If there is oil in the spark plug wells then you need to take the valve covers off and replace the seals and gaskets.

What does this mean:
a little oil on the spark plug threads, and not on the ignition tip. oil is just like smeared on the threads, and not a lot.

^ Read shoz123's post above. You need to pull the valve (cam) cover(s) and replace the spark plug tube o-ring seals. They come with a valve cover gasket set or can be bought separately.
