SOURCE: replace valve cover gasket
I have the same problem on a 2003 Town & Country. The cover for the front 3 cylinders is quite straight forward, but in order to do the rear cylinders I believe you are going to have to remove the cowling below the windshield. You will need a gear puller to remover the windshield wipers first, then remove the cowling. Than should give you more room to work. It's still not going to be easy, but it sure beats paying hundreds of $$$$ in labor charges.

I dont think you have an head gasket problem.Check that your therostat is working.Try running the engine without it.Or replace it.I would like to now a little moore about this problem,You dont give enough detail on it.

The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot for your comment."
SOURCE: 1996 SL1 after engine overhaul oil is having to be added regularly. Rings replaced, valve seals replaced, valves ground and reseated and head pressure tested by machine shop, head gasket replaced, ti
Depending on how long since the overhaul, and how much oil is being used, you may not have any worries.
Engines built in the factory are within very close tolerances. Engines rebuilt in the shop are not.
So like it was 50 yrs ago, your rebuilt engine may need some break-in time to wear in. The piston rings have to seat or wear into the shape of the cylinders, and so on.
Most of the time you can expect to use some oil for the first few thousand miles then it should stop. You have to drive the car at various speeds and not under much strain for the first thousand or so.
After the first oil change at 3,000 oil consumption should drop off to normal.
