    Major problem spark plugs covered in oil ?

    right i got a major problem ? The spark plugs are covered in oil ?

    i have cleaned all the oilout of them and took it for a driver and then took the coil pack back off the they haved started to fill up again, but from one side like a sinking ship ? i have been told that it might be a blocked breather ?

    spoke to my mechanic and he said dont worry about it just clean the breather pipes out ?

    heres a pic of how bad it is



    it runs and started fine and dont use any oil ?

    i have been told that it might be the "o" rings and gasket gone again ?or over filling of the oil?

    it is due for a serivce if thats any help ?

    its a 1.4 16v on a R reg x14xe


    any help much appracheated (sp) and just want to know what worng as i have gotta take it on holiday to cornwall in less than a month ?
