    URGENT HELP REQUIRED! Oil on spark plug!!!

    Just thought I'd clean my plugs today as drinking loads of fuel and the plugs were soaked in oil but only on top of the plug. There was no oil at all where the spark happens.

    What does this mean? It is a major problem?? Is the car safe to drive??

    Please help!!!

    Rocker cover gasket. Nothing to worry about as everyone has had this happen on a zlet i am guessing.

    Just remember when you buy the gasket make sure it comes with o-rings as you will need them. I bought one from ebay, heard they were crap and would leak instantly, 5 months or so on and still not one drop leaked out. Always use a bead of silicone when fitting a new gasket to seal properly, as these new rubber things are shite.

    Vauxhall - £15 or so, Ebay - £5

    inside the rocker/cam cover. ten of them i think. they clip into the underside of the cam cover, flip it over and you will see them. use a pick to remove the old ones and renew
