    I changed out my spark plugs as I don't know when they've been changed it their condition, all the plugs seemed ok nothing different from one or the other but I'm on some of the plugs there was a good bit of "dirt" in the threads. Could that have just been the old anti-sieze that was on there or is that a sign of something else? Also, when I took my intake tube off the throttle body has signs of some dark fluid (oil?) leaking thru the ports

    What year vehicle. The throttle body can sometimes get some oil coming through the PCV system if that's what's happening.

    Were the plugs abnormally hard to pull? Did the threads come with them? Did everything go peacefully?

    It's a 96 cobra that I recently purchased. The plugs came out nice and easy, no issues. I haven't replaced the pcv valve yet either

    I only got that because of the discount for my sponsorship. I had another before that one that looks the same except it is vented and missing the logo.
