Well, here's my story:

I was doing my tune-up today, and I started by pulling the right bank, firing a little hot, but nothing to concern me.

The left bank, however, was a different story. All 4 plugs on the left bank had oil dripping from the plug when I pulled them out. The engine runs smooth, so they can't be oil fouling, and the engine doesn't seem to be burning oil, so I am doubting rings, especially since only one side is doing it.

I am fearing I need new heads, any other options for a problem that I may be overlooking??

Thank you in advance

I'll bet the valve cover gasket is leaking oil into the plug holes.
So when you remove the plugs they get coated with oil.

Check for this and let us know.

My valve cover gasket isn't leaking, i thought about that though.

But, you are right. I called the dealership I bought it from, and they changed valve cover gaskets before i bought it. I'm guessing they did a shotty cleaning job, because i cleaned it up, and the oil hasen't came back.

Thanx for the help.
