Wow. Replacing spark plugs and all spark plug tubes on the right covered in oil

Not only that, but the coilpacks in 2 out of 3 cylinders have split rubber and there's some oil on the spark plugs in those. I had a P1124 and P1126 CEL, but don't think they relate to this and am betting more on AOS or dirty MAF for those. I did sense a slight hesitation at 4k, so perhaps this is where that's coming from.

I'll definitely be replacing the spark plug tubes. Can I replace just the two coilpacks that have split rubber, or is it necessary to replace all 6 at the same time? Would prefer to save money where possible as this last week has been expensive.

Thanks

Just replace what is deemed bad. Inspect the coils closely for cracks.

The soft, silicone rubber "boot" part of the coil pack is available separately, and should cost a lot less than replacing the entire coil. The replacement number is 996-602-103-01.

Hey, that's good to hear. I'll get that separately, thank you

FYI, I just dealt with both of those codes and it ended up being a vacuum tube under the intake that had come loose.
