Thanks Nighthawk. how would any valve gaskets (like the stem seal) leak oil in to the plug wells though? as the spark plug seals oil coming up and the rocker cover gasket stops it seeping from where the cams live... im thinking it has to be the rocker cover gasket :wacko:

Sorry mate, was pretty drunk last night so explaining things not good lol

 

I pulled out the ht lead and it was dry.... but pulled out the spark plug and it was smothered in oil. I looked down the well and there was a bit of oil but not loads (like ive seen on many Vauxhalls)

Hi mate,

 

Yeah defo oil. And no blue smoke and definitely not HG as I tested with a block tester two months ago cos I'm paranoid lol

 

They don't just leak outside... they can leak in to the spark plug wells too :)
