    Do you remember which bank was the sparkplug all way to the left? It looks like it has carbon buildup


    Any location

    Never seen a pent roof engine yet that did not leak oil into the spark plug chambers. Old Corolla's and early hemi Chrysler's would fill the holes right up and smoke like crazy for a minute or two after a restart. Oil is non conductive so it's some thing you would never know until you pulled the plugs.
