    Hubby has just serviced our 2005 FR-V, and on changing the spark plugs, he discovered oil in the no.1 and no. 4 chambers. He thinks the rocker cover seal is leaking? Does anyone know if there is a comprehensive gasket kit available? Many thanks. :Smile:

    The seals for the spark plug holes are individual ones, I'd advise replacing the rocker cover seal also.

    This video shows you the seals that need to be changed (skip to 6:30 for the spark plug seal info) :-

    Sorry to hijack
    How did you upload the video with it starting at 6mins 30? I was expecting to jump through.
    I imagine oil on the top of true plugs would slowly effect tic over?

    When generating the youtube link, move the slider to the location you want the video to start, right click on the slider and get the link with that as start position.

    Oil on your plugs will ruin the coil and cause misfire issues. I think there's also risk of fire !
