Cam End Plug Leak (Gen. 3)

Cam End Plug Leak

From: Daniel Wolstenholme (dwolsten@pinn.net)
I just had this problem in my '94 Integra LS with about 20,000 miles on it. It's on its first batch of Mobil1 5W-30 synthetic oil, and developed a slow leak out of the cam end plug. I cleaned up the spilled oil on the head, then squirted some RTV (VersaChem "Mega Grey 999" to be exact) around the end of the plug: there's a little space between the edge of the plug and the aluminum head, if you look at it. I squirted the RTV in there, used my finger to push it in and keep it flush, and let it dry overnight. It hasn't leaked since. Next time I adjust the valve clearances, I may take the plug out and reinstall it with new RTV, but this fix seems to work fine.
