Do you mean in the plug holes? If so the plug tube seals have failed.

If the spark plugs are oil fouled it's worn engine components. Such as piston rings, or valve guide seals. You can install spark plug anti-foulers and nurse it along for a while but the engine is tired. HTH. -Jim

They fit on the spark plugs and help them to fire in a high oil consuming Engine.
