stiubhartach is on a distinguished road
Oil on the electrodes means oil in the cylinder which can come from three problems.
1. Oil in the intake manifold from a malfunctioning CCV system
2. Valve stem seals leaking
3. Piston rings leaking

Start at the easiest to check and work your way down (#1, #3, then #2)
A. Look in the intake manifold for oil (fiber optic camera)
B. Compression test to check rings
C. If the two above don’t show problems, then it’s probably valve stem seals
