So I was doing a general tune up when I found out that plugs 2 & 3 have oil only in the bottom of them. Tips look the same across all four which happen to look fine so no problem with that. No smoke from the tail pipe and the car is running fine.
1 of the spark plugs only seems to have oil on one side only at the bottom half of it....Maybe a leak between 2 & 3
I want to have an Idea what I'm looking at in regards to work involved. I've done oil changes and thats about it.
an utterly annoying squeak when I push in the clutch. The sound is definately coming from that think on the upper middle part of the picture. I was able to put lithum grease on what seem to be the smaller slave cylinder but its def the one that goes into the transmission. I was going to just put wd 40 in there but the smarter half of me said nOOOOO
take that boot off in the top middle of pic, spray white lithium grease in there, dont be shy, spray alot, i notice it helps if you have someone pumping the clutch pedal while spraying in it. As for the spark plug with oil, i havent taken the valve cover of the tc yet but the spark plug have its own gasket that you would need to change out. once rubber gets hard, its useless when it comes to sealing. shouldnt be too hard to swap it out.
Oil Problem: Definitely your spark plug grommets that come with your valve cover gasket. I'm sure they are just cashed from over time.
Clutch Squeak: It comes and goes, nothing wrong or bad is going on, but if you're just concerned about the noise, pull that boot back and grease all that up and then immediately get in the car and push the clutch in a handful of times to work it in.
