Question type: Maintenance & Repair

and saw oil covering the whole plug how can I fix
that

If the oil is above where the plug threads are it is very likely that the gasket that keeps the oil out of the plug well is bad. Replacing the cam cover gasket would fix that. See the link, the round gaskets keep oil off of the sparkplugs.....https://www.rockauto.com/info/825/VS25046.jpg
