    Auto Parts can't  believe this so my Daily Driver '03 Nissian Altima had developed a multi miss firing about last week so I plug my OBD II into it and gives me a code P0300 multiple misfiring detected so I go after the the Boot wires to the plugs and find 3 out of the 4 tube seal chambers filled with oil 😳
    will of course this is my problem no way am i getting good spark 💥💥 to my plugs from the boot wires when they are sitting in oil 😳 so I proceed to go ahead and rectify this problem and get it corrected and pull the Valve Cover and Yes the Seals are shot They Must be Replaced now they are just fancy looking 0-Rings that sit in the cover so me thinking heck can't cost that much 😳 ..... WRONG Now this is my IRK for the day Can't buy just the 0-Rings Must replace the whole Valve Cover 😳😳. You know one of those Nissian Quirks (I miss the old Chevy Days) So no not a few cents for some 0-Rings but $130.00 + CA tax for a Valve Cover and then to look at ......i ask Steve the guy at the Auto Store where is the Gasket for this  over ? Oh will have to purchase that separate he looks at and says just use the old one 😳😳 yea right dude. 
    So Really what should just be and easy replacement has cost me $$ for what amounts to a 0-rings leaking into my tube cylinders 
    and of course Murphys Law.... New Plugs, New Boot Wires , New Boot Wires, New Air Fliter , New PVC ...... Stop Oil Leak in Tube Chambers so the Boots and Tips of Plugs no longer sit in a Oil Bath hope to make  the code go away a make  my Nissian Run like it Should wish me luck guys 
    Any Mechanics on board here ? Let me know if I am heading in the right direction 😳
    Cheers Don 😄....... Are the way me feeling 😳😳
