Default I have a 92 Honda accord that keeps getting oil on the spark plugs what could be some...

...reasons for that? My car won't start because the spark plugs are covered with oil!What are all my options to stop the oil from getting on my spark plugs?I just changed that valve cover gasket thing!I noticed when the mechanic changed my valve cover gasket he didnt put these rubber rings on anything he just left them out could that be a problem? So i keep reading about these rings being worn out what are they called and dose a rocket gasket have anything to do with this?I need to know where to put those rubber rinngs at!!!

MORE THAN LIKELY JUST A BAD VALVE COVER GASKET.MAKE SURE YOU REPLACE THE GROMMETS ALSO.

Are they wet on the spark side, in the cylinder, or the ceramic side, where the wire plugs onto it? If the second choice, then you have to replace the valve cover gaskets, as the seals for the plug holes are worn. If the other end, then either valve seals are bad, or the rings are worn and leaving too much oil in the combustion chamber.

You need new valve seals. It probably started smoking a little bit first then started to get worse. good luck -

If the level oil and spark plugs are OK the most common problem is the valves oil sealing, and the pistons rings if the vehicle have a hi miles.

could be the rings however a common problem on that motor is spark plug tube seal and from your description it sounds like thats what the mechanic should have changed but didnt.
