Shitty, I changed my spark plugs and noticed there was a lot of oil on the spark plug threads and on the porcelain part of the spark plug. Does this mean i need a valve job? Mabe oil from the turbo's????

I am currently BPU w/ 140K miles. The wierd part is that i don't burn oil and there is no smoke out the exhuast.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I already did a search and went threw 10 pgs. All topics releated to this were for MK3's.

Thanks guys. I re-ran the search for "valve cover gaskets" and it seems like everyones had this problem. Sorry for the repost. For some reason, I couldn't tell if the valve covers were above the spark plug valley, so i thought that it would be a non issue.

Awsome, buy some new valve cover gaskets and run it for a little longer until i have enought money for a re-build.
