Hey guys I have an ef xr6 and i've just pulled out my spark plugs and the one from cyl 2 was covered in oil, the car had been running a bit rough lately. What couldve caused the oil to get in the cyl? All I can think of is the piston rings

hi, do a compression reading dry , then add a cap or 2 of engine oil to each cylinder and do another compression reading ..... if i remember correctly , and the comp reading goes alot higher than the dry reading rings are worn,,,,,
