Oil leaking onto nearside spark plug (2006 Citroen Picasso 2.0l automatic)

Post by Scott1 Sando »

On a general service of my Citroen Xsara Picasso 2.0l petrol Automatic, while replacing my spark plugs, I've discovered oil all over the bottom of the nearside spark plug, and a little came out on the bottom of my spark plug socket. From what I can gather, replacement of the cylinder head gasket and spark plug tube seals is required. I can find in my Haynes manual the information on replacing the two cylinder gaskets, but nothing on replacing spark plug tube seals (is that the correct terminology for the UK?). Has anyone any pointers on the spark plug seal part numbers and how to replace, thank you.

No need to reply.

I've managed to solve the oil problem myself last night with two new cylinder head gaskets. After a drive this morning and checking the spark plugs after, the spark plug tubes are bone dry.
