    Default Oil in spark plug (only one)

    Hi all, I have an automatic 02 gti. I replaced my spark plugs recently and upon taking out the coil pack I noticed oil in the coil as well as oil where spark plug actually screws into. Also, this is only for the spark plug /coil all the way on the end closest to the air intake. Any ideas on what it could be and how to fix it? How bad is it? I have noticed a slight change when driving. As applying gas I feel as the power drops suddenly and jus kinda dissapears until I give the gas a nice little push so the turbo comes back. Hope to hear from yall, thanks.

    Ok well, yesterday I changed the valve cover gasket. The old one did break apart upon taking it out. So after driving with the new one, will putting a new gasket make my car drive better? I feel like it does, idk if its all in my head or what.

    Should I be concerned for any other problems that may have or can occur since the gasket was bad? Any oil somewhere where it shouldn't be?

    Theirs a 99% chance it was just the bad gasket.... Don't let anyone freak you out. If your still unsure of your finished result. Take the coils off again at around 1k miles, and inspect. If the oil is gone then BANG! You've corrected the issue yourself!
