What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

I’m not sure how many others out there have had this, but the trusty Honda D16 in my CRX decided the oil seals around the spark plug tubes should leak. What that means is that I needed to pull the valve cover and the rocker assembly in order to reach both sets of seals.

I’ve done a ton of work on my car(s) in the past, but I’ve never really had to start taking stuff off the engine. I was kind of worried that I was going to mess something up or (typical to working on anything) find something that is impossible to remove. In this case, nothing of the sort. It lives again and ready to take down to NJMP next week.


Mission accomplished!
