    i let my friend drive my car today and he came back and sed that the car was idling funny.i sed it was only firing off 3 cylinders and to pop the hood.the # 3 spark plug had blow'n out of its housing.i pushed it in the pulled it back out.the plug was drowning in oil.my friend sed the it was just a gasket that need to be replaced, If this is the case what gasket kit will work. a 95 and up gsr gasket kit? i hope to god he didnt fry my rings. he sed it happend a couple of time on his old skoool toyota and it was from using a breather tub instead of running the hose to the intake"wich i hade on up until 45 min ago" does this sound just like a bad seal? i know that my valve cover seal is done allready.

    Oil in the spark plug well just means the seal on the valve cover is gone. There's no way to get oil above you spark plug from a bad piston ring.

    well figures.i fixed the leak into the spark plugs but ever since i bought the car my valve cover leaked,and no the integra valve cover gasket did not work.it was slightly to big and just wouldnt work,well $30 dollers spent on 2 pennies worth of rubber what a day.

    Did you get the one for the B18C GSR or the LS. The vtec Integra will fit, I garrantee you, I am using one. The LS intgra will not fit. That's why I said, let me quote me...
