Your valve cover's seal or the cover itself is bad.

Is that a major problem JefferyG

Oil destroys sparkplugs and sparkplug boots (resulting in backfires/no ignition)... not to mention you're loosing oil. Especially in a vital part of the engine, the valvetrain.

You mean valve cover gasket Jeff ?
Blowing of the gasket is a reouccuring thing ?
Is there a stop leak oil additive that i can use to stop this and there is oil over the plugs but it doesnt drip out

Thanks
