    A "tune-up" will not fix this. You may need some regular maintenance, but the reason for the oil leak needs to be fixed. It doesn't sound major, but you need a diagnosis from a competent professional.

    This actually isn't that bad of a fix. It's very common for this to happen on your vehicle. The Plymouth Breeze had a bad design with the motor. To fix the oil in your spark plug hole, you need to buy a valve cover gasket kit. It should come with the valve cover gasket and 4 spark plug tube gaskets. These tube gaskets are known for always leaking.

    No, a tune up will not fix that, but you can however use a siphon, to suck the oil out of the hole, (gas siphons are obtainable at your local autozone.) After sucking the oil out of the hole, monitor it closely. If the problem persist, in which most cases it will, you will need to remove the valve cover, and replace your valve stem seals.

    there may be one or two things that is causing that, if you have a PCV valve, it needs to be replaced. if not then it may indicate a blow by, meaning oil piston ring needs to be replaced or repossitoned
