Re: Rocker gasket problem!!

How to replace the Rocker Cover Gasket did you try this thread and as above did you change the spark plug seals and the rubber grommets for the 10mm bolts?

I bought my gasket and spark plug seals and the rubber grommets from the dealer all cost me 35 that was just one side doh well if the oil got under the rubber insulator that sits on top of the plug could cause the chugging wouldnt be driving it to far till you get it sorted cause sounds like to me a lot of oil leaking from the spark plug seals and running onto the ht lead insulator and thats whats proberbly causing your misfire problem
