Oil in the spark plug tubes?? That would be caused by seals in the valve cover gasket or under the rockers.
What leads you to believe you have valve problems?

Your first post was vague.

If the oil is above the spark plug where the spark plug wire connects to the plug, then there are a set of seals on the valve cover that will need replaced. You can pick up a set of those seals to change for about $20. Just unplug a spark plug wire and see if there is oil on the end.

The alternative is that oil is where the spark is generated and that would indicate that oil is bypassing the seals in the engine. That would indicate an engine problem.
