Q: Wet spark plug on 2004 Ford F-150

When I went to change the plug in my 4.6 it was soaking wet with what appears to be motor oil. Where would this be coming from? I pulled it do to a "#6 cylinder misfire first 1000 rpm engine code."

the valve cover seal for the tube is allowing oil into the plug hole contaminating the coil boot. i would replace the valve cover gasket, and the coil.

In this case, Roy would be correct. It probably is a leaking valve cover unless oil was spilled at one time. Any liquid seems to find the way to the bottom of the spark plug area.
