what do you think is causing the brown on the sparkplug? leaky O Ring valve cover gasket, or what? It is like that on the middle 2 cylinders.

and here is a movie of how my car sounds - It is really really loud because I have an exhaust leak where the manifold bolts to the head, the flex join, where it connects to the Cat, and the other end of the Cat.

F*CK PACESETTER :mad:

I just installed my S4's also, so if you think its a lopey Idle thats why

so does anyone know the answer to my question?

"what do you think is causing the brown on the sparkplug (wire)? leaky O Ring valve cover gasket, or what? It is like that on the middle 2 cylinders."

It looks like burnt oil on the plug wire and in the tube the wire goes down before it connects to the plug, **** like this kinda freaks me out thats why I want a second opinion.

I would have to say it is the o-ring, after i removed my VC and reinstalled I had that problem, new rings should take care of that.

You DEFINITELY need a new valve cover gasket kit. That should solve your problem...I would change your plugs too at the same time.

well I found this when I put in my cams the other day, which also included new gaskets and a new valve cover.

plugs, wires, cap and rotor will be here tomorrow from Courtesy Nissan.
