97 saturn sc2

Asked by Apr 11, 2017 at 08:52 AM about the 1997 Saturn S-Series 2 Dr SC2 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just did the spark plugs yesterday and when I
pulled out the first plug to the left there was oil on
the spark plug and an oil puddle under it. The rest
of them were bone dry after that plug, but I was
curious to see if it could be a valve cover gasket or
is it a bad head gasket? It's an automatic with
116k.

Yes cam cover (valve cover) gasket is letting oil leak into the spark plug well. Just replace the gasket.
