If Biggy1 has described it right, I think when you remove the WIRE to the spark plug ( not the plug itself ) and oil jumps out, there is a cylindrical seal that needs replacing and one does not need to even remove the cylinder head.
I have the same problem with my corolla. On the other hand if Biggy meant when removing the SPARK PLUG oil was on the contacts....

Toyota is aware of this situation. Production changes have ocurred to correct this condition.
Here is what you do: Take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer. Tell them that you have a P-0741 code, and you want them to apply "Toyota Technical Service bulletin TC008-04" to your vehicle. They will perform several tests, and if you vehicle is lower than 5 years old, and less than 60, 000 miles, they will fix it for free. This TSB is covered by the Powertrain Warranty. Additionally, Thay may replace the ECU with an updated unit, and that particular warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles.
This will definatly cure your issue.

SOURCE: Where are the spark plugs
The spark plugs are actually along the top side of the engine. They do not have external wires like some vehicles. First remove the dust cover. Next, there are 4 hex screws along the top of the head that reatin the spark plug casings. Remove these screws and twist out the spark plug connectors and change the plugs as normal. You will need a small flat head screw driver to undo the retaining clip for the electical connections. Be sure to use pre-spaced iridium plugs. you will need to remove the few bolts that hold down the cover for the wires to get to cylinders 3 and 4. 1 and 2 are okay to do without removing this, but remember to change the whole set of plugs. It is an east task.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Corolla Radio fuse
Pg. 250 of your 2005 Owner's Manual shows the location of the Fuse Boxes. There is one under your hood on the driver's side and the other is under the dash just to the left of steering wheel. Pg 272, will show you how to replace the fuses. Pg. 286-287 gives a diagram and description of each fuse and what part of the electrical system it enables.
This portion of the electrical system correspondeds to the fuse in position 32 on pg. 287 of the manual.
Your going to have to get on your back with a flashlight and open up the fuse box under the dash by the steering wheel. The lid of the fuse box shows the positions of the fuse and their amperage rating. Like I said, replace the fuse in postion 32 (15 Amp). There is a spare 15 Amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood (easy to get to, see the diagrams in the owner's manual). There is also a fuse puller tool next to the spare fuses.

SOURCE: need to replace the spark plugs
The top of the engine has a cover remove to see ignition coils. Remove wires then coils, plugs are under coils. This is called coil on plug system. Make sure engine is over night cold before you do this, aluminum heads are easy to pull threads when they are hot. Always replace with OEM plug cheap plugs burn out coils !!!
