Engine shakes and studders on acceleration. Struggles when idling

Asked by Oct 26, 2016 at 01:26 PM about the 1995 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last week while driving my 95 Accord in traffic I
noticed it began to accelerate really badly. When i
press the gas to accelerate (espescially in lower
gears) the car studders and has a really hard time
getting up to speed. I found oil in the spark plug
Wells and replaced all of the gaskets and O-rings
below the rocker arms. For some reason I still have
oil in my spark plug Wells. Is there anything else
that can be causing the oil to leak in there? Thank
you.

Intake gasket most probably. Might also be the reason your car is running poorly. Is the check engine light on?

It is almost always due to a failing gasket or O-ring but can also be the result of a failing piston or worn valve guides. So I think you have more of an O-Ring issue

No the check engine light isnt coming on. I was getting code 12 for the EGR sensor prior to beginning to troublesboot this issue. I have cleaned the sensor and it's passage ways and i havent seen the light come back on yet. So the intake gasket is seperate from the valve cover gasket and o rings (which ive replaced) and can also cause oil to leak inside of the spark plug wells?

Ive taken my car to the honda dealership nearby and they cant seem to find the problem. I told them i replaced the valve cover gaskets and the o rings beneath the rockers and they are questioning that i actually did the work because there is still oil in the wells.

Replace ur head gas kit should fix the problam
