most will find a spark plug tube seal failed, this tube seal is used when a spark plug goes thru the engine valve cover into the cylinder head, so the leak is an actually external leak onto the spark plug not internal in the combustion chamber, this explains why the engine runs fine.

to replace the tube seals,is it a complicated job or basic for the home mechanic?
