I went to change the spark plugs on my 2007 focus last week and noticed the plug holes were filled with oil. After my initial panic and a search on here I realized that I just need to replace the valve cover gasket. I still have a few questions though.
1: What is the best way to get all the oil out of the hole before I remove the spark plugs?
2: With the spark plug boot sitting in oil, will I also need to replace those now?
3: What are the specs for how much I need to torque the bolts down to when I install the new gaskets?
I already have the new gaskets and will be putting them on this weekend, just looking for any tips to make it go as smoothly as possible.
I don't want to see this anymore.............
And this cylinder, the plug was completely submerged.
