Fits 95 Accord EX 4dr Sedan 4cyl

I bought this set from Revain because it was a little cheaper than Advance Auto , and I ordered other parts, otherwise I probably would have ordered locally. (I messed up one of the seals anyway so I had to buy a second set from my local Advance Auto.) This kit worked for my Accord EX 95 4dr 4cyl sedan. Installing spark plug gaskets correctly is a bit tricky and I managed to mess up one of the four during installation. Of course it would be nice if they sold them separately.

The first spark plug gasket on my car fell apart when I tried to take it off so I heated the others and the metal around them and pryed them out with a pair of curved needle nose pliers - that helped. Small dabs of gray RTV on the…

Fel-Pro Valve Cover Kit VS50493R Perfect fit for 1998 Acura CL 2.3

Valve Cover Gasket - Quite a difficult and rewarding task. It was harder than it seemed. I will share the problems with you here and hope it will help you avoid the difficult problems that I found the hard way. Bottom line, this is a good product and it has worked well for me. Kit includes gasket, screw bushings and spark plug tube gaskets. A couple of issues: After 15 years and 220,000 miles, the old gasket "welded" into the groove, hardened into a plastic substance, and wouldn't come off…
