OIL IN SPARK PLUGS

Honda Civic

I own a 1988 honda civic 4 door with 271,000km on it. Yesterday we changed the oil and afterward we checked the plugs to find that 2 of them had been soaked in oil. How can oil get into the spark plugs? And what could you do to fix this?

There is a seal for each of the plug tubes and by taking off the valve cover you can get to the seals. Replace the valve cover and the seals usually come with it. Put everything in. They eventually will leak so I suggest fixing it soon.
