2000 Honda CR-V woes

My daughters CR-V 'check engine light' is on. When i went to change the spark plugs for her,i found all the spark plug wells filled with oil.

Is this a expensive fix, and worth any further repairs? Car has 140k on odo.

Thanks

easy peasy but needs know-how. you need to replace vlave cover and rocker arms towers seals.
here's our g'ol buddy Eric the car guy with step by step:

PS to make it clear - yours is identical or very similar. BTW, with valve cover off, when done, adjust rockers. She's long due on this. Careful with adjustment bolts!! They can crack if over-torqued!!
