Oil in spark plug

So, I changed my plugs and wires today. (Ngk wires from inline4 and Ngk irridiums) anyway I was taking the 3rd spark plug put and I noticed it had some suction, when I got it up the entire bottom half of the plug was covered in oil, I've also been havung some oil burning problem, so I think these are related. Anyway how is this fixed.. tube seals? Gasket of some kind?.. etc.. thanks

Re: Oil in spark plug

i had a good amount in all my plugs too a few months ago. change the cylinder gaskets along with valve cover gasket etc an you should be good. all h22s burn oil, but this should slow it down a bit. i bought this gasket kit, shipped fast an it comes with the head bolt seals too :)

Re: Oil in spark plug

i juz replaced oilpan gasket, valve gasket, all 4rings around the spark plugs, and i had to get new rubber seals on the top of the v.cover where the bolts go, as well as all new bolts. i still get oil drops by my filter tho.

Re: Oil in spark plug

Valve seals and head gasket. Now would all this contribute to me burning and losing oil, I understand the engine burns oil but I can smell it, so I know its fairly substantial

Probably from the oil cooler ring

Re: Oil in spark plug

Before you do anything i would check to make sure your valve cover is on tight enough. one of my bolts was loose and it was causing the same problem. make sure they are all torqued to 8 ft/lbs but not any more or you could snap a bolt.
