MAZDA PROTEGE GAS PROBLEM

2000 Mazda Protege • 140 miles

Its an ES 1.8L eng. I have oil on bottom of 2 of my 4 spark plugs. Took plugs out cleaned them off n wiped cylinders out n ran for a few days til the oil leaks back into cylinders. Does this mean I need piston rings and if so what all needs replaced when doing that?

Mean electrode? If yes maybe valve guide seals

LoL. Oil is leaking into the holes that my spark plugs are in ( not sure what that is called) but oil is on the bottom of only 2 of my 4 plugs. What is causing this and what parts do I need to buy to have this fixed? A friends husband is gonna fix it but I need to know all parts I need to purchase to fix it.

The leak should be from the plug seal under the valve cover gasket.

What you need would be the valve cover gasket, inclusive of the plug seals.
