Oil on my spark plugs!

Hey I drive a 1995 Si (Manual) and out of no where my car started to drive poorly. One day it was fine and with in a matter of 2 or 3 days it started to get very bad. So like I said I drive a 4th gen Si and the motor has 180,000 miles on it. Right now, at both idle and while driving the engine is sputtering. My idle is only somewhat rough, it will jump about 200 or 300 rpm every 5 seconds or so.

So I checked my spark plugs and there was some oil in the #3 and 4 spark plug cylinders, not a lot, not a puddle, but there was some oil in there. The oil was on the bottom of the spark plug wire, and then some more on the threading of the spark plug.

I looked at my valve cover gasket but it looked fine!

o ya and I can smell burning oil obviously, just though I'd throw that in there to see if it helps out.

what could it be?

Thanks

Re: Oil on my spark plugs!

its not the VC itself, but it's those 4 o-rings/gaskets that plug the spark plug tubes w/ the VC. when you buy a VC gasket, it comes w/ these 4 as well. cheap fix, like $12 or w/e

I checked those, sorry I didn't specify, when I took off the cover I looked at the 4 grommets as well.
