Default 1996 accord LX - oil loss

2.2 liter

380 000 km.... I am not complaining.. I love this car. It's like Herbie or
something..

Anyway, it looks like a couple of the spark plug tube seals are leaking.. Is
this an easy job? (valve pan gasket,etc,) or is there some bizzaro thing I
need to know before I get started.. Herbie has a way of throwing curve balls
whenever I attempt to fix him... Like the time back in '99 I thought the
brake rotor replacment job would take 30 minutes...

Comments welcome.

BD

simple gasket replacement. easy.

and don't strip the whole freakin' head down like elle did on her
d-series motor. it's only the gaskets that get disturbed when you do
the valve lash that need to be replaced.
