2002 Volkswagen Passat • 123,000 miles

Okay so I have a 02 pássat va glx. I bought it a month ago. It ran fine until the battery went dead. So I had my auto zone replace the battery. We notice the cable was torn. He put electrical tape on it and the car wouldn't start. Jumped it started right away. But when I cut it off it wouldn't start again. So we removed the old cable and replaced it and it started! Welll the next day I went to start it and it wouldn't start. All of my insides are working. It will crank but wont start. Took plugs out noticed on left side top plugs had oil on them! We are replacing the valve cover gasket and plugs. I'm just nervous Bc it started yesterday I enter know about piston rings.N
