2000 Rodeo LSE 3.2 leaking oil into the sparkplugs

For two years it has leaked oil into the #1 and 3 sparkplugs, the valve cover gaskets have been changed 3 times by mechanics, needless to say I'm trying to find the problem myself

sounds like you need new piston rings. the rings are to keep oil away from top of piston(where the plugs are. major repair.

depends on how much oil is getting in there. there is no other way for oil to get into the combustion chamber.
