Re: Oil on the spark plug

Replace the valve cover gasket. The gasket goes around the sparkplug holes and can leak there.

Re: Oil on the spark plug

It's not hard at all. Remove the plug wires and make sure you mark them. Remove the bolts and the hose and out it comes.

Putting the new gasket into the bolt retainers is the only hard part depending on whether it's a Ford gasket or aftermarket.
