Check compression, plug, coil, injector and wiring.

Start with plugs to see

I took the spark plugs out and there is oil inside the whole. Its not burning oil but
I see oil around the spark plugs. I that a big job looks like the engine block is deep
I am guessing that in order to fix that I need to open the valve cover gasket but not sure
how easy is to replace the seal. Looks you need to open the engine? Any Idea?

Looks like a seal around the spark plug not sure. Your the expert on that!
