hello today i was checking the sparks plugs i saw #1spark plug with oil ... i need to know what is going on so i can take action..... hopefully is nothing serious thats why i need ur help...
theres usually 2 round gaskets that seal off the spark plug tube. One seats into the valve cover while the other seats at the bottom of the spark plug tube. I wouldnt really say its a serious problem, but you should replace it eventually. over time gaskets deteriorate and it's only going to get worse. What needs to be done is the valve cover needs to be removed. The gasket is seated in a groove on the valve cover which you can pry out. the lower one involves you taking a set of pliers and pulling the spark plug tube out to gain access to the lower gasket. Farily straight forward, as ive done this myself last year

You've just described the 3.2/3.5. He has a 2.7. The spark plug wells are part of the head casting on the dos siete. Valve cover gaskets/rings as you and Mich have already said - dealer or Felpro. (I assume the oil you're talking about is on the coil side of the plug and not on the electrodes - picture was too blurry to tell.)
Hard to say. Total system capacity is 25 ozs. If it's so low as to keep the compressor off, you're likely to need at least a pound. But really you should have a dual gage set and use the chart in the FSM (outlet vent air temperature) to know when it's to the proper level.
If it is low, you have lost an unknown quantity of oil - either use 134A with oil in it, or get a separate can of oil and put it in. Total system capacity is 5 oz. If your system is empty, or close to it, of 134, I'd go with 2 to 3 ozs. of oil. If only topping off, 1 or 2 ozs.
Use PAG oil *only*. PAG 46 (ND-8) is what came in ours, but with age and wear on the compressor, wouldn't hurt to go with the slightly thicker PAG 100.
