Oil Around Spark Plugs..

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I changed the spark plugs this weekend on my car and notice that around two of the spark plugs there was some oil, looked like engine oil. I am guessing that some kind of seal/gasket needs replacing, can anyone tell mewhich gasket/seal it is that I need to replace please and also whether it is
something that you could easily do yourself?. I mopped up all the oil that was there before putting the new plugs in.

Also the boot release/open button on the dashboard seems to only work intermittently, anyone know how to cure this too please?

My car is 2001 mk1 1.6 focus, thanks in advance guys :)

Chances are your cam cover gasket is leaking slightly. Quite easy to replace providing the plastic cover itself is not warped
