Help Please :(

Postby MrMcQuacker » Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:07 am

I just did a spark plug change and noticed that my 2 and 3 spark plugs were full of oil. Car drives fine, I researched a bit but could not find anything specific for out motors. Do I just change out my valve cover gasket? I have a 3gen 3sgte if that matters.

Also from the looks of it inside the hole. It looks like oil is seeping through from above the spark plug not after.

Try a new valve cover gasket set. There are 6 points where fipk is used so pick up a tube of that when you order your gaskets.

the metal spark plug tubes unscrew from the head and can leak. remove them, rtv the threads and screw them back in. also the round gaskets on the valve cover tend to leak as well so change those.

ST185 gasket kit won't work on the ST205. Compare:

You should be able to get what you need from kbox pretty easily:
