How to change the O-ring on spark boot?

Recommended Posts

I changed all six spark plugs during week-end and found the spark plug in cylinder#1 was very oilily. I read some threads in here which talked about the o-rings in spark boot needs to be replace. My questions are:

1. Do I need to open the cam cover?

2. What replacement parts I need to buy and where to buy them?

3. I have P1124 reading from CEL every one or two weeks , are they any relate from this leaked?

Thanks.

I changed the plugs on a Boxstir. I wonder how hard it was to pull the spark plug tube out. While one of the plugs were out I stuck my finger in the tube and it just pulled out. It is just a friction fit from the 2 O-rings.

There is a special tool to pull the tubes out but the mechanics I know do not use it. They just pry the tube out. In my case I was able to use just a finger, perhaps because the engine was a bit warm.

I found using a plumbing fitting, 3/4" BSP taper, I think, screwed gently into the plug tube gave a nice grip to remove it.
