Some very unnerving findings today.

1. The spark plugs were toast.

The car has 100,000 Km on it and i bet these are original. We bought second hand but it goes to show you can't depend on PO's for good service history.

2. One of the spark plug wells was COMPLETELY full of oil. Is a new valve cover gasket kit required?

Thanks folks!
