I have a 1998 Chevy Prizm 1.8L (same as Toyota Corolla) with 76,000 miles. When I changed the spark plugs, I some oil on the ceramic part of one of the plugs (#2 cylinder). There was also some on the threads. It was not a lot of oil, like this guy:
but there was definitely a teaspoon full of oil.
Any ideas on what's wrong?
Incidentally, my car has been burning oil (not leaking) for the past 9 months or so...perhaps oil is leaking past some gasket and then into the chamber where it burns?
Thanks for your time!
