Any coolant leak is extremely serious.
But the fact it is just into the spark plug well means it is probably from a nearby hose or something.
So then all you have to do is find the leak and replace the hose.
In order to do that, borrow a coolant system pressure tester from a place like Autozone. Then pump it up beyond normal pressure, so that you can see the leak. (make sure the system is filled with coolant, or you won't be able to see the leak still.)
When you are done fixing the leak, make sure it hold pressure, and that you don't have another leak, like a bad head gasket. And if you have let it overheat, you might consider replacing the thermostat.

It's probably condensation, unless it smells like coolant. If it smells like coolant, there may be a crack in the spark plug tube allowing coolant to leak into it under pressure. Add a UV dye to your coolant and run it for awhile, then inspect under blacklight for a neon color near the spark plug.

comment exactly what you mean when you say --covered in oil

2-- are the center electrodes black with oil and misfiring
if it the outside then replace the rocker cover gasket or if the plugs are recessed into the rocker cover , replace the oil seal under the plug tube in the rocker cover

Oil leaking into spark plug access tubes


The cover will need to be removed prepared for the new seal & re-sealed. When you look at the gasket set you'll need for the job, you will see the seals that keep oil from leaking in around the plug area. You'll also want to check & make sure you don't have back pressure coming from a converter that is going bad or has passed that point already, that's a major cause of seals to leak, that and the heat in the head of the engine caused by the exhaust blockage.

Good luck.

2001 jaguar s-type 4.0 oil in spark plug area


Hi bravo956
i also have the same problem regarding the oil leak. this is due to the spark plug gasket leaking and you will need to replace them. they are circular gaskets about 1.5 inches across that fit to the underside of the rocker covers and prevent oil from seeping down the long spark plug hole. when i investigated my leak i assumed it was just the rocker cover gasket that was leaking but once everything was removed it is obvious.
