Re: Engine Oil on spark plugs Help!!

Well I turn the pvc valve all the way to the right,but I cannot get it out I about broke the top tap so I stopped. Would changing the valve cover gasket be a power tran warranty thing? I know I would not be able to do this myself. I also put in a jet tsat I was reading the how too on it, I saw in the picture it has a weep hole where does that hole need to be or does it matter.Hemi _boss did you fix your gasket?

Thanks
Chris

The o-rings make the PCV Valve core difficult to remove. Rotate 1/4 turn, then GENTLY pry upward and twist counterclockwise.

They are a dealer item; about $35 (ugh). You can check o-rings for integrity and valve itself to ensure it "rattles". Then, re-insert it.

replace the valve cover gasket and pcv valve.



Just to point out, no arguments here... I know you know how this works because you said in your previous post, a lack of oil on the electrode would indicate that oil is not getting into the combustion chamber. Your plugs would be fouled up if you were buringing off oil and vapors from the crankcase especially if its just 1 or 2 cylinders because the computer stands no chance to balance that 1 cylinder out using the o2 sensors.


sounds good!

Re: Engine Oil on spark plugs Help!!

If its the one in the oil fill tube. it rotates 90 degrees counter clockwise to get it out (it points to the passanger fenderwell when its ready to be pulled out of its bore). When you put the new one in YOU MUST PUT OIL ON THE ORINGS! I usually just pull out the dipstick and use whats on the dipstick if I need to lube an oring. I promise you, you wont get it to seat all the way down when you install the new one and if it doesnt seat it wont turn (you will just break off the retainer into the housing).

The valve cover is just held on by 10mm bolts (iirc) there is nothing structural about it, nothing any more difficult that what you did to replace the spark plugs.

To get the plugs I have found having a wobble socket and just the right length extensions is key. I drop the socket down into the tube, followed by an extension then I attach the wobble socket followed by another extension or two... I have a set of snapon wobble plus sockets and have found them quite useful in tight areas. It allows some movement of the socket on the the extension so it doesnt need to be straight on. To get everything out once the plugs are loose its just a matter of taking it all back apart 1 piece at a time, patience is your friend!

weep hole always goes up 12 o'clock... never seen it any other way personally.

Well I got the PVC valve out it was covered in oil,I cleaned it up with carb cleaner the ball thing is moving freely it was moving freely all dirty with oil Do I need to get a new one or what? Also I looked into the intake its got alot of oil in it can that be cleaned out ? I cleaned the tb plates. What do you gus think.

Re: Engine Oil on spark plugs Help!!

i havent got mine fixed yet lol. but my advice is just replace the cheapest thing first and see if it fixes it if you're not sure what the problem is. you've had 3 different opinions on what's wrong with it so unless you wanna pay the dealer $90 per hour to do it for you, might as well just start replacing the stuff on your own lol.
