    probably just need new gaskets (not head gasket).

    :withstupid: Sounds about right to me. On a B series every single spark plug cylinder has its own little rubber o-ring to keep oil out, maybe thats bad/installed correctly. I'm sure its probably the same for anything honda, but I know for sure on the B.

    first thing, look down the plug chanber and see if you see an oil drip line, next look at the seals on each cyl and see if the gasket is sticking out, they should reach about 1-2mm into the chamber. First just try and tighten down the valve cover.

    And if they do, you WILL go to a dealership to get new ones.
