Oil in spark plug tubes

I got a 2008 mazda 6 with the 2.3 4cyl. It's only running on 2 or 3 cylinders. Went to pull the plugs and there is oil in #2 and #3. Is this a simple gasket fix?

I would install a new valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals.

New plugs and gaskets and it runs better than before. I used a roll of paper towels to get the oil out.

That oil is supposed to be there, keeps your plugs lubed really well. You need to check your blinker fluid level and muffler bearings at this time too.
Darkanion and slims like this.

It runs great now but every now and then it hiccups and loses a cylinder again. The coils got oil in them. I cleaned them real good but I may need to replace one.
