I searched around the forum and didn't quite see an answer to this as it pertains to a V-6 in a RAV. I picked up some Iridium plugs to change out the 129K-mile original ones. After pulling the plug in the front, driver side, I noticed oil on the bottom of the coil. It was enough that it dripped a good bit, not just a trace of something.

This doesn't seem normal [/sarcasm]. The car hasn't used a bit of oil between changes since new. Has anyone found this on their V-6 specifically, and, what was the cause/remedy?

Thanks much in advance.

It could be as simple as the valve cover gaskets. Along with the gasket that runs around the perimeter of the valve cover, there are 3 circular gaskets on each bank that seal those spark plug holes.
