    Is it possible for oil to come outta the spark plugs, or any where around that area?

    Not really. What motor????? Sounds like maybe a valve cover gasket leaking down into the spark plug wells???

    Might also check the intake manifold gaskets on the front or rear. I had a mystery oil leak that I just could not find and it turned out that when I replaced the gaskets, the rubber one on the rear got turned and let oil leak out and down the back of the engine.

    Oil should not come out the spark plug holes.

    Gotta track down that leak. Degrease/brake clean all block parts, heads, intake, etc. Wipe it all off and then re-run. Trace leak upwards to the source. In many cases, leaks masquerade as coming from places they actually don't. Good Ruck!
