Unhappy Oil on spark plug boots (even after new valve cover gaskets)

Hi,
Does anyone know where oil on my spark plug boots could be coming from? I have new valve cover gaskets (including gaskets under screws) but I'm still getting sputtering & oil at spark plug boot.

Any help appreciated

I'd check the gaskets around the plug holes on the valve cover and make sure one didn't get pinched by the cover as it was put on. There really is nowhere else for oil to come from, save from the cylinder and up past the plugs. Is a plug loose and/or are the plugs soaked with oil at the business end?

Dangit, I didn't know I had to replace those too! They never gave me those but I know which ones those are, the big round plastic ones, right? I'll pick those up next business day. (confirmed here on last post by hondaslayer: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...ht=valve+cover )
Also, I noticed that on those spark plug gaskets that 3 were the same shape but the passenger side one closest to the firewall is shaped differently and isn't completely round as if its missing a chunk. I'll see if the new ones I order are all the same shape.

Thanks.
