Well today i changed out my spark plugs. And when i pulled out spark plugs 4 5 and 6 and the bottom half was covered in oil.I Also found out that i was running on 5 cylinders. The number 5 spark plugs wire wasnt connected to the spark plug so that wire has calcium looking stuff inside of it. So now i gotta replace the spark plug wirs. But does that oil covering the spark plugs mean anything??

It could mean a few things.

Probably either your rings are going or your valve seals are going.

Does your engine consume oil, or puff smoke for the first few minutes after you start it?

probably means your getting oil in the sparkplug galley and when you pulled the plugs, oil got on the bottom part of the plug...sounds like some new seals are in order..

Yeah, it could be the valve cover gasket or something...like I said, it could be lots of things

youd have to diagnose it more

Classic case of leaking valve cover gaskets. Relatively easy and inexpensive to fix.

See this page how to fix it, and pick up a new set of spark plug wires as your oil drenched ones are probably falling apart.

While you have it all apart like that, a compression test would be a good idea. The testers are like 15 bucks, or you can probably borrow one fairly easily.
