Default Plugs and wires... With a suprise

Car threw a P0300 code. (Random misfire)

So I changed plugs and wires and reset the code, no code. Great, or is it?


Whilist changingthe plugs I took out 2/3 first (don't ask why, I don't know.)

Then I took out 1 and 4, both of them have oil in the plug tube. What would cause this?

You may need a new valve cover gasket and tube seals...you should change it asap before your new spark plugs go bad again...it's like $30 for the kit

Awesome DC, if you have everything hed need (or roughly what hed need) and sold it close to or well under the auto store price then he could scoot out with new gaskets and seals for a decent price and no more oil!

Looks like pickled petey caught the oil in plug bug from arcane.

Heres a thought. Mr snyder, who previously owned arcane said the oil only leaked when it warmed up outside... How odd... My leak is small, so its probably new, but mr snyder said that arcane has had that spark plug issue for over 2 years! He just changed the plugs very often so the fact he never fixed it prob caused the seal to get worse and worse.

Does anyone recommend a head gasket change while one has the uim and all the doo dadas removed or is it just too many more steps to get to that point.

Pic of plugs cming soon! Caus of the oil issue and my plugs and wires are not oem ill just clean my pluga and just replace them whenever I can do the gasket change (prob tuesday when i go to see morkeste)
