hey guys new to ford mods, wondering if anyone can help...

i just changed over my plugs and coils on my phoon and found my coil on number 1 covered in oil,
im guessing that the oil was pushed up through the thread of the plugs under compression however when i took the plug out it it was fairly clean around the thread and eletrode area

SHOULD I BE WORRIED? WHERE DID THE OIL COME FROM? SHOULD I GET A COMPRESSION TEST?

i think you will find the oil has seeped through the rocker cover seal where the plug hole is..
