    Hi, I took the plugso0ut of the ECU (called PCM) by honda and one of the multiplugs is covered in oil!
    Actual oil! with no indication of where it has come from.

    Has anyone ever experienced anything like this?


  2. Nope, never come across this, it's a strange one.

    Alan that is not normal are your sure it not dielectric grease which is know melted to a oily reside. Honda dealers were instructed on older Honda's to coat them with this stuff to ensure corrosion did not take hold.

    Could you take a picture of this and if you can have a good look around to see if there is no oil leaks ?

    what your seeing is probably just old dielectric grease.
