I just changed my plugs, and two of the ones I pulled out (cylinders 2 and 3) had oil on them. I wiped it off, and I couldn't see any evidence that it had burnt on there, they looked like typical worn brown plugs. It wasn't a lot of oil, but it's still real annoying. I'm thinking that it leaked in from above, there was a small amount of oil in the 'tube', but that could have been from pulling them out.

So, what gaskets do I replace, or do you guys think it would be something else? The dipstick shows no signs of burning any oil.

You can get a whole new valve cover gasket set, or just the O-rings for the spark plug tubes. I had to replace mine, the dealer had 20 of them in stock (just the o-rings), yours should too.

yeah it's those oval shaped gaskets at the top of the "tubes" the spark plugs go down into. my dealer didn't have them in stock, but a local parts store had the complete set of valve cover gasket, those oval gaskets, and the little grommets that fit into the cover for the mounting studs for about ~$35. I figured it's not that much oil so I ignored it and just went to the dealer and got the valve cover gasket for $11. (parts store didn't have it)
