doclouie If it was just on the threads it probably leaked from the valve cover and isn't a concern. Valve cover gasket is an easy fix.

Brianmlove The oil was just on the threads and it has a little over 86k on the engine

jgorm If its just the threads if may have leaked out of the valve cover into the plug hole. If the electrode has oil on it, the rings or valve seals are bad.

wolfpack72 Was the oil only on the threads and not on the firing gap? How many miles are on the motor?

oil on spark plug

I have an 05 TJ X w/ 4.0 6 cyl auto and 2" suspension lift on 32x11.5x15's. I had a misfire code pop so I was checking to make sure that each spark plug was properly gapped and the last one i took out had oil on the threads. I was talking to my buddy and he said it was looking towards and engine rebuild, but I was going to get your guys opinion.
