1992 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

i have changed valve cover oil seals for spark wells but still see oil, seeping at bottom of well and the sides of spark plugs are full of oil. Spark tip is white. Get a white smoke. How can the oil seeping be prevented. Should I rebuild the engine or change it

If any of the steel tubes are loose, then they will need to be replaced.

They are pressed it, you need a special tool to remove.

Check to see if they are loose, if not then as RAZ said the cover could be warped, or tube seals were installed incorrectly.

Go to junkyard and get a valve cover from 90-92 Corolla or Geo Prizm. I have seen several at local junk yard.
