Hi - I was checking my spark plugs the other day and I noticed that on 2 spark plugs there was a little amount of oil on them.
Maybe this was due to the engine not been started for a while - anyway just to make sure I am going to do a compression test when I get home and see what the results are.
hopefully they will be o.k - however does anyone know where I can get of valve stem seals from - in the event that mine are worn and just need changing out and hopefully it isnt the piston rings?

all input welcomed

Those seals are easy to find, but I would worry about the valve cover gasket first.

thanks gall - i will check the gaskets but they were new when i fitted them a while back - that being said you never know - the 2 spark plugs in question are next to each other on the trunk side.
