs replacing




I have a '94 and did the same thing after I replaced the gasket. If it continues to leak oil by the plugs, re-torque the center bolts from the inside two out. If that doesn't work, get some gasket maker ($3) and smear it along the valve cover gasket inside the holes and wait for it to cure.


If it is a v6, you need to remove the upper ontake plenum to get acess to the rear three plugs. Not fun.


Oil on the outside of the spark plugs is caused by a leaking valve cover gasket. Replace the valve cover gasket. Oil on the electrode of the spark plugs indicates the engine is worn and is burning oil. The only fix for this is an engine rebuild.



oil leaking on your spark plugs in your Lincoln LS because you have a leaking valve cover gasket.



I had the same problem when i went to change my plugs. It was the rocker cover gasket


No. The valve cover gasket is leaking and should be replaced.


it is leaking from the valve cover gasket. when the car sit long enough, the oil will leak down to the plugs.


my son has a 98 stratus 2.4 liter was doing it also changed plugs an wires seems to run great now hope it helps!! it has 200k on it also


Probably your cam cover gasket (top of engine)leaking into the wells. You can use sealant instead of gasket


the valve cover gaskets are leaking. the valve cover gasket kits are cheep labor is expensive, 5 hour job!


We just changed soft plugs on a 2000 Stratus with a 2.5 liter V-6. There was a total of 6 soft plugs, three front and three on the back bank. They are tough to get at and not for those that are in a hurry. Do yourself a favor and take a look in a service manual before you start. Good luck, JP


Simple. There is a circular gasket for each spark plug between located between the valve cover and the engine. If they are not properly sealed, the oil from the top of engine will leak out of the valve cover and pool into the spark plug sockets. You must remove the oil BEFORE you remove the spark plugs. Anyway, the fix is purchase and install a new valve cover gasket and spark plug gaskets and use a gasket sealant.


Water pump, radiator, thermostat gasket, timing cover gasket, and freeze plugs are the most common.



Yes, if it leaks oil through and on to the spark plugs, it will foul them and cause a missfire.


either you have a bad valve cover gasket, a bad oil cap gasket, a crack in the valve cover, or the seals for the spark plugs have gone bad.
