Default quick sanity check

last week when trying to repair my wife's 06 accord, I couldn't get any compression. so when I tested the compression checker on my 97 accord, I found out that apparently the gaskets by the spark plugs are pretty much shot. all 4 plug wires were covered in oil. so long story short, looking up new gaskets, and it looks to me that P/N 91301-PT0-003 (O-Ring) from Honda is the gasket that I am looking for, just want to get some reassurance before I buy them.


Thanks in advance.

Most folks replace valve cover gasket and spark plug tube gaskets as a set. Felpro or OEM are both good options.

good luck

But is that the correct part number for the OEM gaskets?

What trim level/engine is in the 97? Either way, if I'm that far into something I would replace the "set"....Upper tube, lower (if non-vtec) and valve cover gasket.
