You are burning oil either from valve guides/seals or rings likely. will need to have qualified tech inspet to pinpoint.

More than likely your valve cover gasket is leaking allowing oil to pool at the base of the spark plug. It should be fixed to keep from damaging the spark plug and wire

I sure hope you're right amigo. I have the same problem. And replacing a valve cover gasket will be a helluva lot easier than overhauling the whole engine if its the rings or seals like the other comment said!
