I have a 01 2.8 and I found oil in spark plug wells 1, 2, and 3. I did the valve cover gasket earlier this and I have a brand new breather hose since my old one broke. I am also loosing a good amount of oil every month. Any ideas?
i did my valve cover gaskets myself also...no matter how careful you are.....you have to run your finger along the outside of the valve cover to make sure your seals are sitting properly....it is extremely easy pinch around the outside....your true problem lies with the inner gasket though...that is the one that allows leaks into the spark plugs. Did you replace those as well? they usually come with the gasket kit. Did you line the contact surface with a thin layer of that adhesive type paste? forgot what its called...hehe
I did but I guess I wasn't careful enough haha. I plan on ordering a new gasket and doing it again. I'm pretty sure it is the inner one though because I haven't found any leaks around the outside, just in the wells.
