Simple. There is a circular gasket for each spark plug between located between the valve cover and the engine. If they are not properly sealed, the oil from the top of engine will leak out of the valve cover and pool into the spark plug sockets. You must remove the oil BEFORE you remove the spark plugs. Anyway, the fix is purchase and install a new valve cover gasket and spark plug gaskets and use a gasket sealant.

How do you change spark plugs for a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant?

basically, if you lift the hood and look directly at the engine (the big silver thing), on the top left side of it as you are looking at it from the front is where you place the oil in (oil cap). Just above that are the four spark plugs. They are underneath the plug and coils. you would have to unscrew the two bolts holding the coils down to get to two of the spark plugs, and the other two spark plugs, you just pull the wires off. (Just pull)
