HELP: oil in spark plug duct

Installed new sparks yesterday and the Accel super coils...and noticed this in one of the spark plug ducts, it was the left bank, closest cylinder to the front of the car.

Is this normal ? Perhaps it is from the crank pressure of the manifold ? I have an oil separator..

Plugs looked fine...the oil as you can see was just minor in the wedges of the duct...

I've seen that twice, once on my old mr2 and once on my wife's pt cruiser. Both times it was the valve cover gasket.

It can happen and if you have basic tools you can do it in your garage unless your under an extended warranty then just take to the dealer. Otherwise if you want fix it yourself pm me. I might have Ford instructions on how to do so.
