This is a common problem, when you remove your spark plug leads you will see 4 big hex nuts holding down your valve cover, these screw onto a steel tube that in turn srews into the alloy head of the engine (the tube is threaded both ends). what happens is there is sealant on the bottom thread that breaks down over time and allows oil to seep past into the spark plug chamber. Changing the valve cover gasket alone won't fix this!

It is really a mechanic job but not impossible to do at home if you're good with a spanner. You just remove the valve cover (the 4 big nuts and some other bits and pieces) then double nut the end of each tube and unscrew. Clean up each thread and reseal with a good thread sealer. then jam it all back together with a new valve cover gasket. note- don't over tighten the big nuts when putting the cover back on.

Cheers.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil


i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold

Changing out spark plugs on a 1994 Toyota Camry 2200 4 cylinder


No there will be no more disassembly necessary than that, what you see is the top of a spark plug, may not look that way, but you will need a 3" extension and im not sure if it is a 5/8 or a 13/16 socket size, but one of those two for sure, when you install the new plugs, make sure that they go in straight and be careful not to overtighten them, if you strip out the threads, your going to have a hell of a time repairing that, GOOD LUCK

Where are the spark plugs for a 2004 kia spectra


Underneath the spark plug wires. If you have the 4-cylinder, there should be 4 wires/plugs in the holes in the valve cover (or three on each side in the V6). If you pull up on those wire plugs, the spark plugs are inside those cylinders. 
On the top of the motor remove the plastic cover. it will give you access to the coils and plugs.

Using a 10mm socket, remove the engine cover. All 4 plugs are in the center of the block. Two are really easy to find, the other two need to be removed after you remove the cover on top. You will need a 10mm socket to gain access to them. Don't forget your extender when changing the plugs. 

Good Luck and hope this helps. 
You may want to get Platinum plugs since they have a longer life, just make sure the gaps are correct. Do not gap them, they should be pre-gaped and i believe to be at 0.032

Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.

2004 Toyota Camry


The solution is for a 4 cylinder
Find the camshaft cover, located at the top of the engine.
There yfind 4 square rubber objects with wires connected to the coils, pull them up, inside the exposed tubes you find the spark plugs.
You will need a 5/8 spark plug socket on an 8" extension with a ratchet to remove the spark plugs.
